Neocore Games have announced the second part of The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing series, slated to release later this year. Our floppy-hatted hero will delve back into the gothic-noir steampunk world in search of supernatural prey, with players able to transfer their characters over from the original.
"In the first game it all seemed so simple," says Viktor Juhász, narrative designer at Neocore Games, "defeat the mad scientist, free the land and ride into the sunset, but sometimes the fall of a villain only opens the way to more sinister foes.”
The incredible adventures continue, and Van Helsing, the famous monster-hunter returns to save the day again with the help of his charming, ghostly companion, Lady Katarina. The gothic metropolis of weird science is on the brink of destruction as chaos rules the streets and a new enemy plots revenge. It’s time to enter the dark side of Borgova and the forbidden wilderness, but beware: you are not the only one behind a mask.
We gave the original 8/10 in our The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing review.
"The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing is a blast while it lasts, a rollicking romp with enjoyable combat and solid Diablo-esque mechanics. Genre purists will balk at its 10-12 hour length and lack of endgame, but for a generous £11.99, it's a great start for what could be an outstanding ARPG series."
