As a doctor, you made an oath, but as a vampire, you must feed. Use your burgeoning powers to uncover conspiracies festering in the darkest corners of London. The citizens make up an intricate social web, where the consequences of each life taken will ripple through the city. How far into the darkness will you go?

Vampyr will be out on October 29, 2019 for Nintendo Switch, giving you the perfect amount of time to fit it in before Halloween.
