Vampyr: Difficulty modes update out next week on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC

Press Release: September 21, 2018 — DONTNOD Entertainment’s narrative-driven action-RPG Vampyr continues to receive ongoing support, as the difficulty modes update releases next week, September 26, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. There’s never been a better time for players to enter early 20th century Britain, as a special discount on Steam for Vampyr is now live in celebration of the Focus Home Publisher’s weekend.

Next Wednesday’s update includes two new game difficulty modes which add further replayability for existing players, and more options for those who haven’t yet sunk their teeth into this dark adventure through 1918 London.

Story Mode de-emphasizes combat, placing a greater focus on narrative so players can enjoy Dr. Jonathan Reid’s journey with less challenging gameplay. On the other end of the scale, Hard Mode makes combat much more difficult. Players will receive less experience from killing enemies too, forcing them to rely even more on embracing citizens to grow in power. Upon starting a new game, players will be given the option to choose from these two new modes or a third ‘Normal Mode’ if they wish to play the original Vampyr experience.

In addition to the new difficulty modes, the upcoming update introduces a host of optimization tweaks and fixes. Nvidia Ansel will also be made available for PC, which allows players to capture beautiful in-game screenshots, viewing and sharing them in 3D on mobile phone, PC or VR Headset.

Press Release: FOX21 has secured the rights to DONTNOD Entertainment and Focus Home Interactive’s hit RPG video game, VAMPYR, for Wonderland Sound & Vision and DJ2 Entertainment to adapt for television.

VAMPYR launched worldwide last June, reaching #1 on STEAM, the internet’s largest video game distribution platform. VAMPYR is game developer DONTNOD’s follow-up to its Peabody and BAFTA Award Winning game, LIFE IS STRANGE, which DJ2 Entertainment is also set to executive produce.

As the developers of VAMPYR, DONTNOD CEO Oskar Guilbert goes on the record to say, “we believe it is a fantastic premise for a television show. This is a new and exciting way for fans of the game, as well as the uninitiated, to enter and engage with VAMPYR’S rich, deep story. We cannot wait to see how the talented team at FOX21 will bring out the darkly atmospheric universe of our game into television.”

Focus’ CEO Jurgen Goeldner agrees and says, “we are delighted to partner with FOX21 for the adaptation of VAMPYR into a TV series. DONTNOD has created a uniquely dark, immersive world with deep narration, which has made VAMPYR already a modern video game classic. We cannot wait to see FOX21 bring all of their talent and experience in launching a TV show that will allow an even wider audience to discover the fantastic universe of VAMPYR.”

The DJ2 team loves the creative vision DONTNOD & Focus devote to all of their projects,” says DJ2 CEO, Dmitri Johnson. “The great relationship we’ve built with them since partnering on their incredible game, LIFE IS STRANGE, allowed us to get on board for VAMPYR well before its release. Like them, we’re excited to collaborate with our friends at FOX21, Wonderland, and the rest of the creative team we’re assembling.” 

Vampyr is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
