Vampyr follows the player in the role of a newly-turned vampire named Dr. Jonathan Reid in London, 1918. As the synopsis reads, “As a doctor, you must find a cure to save the city’s flu-ravaged citizens. As a Vampyr, you are cursed to feed on those you vowed to heal. Will you embrace the monster within? Your actions will save or doom London.”

Other titles that have been up for grabs include Remnant: From the Ashes, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Loop Hero, Second Extinction, Shenmue 3, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, and Neon Abyss.
