Vampyr celebrates release next week with bloodthirsty Launch Trailer!

Vampyr, the narrative-driven action-RPG from DONTNOD Entertainment, releases next week – take control of newly-turned vampire Dr. Jonathan Reid from Tuesday, June 5th, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Today, prepare to stalk or save the streets of 1918 London with Vampyr’s Launch Trailer.

 

 

In Vampyr you play as Dr. Jonathan Reid, a famous surgeon and blood transfusion specialist freshly turned into a vampire after arriving back in his home city of London following the Great War. A man of logic and science, Reid’s firm beliefs are turned inside-out upon awakening to a once-hidden world of secret societies, ungodly creatures and ancient orders set upon ending his existence. All the while, London’s population crumbles under the pressure of a terrible disease – and Dr. Reid may be the city’s last hope to stop it.

Every one of Vampyr’s citizens is part of an interconnected social web, and the fate of one citizen in a social circle will impact the everyday life of the others, as well as the direction of the narrative. Each citizen has their own story, life and personal quests – and every last one can be spared or sacrificed in Reid’s quest. Reid is a vampire, and the fastest way to evolve and unlock new supernatural abilities for combat is by drinking the blood of the living. In Vampyr, it’s not “Do I kill?” but “Who do I kill?”. Deadly encounters plague the doctor’s journey, and each citizen offers a tempting source of power… but there will be consequences.

Each of the four main districts have health status linked with the number of living, dead and sick citizens. By feeding sparingly and keeping the populace healthy with crafted medicines, balance can be maintained. However, if the health status drops too low, the district will be lost to supernatural creatures along with every quest, shop and citizen that once lived there. If every district of London falls, the game can still be played to completion, though with an outcome that suits such recklessness.

Your actions will save or doom London.

Learn more about Vampyr in a live Q&A stream with the developers on June 4 on Twitch!

Vampyr releases June 5 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Preorders are available at http://vampyr-game.com/

5 Expensive Video Games You May Own

5 expensive video games you may own written by Rebecca Geizura (Game Over Box)

 

5. Tooth Protectors (Atari 2600) $450

 

Tooth Protectors was one of the first video games to sponsor a company.  Johnson and Johnson released this game by mail order only.  You play as the Tooth Protector and must save the teeth from the snake.  To do this, you must stop the snake from shooting breadcrumbs.  If the teeth get take too much damage, you can clean them with a toothbrush.

4. Suikoden II (Playstation 1) $150

In this role-playing game, players control a boy who must travel around the world map and advancing the plot.  The side quests and strategic elements make this game one of the most expensive games for the original Playstation. A new factory sealed game may sell for around $300!

3. Musha (Sega Genesis) $300

(Melbourne Console Reproductions)

Musha is one of the few good quality shooting games on the Sega Genesis.  This was a very popular game in Japan, but it never caught on in the United States.  It was also never released in Europe making it a very sought-after game.

 

2. Shantae (Gameboy Color) $320

 

 

Shantae
(gamelife)

This semi-rare game is highly underrated.  Shantae is a platform adventure game that features a half-genie half-girl named Shantae as she travels to defeat an evil lady pirate. The game was released in 2002 shortly after the release of the newer, more powerful Gameboy Advance.

 

1. Earthbound (SNES) $200

 

EARTHBOUND
(eBay) 

 

Earthbound has come to be known as one of the most legendary Japanese RPGs ever created.  The real-world setting and sense of humor make this game so popular today.  The main character Ness can even be seen in many Super Smash Bros games for various Nintendo consoles.  The lack of interest upon release led to a game that was under manufactured.  If you have this game sealed in the box, you could sell it for around $2,000!

If you are a fan of Nintendo games, subscribe to Game Over Box.  Game Over Box is a Nintendo-themed subscription box filled with items from your favorite Nintendo games including Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and Pokémon.
