Hey, we could really use an awesome vampire game.

Dontnod Entertainment, the team that brought you Remember Me and Life is Strange , has revealed their new game: It's called Vampyr , a role-playing adventure headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

You can see the concept teaser below; it shows the setting (early 20th century Britain) and gives us a few glimpses of the dark, mystical theme. The Spanish Flu has ravaged the streets and vampires aren't helping the situation. Players assume the role of Jonathan E. Reid, a miiltary surgeon that becomes a vampire after returning home from the first Great War.

Here's a description from Dontnod:

"Absolutely all characters in the game are potential victims of your vampiric lust. Carefully study the habits of your next victim, his or her relationships with other characters, and set up your strategy to feed, unnoticed: seduce them, change their daily habits, or make sure they end up alone in a dark street."

Combat will feature melee and shooting mechanics, along with some supernatural vampire skills. We'll even be able to create our own weapons via a deep crafting system. All in all, Vampyr sounds like a great idea and it holds a tentative release window of 2017.

Here's hoping this game isn't as glitchy and clunky as Remember Me was. Such a great premise, such mediocre presentation.

I hope 'Life Is Strange' is successful enough that they get to do all they hope to with this. Definitely love the concept.

Oh YES! Finally, FINALLY a RPG that's not either of a sci-fi flavour or fantasy.

Here's hoping this one will be as cool as Vampire:Bloodlines was back in the days.

Could be okay, I'm just on pins and needles for every episode of Life is Strange right now. Maybe they should be a Telltale Games style studio instead of stuff like Remember Me and Vampyr.
