Vampyr Patch Fixes a Few Pains in the Neck

By Sam Quirke, 1 month ago
Vampyr has been out for about a month, which means its time for some quality-of-life improvements and bug fixes. The development team have launched their first update to all versions of the game. The priority appears to have been fixing NPC positioning and appearances where they have been known to misbehave, but the team have also plugged the hole in Southwark that allowed you to escape the map.

Here are the full notes:

New Features
  • The Recovering Icon is now properly displayed when a citizen is healing

  • Fixed an issue where Tom Watts’s sidequest would be blocked while performing a medical checkup mid-choice
