Blood drive.

Vampyr, the next game from Life is Strange studio Dontnod finally has a release date. The studio confirmed that the game will come out on June 5 for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.

Players will take control of Dr. Jonathan Reid, whose not only a doctor but a former soldier. But not only just a soldier-doctor but also a vampire. Crazy huh?

The game takes place in 1918 London as players will interact with ordinary people as well as inhabitants of London's underground occult scene. Players will be able to determine Reid's morality as he can either choose to save humans, or leave them at the mercy of the forces of darkness.

Dontnod has been releasing a series of video diaries that cover the development of Vampyr. You can check out the latest episode which shows off more of the game's gameplay and world. The rest of the "Stories from the Dark" series covers some of the game's influences, and teases what fans can expect from the Life is Strange follow-up.
