NeocoreGames; those folks that brought you diverse strategy games in the King Arthur universe have branched out to a new fantastical universe; Dracula!
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is a new action RPG full of fierce enemies, demonic battles and unforgettable characters in a unique story that brings the legendary vampire slayer to a modern audience based loosely on Bram Stoker's Dracula.
Set in a gothic-noir universe full of monsters, magic and strange technologies it follows the son of the famed hunter Van Helsing in a game wrought with wry humour and reportedly snappy dialogue.
The game will follow Van Helsing to Borgovia where an evil scourge is terrorising the ravaged Eastern European city, and with an assortment of extraordinary characters, engrossing storyline and a beautifully dark and gothic style, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing will hopefully bring life to this anachronistic adventure.
“Being located in Eastern Europe and having experience developing RPGs, Van Helsing is a natural fit for us; it’s a project where we can demonstrate our expertise in both domains and create something novel that RPG fans can appreciate,” said Viktor JuhÃ¡sz, lead writer at NeocoreGames. “We’ve always enjoyed crafting games from legendary tales, but with our own twist, and Van Helsing provides us the perfect game world to experiment with.”
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is scheduled for a release during Q4 of 2012 for PC and Xbox Live Arcade, we're hoping to give the game a go at E3 this year, so keep your eyes open for a preview, it will be interesting to see where they take the character!
