Vampyr story trailer features creepy cover of ‘Don’t Fear the Reaper’

Dontnod Entertainment, the studio behind Life Is Strange, is busy working on the action-RPG, Vampyr, for Focus Home Interactive. A new story trailer has been released, and it shows our protagonist, Dr. Jonathan Reid, struggling with becoming a vampire. And with it comes a very creepy cover of Blue Oyster Cult’s “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” by Phlotilla and Mona Najib. (Yes, I’ve been recently enjoying the song thanks to the Supernatural episode featuring a reaper.)

Check out the Vampyr story trailer below:

Synopsis: In Vampyr, you play as Jonathan Reid, a doctor in 1918 London newly-turned into a vampire following his return from the Great War. His convictions blown away, Reid discovers the existence of a dark new world were supernatural creatures and secret societies live together in the shadows… and he is now part of this world.

As a newborn vampire shattered by an irrepressible thirst of blood and thrust into a strange new world, Reid attempts to interpret the supernatural in the best way he knows how: rational thinking. However, between ancient societies, mysterious murders and an imminent large-scale vampire hunt, his scientific assurances are challenged like never before. Driven by a personal desire to learn who caused his transformation and why, Jonathan Reid continues working to find a cure to the devastating disease that decimates its citizens.

But doing so, he must confront his nature as a blood-drinker and the terrible temptation to feed on those he swore to protect…

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