Developer Dontnod Entertainment has revealed that a forthcoming update will add new game modes to Vampyr.
According to Dontnod, the update will be: “Coming later this summer on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This will include two new game modes which add further replayability for existing players and more options for those who haven’t yet sunk their teeth into this dark adventure.”
Publisher Focus Home Entertainment provided more detail about the new game modes: “As well as bringing a host of optimization tweaks, the upcoming update will introduce a ‘Story’ mode that de-emphasizes combat and a cranked-up, more challenging Hard mode. The Story mode places a greater focus on narrative, allowing players to experience Dr. Reid’s journey with less challenging combat. 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.”
In addition, Focus Home Interactive has announced that it is currently running a 25 per cent discount on purchases of the game on PlayStation 4 and PC. It is unclear how long that discount will last. For all the latest Vampyr news, keep an eye on its website.
