Dontnod Entertainment’s action RPG Vampyr is set to receive a big update this summer, which will bring two new difficulty modes to the game. The developer and publisher Focus Home Interactive made the announcement today, revealing that they hope the new modes will add more replayability to the game.
The following is a breakdown of the update (via Gematsu):
“This will include two new game difficulty 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 ‘Story’ mode that de-emphasizes combat and a cranked-up, more challenging Hard mode. The Story mode places a greater focus on narrative, allowing players to experience Dr. Reid’s journey with less challenging combat. 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.”
Vampyr is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game received mostly positive reviews when it launched earlier this year, with the story being praised and the combat being criticized.
