Focus Interactive has confirmed Vampyr's afore-promised patch to "de-emphasise" combat in the vampire action-RPG will release later this week on 26th September 2018.
"Story Mode de-emphasizes combat, placing a greater focus on narrative so players can enjoy Dr. Jonathan Reid's journey with less challenging gameplay," states an update on Steam.
"On the other end of the scale, Hard Mode makes combat much more difficult. Players will receive less experience from killing enemies too, forcing them to rely even more on embracing citizens to grow in power. Upon starting a new game, players will be given the option to choose from these two new modes or a third 'Normal Mode' if they wish to play the original Vampyr experience."
If you enjoy Vampyr‘s bark but not its neckbite, then your story-drinking needs may be met by an upcoming ‘Story mode’ which tones down the combat. Or if you’ve mastered the murder murder murder kill kill kill of Dontnod’s vampiric RPG and want more of a challenge, a ‘Hard mode’ will have your back. And probably put a knife in it. These two will arrive in an update later this summer, publishers Focus Home announced today. Before all that, a patch hit yesterday with performance optimisations and target lock-on changes, and the game has a wee discount for the next few days.
