The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing released today for Xbox One, making its way across from Steam. What’s more, it is free as part of Xbox Games with Gold for the month of November! You might not know much about it, so here’s a heads up for anyone showing some form of curiosity!
“Put on your wide-brimmed hat, grab your weapons and embark on an incredible adventure in the gothic-noir world of Borgovia, where mad science threatens the fragile peace between monster and mortal. Be Van Helsing and save the day with your beautiful companion, Lady Katarina, the charming ghost. Explore the savage wilderness in the mountains and the soot-stained brick districts of a grim metropolis twisted with weird science. For the very first time you can do all that on Xbox One as well!”
Ok, so this has piqued your interest, but what is the game like and what are its features? Well, for a start, it’s similar to the likes of Diablo, in that it’s an Action RPG. Level up, power up and unlock new abilities as you go. The game features:
An incredible adventure – Play through a refreshingly unique story, spiced up with wry humor and snappy dialogue.
New interface and controls – Completely overhauled controls and user interface, made especially for Xbox One.
Detailed level-up system – Customize your character through a varied level-up system and decide which skills and abilities you’ll need for the hunt.
Multiplayer – You can team up with your friends in a four-player cooperative mode and become the greatest monster hunter of all time in our competitive multiplayer mode.
Tower-defense mini-game – Build and develop your hideout and place traps to defend it from waves of terrible monsters.
Rage system – Modify your skills on the spot with a unique power-up system.
Unique companion system – Use the special abilities and tailor the skills of your remarkable follower, Lady Katarina.
“We’ve been working very hard to bring The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing to the Xbox One. We are delighted to introduce our Action-RPG to a brand new audience and we hope that they are going to have as much fun with playing the game as we had creating it,” said Zoltán Pozsonyi, Producer at NeocoreGames.
What’s more, from December 1st all The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing DLCs are also available on Xbox One for €3,99 each. Both Thaumaturge and Arcane Mechanic add loads of new content to the base game, including gear, weapons, skills and story missions. Can’t argue with those prices, considering the base game cost you nothing (RRP $14.99)!
