The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing review: vampire money

While there's plenty of variety in enemies, the same cannot be said for the game's drab setting The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing follows the son of the titular vampire hunter whose name you might recognize from Dracula or the terrible 2004 Hugh Jackman movie. The charismatic lead character is joined by a snarky ghost, Lady Katarina, who leads him to the troubled region of Borgovia, a generically Eastern European kingdom overrun by monsters. Though Van Helsing is primarily known for fighting vampires, the game places him opposite werewolves, mythological beings and mad scientists and more.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing adopts traditional action RPG skill tree

Neocore Games' The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing will have a traditional action role-playing skill tree so players can maximize customization and determine their own play style, according to the developers.

"In Van Helsing, you have the freedom to choose any direction you want on the skill tree," Toth said. "In a game like Diablo 3, you unlocked the skills and you couldn't choose which path to take — you would reach a level and a skill would be unlocked, and you didn't have a choice.

Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing trailer shows skill customization

Slaughtering the forces of evil is angry work, and this new trailer for The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing demonstrates how the titular protagonist can use his rage to great effect in the action RPG's combat. Each of Van Helsing's skills has three different powerups available — his skills can freeze foes, instantly kill some, or hit in a larger area, for instance — and the extent to which his Rage resource powers each of them can be adjusted on the fly. As the trailer shows, players can configure preset Rage configurations for each of Van Helsing's two active skills in order to instantly swap to their preferred combination. The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is in development by Neocore Games for Windows PC, Xbox Live Arcade, and Mac.
