Life Is Strange studio's Vampyr gets some suitably dark new screens

DontNod's blood-hungry action RPG isn't out until next year but here's a few new screens to get your fangs into in the meantime. Vampyr sees you controlling Dr Jonathan Reid, a brand new bloodsucker in 1918 London who is battling the urges to kill as they're directly in conflict with his professional desire not to make people into Happy Meals on legs. 

Understandably people need to die but who and how is your constant dilemma - your decisions influence the world around you creating a murky moral quagmire. Kill a renowned London doctor foe example and the overall health of  your own patients will drop. 

Think the butterfly effect but with fangs and a sprinkling of Dishonored and you're there. This sounds like a fascinating premise so far and I'm absurdly excited by the brooding screens. Spanish flu, vampires and a filthy 1918 London all had me at hello. We'll hopefully see some gameplay at E3.
