Switch owners will soon have the chance to walk the streets of London in the tortured shoes of Dr. Jonathan Reid. As a doctor and newly-minted vampire, Dr. Reid has a very tough road ahead of him. On the one hand, he’s a man who’s sworn to break the Spanish Flu’s grip on London and save as many patients as he can in the process. On the other hand though, he now has this…thirst for blood. It’s a fine line to walk, and who knows if the good doctor is actually up for the challenge.
While not a perfect game, Vampyr still poses players with impactful choices and varied character building options. Indeed, defining Dr. Reid’s character is just as important as guiding his growth as a vampire, perhaps even more so.
Vampyr launches for Nintendo Switch on October 29 and is already available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
