Epic Games Store Holiday Sale 2021: Vampyr is the Free Game Available Today

Vampyr is today's Mystery Game.


The Epic Games Store Mystery Game for today is Vampyr, a really fun action RPG title by Donton Entertainment. The game puts players in control of Jonathan Reid, a doctor recently bitten by a vampire, climbing up the social ranks and trying to find a balance between his new bloodlust and his duties as a doctor.

Vampyr might be a little rough around the edges but it is, at its core, an extremely fun game that emphasises player agency by giving the player plenty of freedom of choice. The game’s combat is also fairly competent, but some elements might prove cumbersome to some players. The quazi-open-world of Vampyr allows plenty of opportunity for exploration as well as plenty of ways to tackle objectives within levels.
