Another week, another episode of the Vampyr web series, this time the team at DONTNOD are taking a look at the world and how they built it, check it out below.
Each of the four districts has its own distinct style and groups of citizens, which can flourish or perish depending on your actions. 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 cellist, and here offers an exclusive performance that showcases his unique style.
The first episode, was released last week and there are still two more to go, the game itself is coming this Autumn to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
