    Initially slated for a 2017 release, the latest title from DontNod (Remember Me, Life Is Strange) experienced some delays and the game's release was pushed to an uncertain date, until today...

    For a month, a four-part mini webseries was periodically released with the latest installment hitting YouTube today with a release date:

    That's right, June 5 is the date.

    In Episode IV: Stories from the Dark, DONTNOD explain what makes videogames unique compared to other storytelling mediums, as well as their signature approach to narrative. As Narrative Director Stéphane Beauverger explains, the player is often occupied with Vampyr's intricate gameplay systems. Because of this, the exploration, investigations, citizen encounters, combat and hard-hitting choices are all fundamentally intertwined with the game's narrative. Game Director Philippe Moreau elaborates, saying that the relationship between a player and their character, as well as the direct feeling of control, is unique to games and something he has worked to make special in Vampyr.

    In doing so, DONTNOD liken it to theatre, creating a close relationship between actor and spectator that’s more effective and powerful than any film or TV show. Total immersion is the goal, and this episode also highlights how the studio has used motion capture to make the cast of Vampyr that much more human. Subtleties of facial animation can be recreated and combined with the fantastic music, characters, and creatures of the game to produce a living, breathing 1918 London. It’s then up to you who survives it.

    Vampyr releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this June 5th.

    This looks really cool. I liked their Sherlock games so hopefully this is as good or better.
