Slated for release later this year, Focus Home Interactive has unleashed a new E3 trailer for its upcoming video game title Vampyr.

The three-minute cinematic trailer is one long, continuous shot that takes you through the streets of London post-World War I (in 1918) as it focuses on the game’s main character and titular vampyr: Dr. Jonathan Reid, a famous surgeon back from the Great War a changed man. Like, really, really changed.

There’s sadly no in-game footage in the trailer below, but what I’m seeing is enough to whet my appetite for the bloodsucking video game! To be released on XBox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, Vampyr will arrive on store shelves in November, and you can go ahead and pre-order your copy. Here’s the official press release:

Fly through the streets as imagined by DONTNOD Entertainment in the bumper E3 trailer for their upcoming narrative-driven action-RPG Vampyr. Witness deep into the heart of a flu-stricken London, where secret societies operate in the shadows.

Accompanied by the rock song “Devil” by DA MARIA, set out on an exciting journey with an uncut sequence shot throughout the city’s dark alleys, deadly underground passages, and corrupt neighborhoods; and get a first glimpse at The Ascalon Club, a society formed from the richest vampires, unbeknownst to the mortals.

You are Dr. Jonathan Reid, a famous surgeon home from the Great War and recently turned into a vampire against your own will. As a doctor, you have taken an oath to save lives and take care of the sick. As a vampire, you are cursed to hunt those you vowed to heal.

To survive against deadly foes roaming the streets – vampire hunters, undead Skal, and other monstrosities – you will need to choose which civilians to feed on, so you can grow stronger and evolve your vampiric abilities. Use your unholy powers to manipulate and delve into the lives of those around you – but be prepared to live with the consequences of your actions. A web of interconnected citizens with unique lives and relationships react to your decisions, and killing just one may cause the downfall of an entire city district. Your actions will save or doom London.

Sink your teeth into the glorious cinematic trailer below, and let us know if Vampyr will be a must-buy for you!
