This Is How Long It Takes To Beat Vampyr

"Vampyr" is an intriguing title for gamers who enjoy the darker side of things coupled with character-driven gameplay. Though it's not as big of a vampire RPG as "Code Vein," it's definitely worth checking out. Before you decide whether or not the blood-sucking adventure that is "Vampyr" is for you, learn how long it takes to complete.


Though it's not the longest game of all time, "Vampyr" boasts strong reviews. SVG included it in a list of the best RPGs of 2018 thanks to its compelling psychological elements that make it a smooth fusion of brains and brawn. Through the main character, Jonathan Reid, a former doctor turned vampire in World War I London, players have to make tough calls on whether to let their bloodlust overtake them (via Vice). 

IGN found "Vampyr" refreshing given its novel take on traditional vampire mythology, and the outlet's review gave the game a strong 7/10. Polygon praised the game for its complexity and in-depth story, even though it has its unpolished aspects as well.
