The world of Vampyr revealed in new artworks depicting the peak of London’s Spanish Flu

Acclaimed game-development studio Dontnod and publisher Focus Home Interactive today showcase new artworks for their new RPG Vampyr, set in 1918, during the peak of the Spanish flu that laid waste to London’s once bustling population.

Following the First World War, Europe is crushed, with its remaining cities ravaged by a foreign influenza. It is spreading through London’s alleyways and streets, diminishing her numbers daily. As her inhabitants shutter themselves attempting to avoid infection, only saints and fools remain outside. Those that remain lay as prey to a new predator, schooled in war and deadlier than influenza: the Vampires.

Unbeknownst to her inhabitants, they prowl among them, blending into the coughs and anguished cries of London’s despoiled, post-War clean-up and restoration efforts. With a city once again under siege, it has never been easier to hide, but so too has there never been a better opportunity to come into the light!

Get a taste of London’s expansive network of diseased riddled alley’s and shuttered night-time streets in three new artworks for Vampyr, coming 2017 to PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Game Description direct from the Publishers website: “Vampyr is set in early 20th century Britain as the country is gripped by the lethal Spanish flu and the streets of London are crippled by disease, violence and fear. In a disorganized and ghostly city, those foolish, desperate, or unlucky enough to walk the streets lay prey to Britain’s most elusive predators: the vampires. Emerging from the chaos, a tormented figure awakens. You are Jonathan E. Reid, a high-ranking military surgeon transformed into a vampire upon his return home from the frontline.”
