Experience The Incredible Action RPG Adventures of Van Helsing on PC and XBLA

IncredibleAdventuresOfVanHelsing

Van Helsing, the legendary vampire hunter from Bram Stoker’s Dracula, has retired, and now his son, also Van Helsing, has taken up the mantle of world’s greatest (and most charming) monster slayer and rescuer of damsels in distress. Thus the stage is set for The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, a new real-time action RPG coming to PC and Xbox Live Arcade sometime during 2012’s fourth quarter from independent developer NeocoreGames.

“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 Juhász, 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.”

In The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, young Van Helsing, Jr. will embark on a quest to the Eastern European land of Borgovia to hunt down the supernatural beasts threatening the city. Taking place in a fantastical 19th century world of monsters, magic, science, and technology, the game will be presented in a gothic-noir style and put an anachronistic twist on the classic tale, with plenty of witty dialogue and dark humor to spare.

Expect to hear more about this one during E3 next month. Follow the game on Facebook and Twitter for updates.
