NeocoreGames has confirmed that they will be releasing The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, an action role-playing game (RPG) in PAL territories. The upcoming title, loosely based on Bram Stoker’s classic novel Dracula, is being developed for PC and Xbox LIVE Arcade.
Set in a gothic-noir universe resembling a fantastical 19th century Europe filled with monsters, magic, and weird technology, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing will follow the son of the famed hunter, known in-game as Van Helsing. Van Helsing will follow his path to the dismal land of Borgovia where former supernatural foes have enlisted his help to defeat a new scourge terrorizing the ravaged Eastern European city.
Viktor Juhász, lead writer at NeocoreGames commented, “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. 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.”
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is slated for release in late 2012 for PC and Xbox LIVE Arcade. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details about The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing.
