DONTNOD Entertainment has announced that the second episode of its webseries on upcoming action-RPG, Vampyr is now available.
Episode 2: Architects of the Obscure unveils more exclusive gameplay footage and the team talks about the visuals and music that bring 1918 London to life. The remaining two episodes, produced and realised by Focus Home Interactive are due out next Thursday and the week after.
In the second episode you can see the London that you will explore during your time in Vampyr, featuring four districts that have their own distinct style. Whitechapel and the Docks are ravaged by poverty and crime, while the West End benefits from a wealthier population – and is the district of choice for Ekons plotting in the shadows. Pembroke Hospital gives Dr. Reid the opportunity to put his medicinal skills to great effect, while tempting the doctor-turned-vampire with helpless citizens that hold him in a position of trust.
This latest episode also introduces the music of Vampyr, including insight from composer Olivier Deriviere. He discusses how he developed the game’s original score with consideration for its unique setting and atmosphere, as well as how the inner dilemma Jonathan faces translates into the music. Eric-Maria Couturier, of the Paris Ensemble InterContemporain, drives Vampyr’s soundtrack as solo celloist, and here offers an exclusive performance that showcases his unique style.
Vampyr is due for released in Spring 2018.
