Dontnod has announced that it will be adding a new Story mode and Hard mode in the next Vampyr update. Full details below. The story mode tones down the game’s combat elements allowing players the chance to experience the story more freely, whereas the Hard mode is the polar opposite, making the combat far more challenging.
“Vampyr, DONTNOD Entertainment’s narrative-driven action-RPG set in 1918 London, announces a content update coming later this summer on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This will include two new game modes which add further replayability for existing players and more options for those who haven’t yet sunk their teeth into this dark adventure.
As well as bringing a host of optimization tweaks, the upcoming update will introduce a toned-down ‘Story’ mode that de-emphasizes combat and a cranked-up, more challenging Hard mode. The Story mode makes the game much easier compared to a standard playthrough, allowing players to go through the narrative without worrying about challenging combat. On the other end of the scale, the Hard mode make 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.”
