This is the Prologue of the vampire game Vampyr.
It’s simplistic in nature; you’ll simply begin learning things as you progress through the game. As a side note, I started to point out where to get random items, but decided against it, since this is a semi-open world game that you may explore on your own time.
Getting through the Prologue
You’ve been bit. The world’s a horrible fifty shades of grey. To escape this hellish Twilight of an atmosphere, you stagger forward, following the traces of blood spatter, following the sweet sound of a beating heart.
You approach, sinking your fangs into tender flesh, quenching your thirst, and killing someone near and dear to appease your second life.
You’ve made a terrible mistake.
They’re after you now.
These men and their rifles that spit fire and hatred toward you. You run. It’s the only choice you have. You keep running until you hop down into an alleyway and come across a dead body with a machete sticking out of it. The perfect weapon.
All right, you’ve got a weapon now, so be prepared to attack. There’s not much you can do as far as dodging. If you try it too often, you’ll probably just end up getting hurt. However, you can lock onto targets so they’re in your sights.
Head forward until you enter an area with three enemies. Two are in the background, so kill vamp-hater numero uno first. This is where you learn about the dodge, but it’s still kind of meaningless.
Go through the door.
Only one path to take, so kill the enemy and head through another door into an abandoned house.
Fire and Sun is a collectible on the first floor of the house.
Check out the photograph on the table for a flashback. Then interact with the dead woman on the floor for a memory regarding a watch. Go upstairs and head toward the bed for a flashback and a used revolver. Look on the desk by the bed for Bloody Diary.
Interact with the bed and shoot yourself.
Talk about a dramatic end, right?
Except you’re not dead. Dead, dead, that is.
In your skill tree, you’ll acquire Autophagy. After that, you can choose one Aggressive Skill: Claws, Bloodspear, or Shadow Mist. It doesn’t matter what you choose in the skills tab, as it all depends on the playstyle you’re looking for. I typically choose Claws.
Thus concludes the Prologue of Vampyr.
Here’s some tips
- Dodge won’t help all that much at this point in time, but you can still probably avoid most gunshots with it.
- Don’t forget to lock on your targets. It makes combat a good bit easier.
- Autophagy is a good skill to continuously level up, due to it being able to heal you at the cost of blood.
- As for skills:
- Claws works for close combat, so if you like to get close into the action, here you go.
- Bloodspear isn’t something I’ve tried. You throw the spear through enemies, so it may suit ranged players.
- Shadow Mist can be either close range or distant combat, but note that the enemies can move out of the mist, before it’s leveled properly.
