Feature article

Our top pick of the week?

Vampyr
05/06/18

It’s been quite some time since we’ve had a solid vampire game, the last one most likely being Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines in 2004. That’s not to say people haven’t tried but, vampires just keep struggling to stick the landing in the games industry.

Vampyr has been pushed back a few times already so we’ve been waiting for this one with bated breath. Now that it is finally here we are ready to sink our teeth into it. A time period we’ve not experienced? A vampire narrative with morality systems? SIGN US UP!
