Vampyr Update Adds New Difficulty Modes on All Platforms

Dontnod Entertainment announced that their narrative-driven action-RPG Vampyr will receive an additional update for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 26.

The update adds two new difficulty modes to the game to entice fans to return to the game and test their skills and also give new players more content.

The first mode is simply called Story Mode, which is where combat is completely taken out of the game and the focus is put on the game’s narrative. This will make Dr. Jonathan Reid’s journey much less challenging and will definitely satisfy the more casual gamer.

Alternatively, the game will also have Hard Mode which makes the combat more difficult and rewards less experience from killing enemies. This makes the player rely more on embracing citizens to power them up.

Both of these modes and Normal Mode are available when starting a new game.

Additionally, the developers have also introduced new optimization to the game with various bug fixes. Most of these updates are for nerdy PC players who can read all the patch notes at the game’s official website.

Vampyr is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

You can check out the game’s launch trailer below:


Author’s take: I’m glad to see Vampyr in the headlines again. I feel like I was hearing about it for so long and then it released and then no one spoke about. I should really get around to playing it, I enjoy Dontnod’s other works.
