The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing originally released on PC in May of 2013, and now nearly four years later the definitive version of the game is coming to consoles. The Extended Edition of the action-RPG will include all of the DLC that has been released for the game (which means there are three playable characters from the start), and will arrive on PlayStation 4 on March 1. Developer NeocoreGames wants this to be the start of a series, and have optimized the PS4 title for remote play.
Here’s how NeocoreGames’ Community Manager Balázs Farkas described the PlayStation 4 title on the PlayStation Blog:
This is an intense action-RPG with a fast-paced combat, bordering on gruesome yet hilarious: the worldbuilding creates a dark and foreboding setting while the dialogue is light. There are tons of Easter eggs and pop-cultural references making fun even of the game’s own genre tropes, but never in a way that it undermines the arc of the story and the characters.
You’ll explore the dangers of the wilderness and the city while fighting numerous monsters inspired by classic and modern weird fiction, a blend of Steampunk, Gothic and Noir. You’ll be collecting better and better equipment, managing your hideout, and you must eventually confront the (Probably) Most Esteemed Mad Scientist of the Borgovian Royal Society, Professor Fulmigati himself – all this you can do alone or playing with your friends!
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Extended Edition releases March 1 for PlayStation 4, includes content previously released as DLC, and offers PS4 Pro improvements.
