Story intro

Vampyr is an action role-playing game played from a third-person view. The player controls Jonathan E. Reid, a doctor who was made into a vampire, and whose thirst for blood compels him to kill innocent people. To do this successfully, he must gather information about his targets - study and change their habits, collect clues, and maintain relationships by communicating with the sixty citizens under his care in London, which serves as a fictionalised semi-open world built around hubs of neighbourhoods tethered to other areas. A skill tree facilitates the improvement of abilities, which is fuelled by experience points gained from blood and, alternatively, investigation. Feeding on human blood provides nourishment in addition to unlocking new vampiric powers. Abilities can be manually activated and passively upgraded. Active skills afford defensive, aggressive, healing, and tactical measures; passive skills increase health, stamina, the blood gauge and absorption, bite damage and regeneration, and carry capacity. If one so chooses, anyone can be targeted, bearing consequences for London. It is possible to finish the game without killing citizens, which best preserves the character's cover as a doctor, but leaves him nearly incapable of levelling up. Killing no one unlocks one of four different endings. Reid can turn people into vampires, and is only able to enter a house with an invitation. Locals each have their different backgrounds, relationships, and daily routines. If killed, they impart their last thought to Reid. The "Mesmerise" ability can control the behaviour of weaker targets, like coercing them into revealing information, or guiding them to less conspicuous areas so as to feed without resorting to combat. With crafted medicine, Reid can heal injured or sick victims, whom if eaten, will yield more experience points in the process; the rate of their affliction can be viewed using vampire senses, which also detect blood. Each of the four districts has a score based on the average health of its citizens. Reid navigates London using a waypoint, and collectible documents are scattered around the city.
