Vampyr gets surprise PS5, Xbox Series X | S update during big sale
If you’ve never played vampire before or if you want to replay the game in a different way, now is one of the best times to do so. That’s because Dontnod Entertainment announced this week that vampire surprisingly got an update to run better on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S consoles. Better graphics are the highlight of the update, according to details shared by the developer, and the fix is now ready on all new platforms. On top of that, the game itself is currently on sale with a pretty big discount available on almost every platform the game is playable on.
Dontnod Entertainment and Focus Home Interactive announced plans for the next-gen (or current-gen) update this week on the game’s social accounts. Unlike most games which have performance updates for new consoles are teased before their release, nothing has been said about vampire in advance which made it a surprise for those who own the game.

Like most other upgrades, this one is free if you already have vampire. It also improves the graphics of the PlayStation 4 Pro in addition to the newer consoles. An upgrade trailer and more details on the performance of the various consoles have been shared alongside the update announcement.
“With the free upgrade, gamers will be able to enjoy the game at stunning 60FPS and 1440p on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X,” the creators said. “1440p will also be available on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox Series S.”
If you do not have vampire and are now more interested in trying it out on one of the newer consoles, you’re in luck. This is because the game is on sale in the PlayStation and Xbox markets. It’s available for $ 9.99 in every platform’s store, and if that seems like a low enough price, that’s because it most definitely is. This is a discount of $ 30, considering the typical cost of the game of $ 39.99, which makes it a pretty good deal. The game is also listed for the same price on Steam right now although this version has not received a performance update. The Nintendo Switch version is the only one not on sale.
