This is where the action really is -- power up Jonathan E. Reid (the game protagonist, main character) by killing someone and sucking dry its blood. This is how the upcoming video game from game developer Dontnod Entertainment would look like. But hey, it's called Vampyr so it should be like this, right?

Power Up By Sucking Blood

During a recent interview with Windows Central, art director Gregory Szucs explained that for Jonathan to become really fast and very strong, he must need to kill somebody -- anyone for that matter, even someone whom he passes thru the streets -- and drink their blood. But that's just one option.

But as a vampire, you should and you must suck blood to stay in good shape, why? It's not that you're just going to drink blood all throughout the game.

So what can you do once you had Jonathan to suck from his victim? As Szucs revealed, "Blood will also boost your natural abilities, you can have blood rage, grow blood claws. You can play with people, create decoys. There is a lot of stuff you can do."

As Szucs almost revealed, as Jonathan, you will not only fight human vampire hunters. Yet before he revealed most of the game's hidden secrets, Szucs stopped. But then, we already knew there's a bigger.

Much kind of like the Underworld series, it is possible there will be times when you must fight your own kind, perhaps Lycans and werewolves or even the mysterious hybrids. Anything's possible in the world of games.

Want to Add Difficulty, Don't Suck Blood

But if you want even more challenge round after round, Szucs suggested the option of just like that of Edward Cullen on the Twilight series, a vegetarian vampire whose lust of blood can be suppressed thru sheer will. Yes, as Szucs revealed, you can roam around Vampyr without getting someone killed.

So blood is like Jonathan's version of power up, a skill upgrade. Without blood, Jonathan can go on fighting using his basic abilities and strength. This is like adding difficulties to the game which is already difficult.
