We’re big fans of monster hunters around here. Kill those vile vampires we say. Kill those disgusting werewolves too while you’re at it. And those silly little fey creatures of lore… destroy them all. That will just leave the superior race of Zombies of course. You won’t take us down.
Not that anyone seems to have told Van Helsing. He is still determined to wipe everything not human (or cuddly) from the face of the planet. And independent developer NeocoreGames is only to happy to give you a vehicle to carry out you monster-genocide fantasies.
We admit to knowing pretty much nothing about the game up until very recently. We were aware of the name… and that’s about it. Now we are pretty aware of it, and for the we-want-Diablo-on-the-console part of us, the game represents an opportunity to do just that… while wiping out the vampires. At. Bloody. Last.
So, if you’re a little blood thirsty like us, have a look at the assets and information about the action RPG coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade and PC.
Independent developer NeocoreGames presents a terrifying new gameplay trailer for The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, sending the fabled monster-hunter out of the metropolis and into the gothic wilderness. High up in the Borgovian mountains, among the colossal trees and in the deep valleys, where ancient idols guard the swamps and the village inhabitants barricade their doors at night, a new evil makes even the ancient monsters tremble with fear.
Watch the new gameplay video and see how Van Helsing makes good use of his mighty sword, deadly pistol, and his arcane tricks, while he battles both the menacing creatures of folk tales and the monsters born in the secret laboratories of the mad scientists.
