The Dynasty series has had a number of titles over the years, from Sengoku Dynasty to Wild West Dynasty to Medieval Dynasty. Each game in the franchise has always used historical references, but those are being left behind in Vampire Dynasty. Announced today, Vampire Dynasty has players taking on the role of a survivor of a vampire attack and blends open world exploration, fantasy action horror, and a branching story. Developed by a team that’s new to the franchise, the game is set to be released in 2024.

Set against the backdrop of the fictitious Balkan area of Sangavia, players find themselves with newfound abilities after surviving a vampire attack. And vampires are at the top of the food chain. Play alone or with up to three other players to explore the rich world, uncover its secrets, fight vampire hunters, and build a keep as a testament to your eternal reign.

After constructing a towering castle above your new realm, uncover the secrets laying beneath its hill. That discovery will give you near absolute and corrupting power over human subjects. If I had a good evil laugh, I’d be doing it right now. Vampire Dynasty features branching dialogue and game-altering decisions with multiple endings.

“We are excited to escort the Dynasty series on a dark and sinister path,” says Michał Ciastoń, CEO of developer Mehuman Games and Lead Designer on Vampire Dynasty, via a press release. “We embrace the challenge to deliver a gaming experience that both veteran Dynasty players as well as fans of dark fantasy and horror games can equally enjoy. We have always been fans of both the occult and sinister as well as sandbox games. We cannot wait to show you more of what we achieved by merging both of these worlds.”

Matthias Wünsche, CEO of publisher Toplitz Productions, adds, “When it comes to the Dynasty franchise, we are always exploring new concepts and settings. The incredibly talented team at Mehuman Games has put their heart, their soul and a lot of blood into Vampire Dynasty to raise the bar of what is possible with the signature genre-mixing formula. Yet they stay true to the roots of what encapsulates the beloved gaming experience expected by Dynasty fans around the world.”

Developed by Mehuman Games and published by Toplitz Productions, Vampire Dynasty will be released in Early Access for PC via Steam in 2024.

She has has developed a great love of life sims and FMV titles. For her, accessibility is one of the most important parts of any game (but she also really appreciates good UI).
