The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing Continue on April 17th, Beta Access Available Now With Pre-Order


Part two of Neocore Games’ The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing trilogy is officially slated to debut April 17th on Steam for PC and Mac. With a launch date set, pre-orders are now being accepted, giving early adopters the chance to pledge support for the game and in return receive exclusive rewards.

Six bonus packs are available as part of the game’s tiered pre-order campaign, starting as low as $14.99 all the way up to a cool grand (that’s $1,000 for those of you who may not be up on your money slang). Regardless of how much you choose to pledge, every pre-order pack includes a key for instant access to the closed beta via Steam. Choose your pre-order pack today at

Based on stats alone, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II promises to be bigger and badder than the original in every way imaginable. You can look forward to three character classes (up from one), a level cap of 60 (up from 30), dynamic weather effects, a more complex story loaded with humor and Easter Eggs, hundreds of new weapon models, items, power-ups and skills, a new runecrafting system and, well, you get the picture.

I didn’t get a chance to play the trilogy’s opening act at release last May (my old PC sucked, but now I have a new, better one!), but Neocore was kind enough to hook me up with a copy of the original and a beta key for part two. I do love me some action RPGs so I’m eager to see what I’ve been missing out on over the past year.

Watch for more The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing coverage leading up to next month’s sequel launch as I play catch up. Now I will take my leave and let you enjoy the new trailer and screenshots for The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II!
