The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2, NeocoreGames' action adventure title, adds multiple character classes to its previously unchangeable system, a representative told us at PAX Prime 2013.
Van Helsing 2 is a direct sequel to The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, which was released earlier this year. Players take control of the legendary monster hunter as they fend off beasts with the help of a ghostly companion, Lady Katarina. The game will include the Hunter class — the sword and pistol-heavy skills players of the first game are familiar with — as well as the Thaumaturge or Arcane Mechanic class.
The Thaumaturge is the game's mage-like class and gives players the power of destructive spells. The Arcane Mechanic is built around more technical abilities. In addition to flamethrowers, bombs and artillery, the class can also summon mechanical spiders.
Van Helsing 2 will also feature class-based loot for players to pick up. Although a few items will be available cross-class, some weapons and armor will only work with specific character types.
Van Helsing 2 was announced in July. The game is being developed for Windows PC.
