Game development studio Neocore Games released the first sneak peek gameplay trailer for their upcoming title The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III. In a recent press release, the company also proclaimed their intention of “putting a bloody stake in 2015 with the announcement that The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III is officially coming to Steam this May.”
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III and the former titles are real-time action RPG’s inspired by Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Monsters, magic, and strange steam-powered technology are all a reality within the game’s universe. Players select from a number of unique character classes to battle the dark forces that encroach upon the gothic city of Borgovia.
Neocore has stated that this will be the final installment of their Van Helsing series, and that the game will feature 6 new classes, plenty of new enemies, four-player online co-op, and eight-player co-op PvP. The single-player campaign will feature a story that delves into the past of the character Lady Katarina, with gamers also finding that a former ally has turned arch-villain.
The sneak peek trailer shows off in-game footage of 2 of the new character classes: The heavy-weapon wielding Phlogistoneer and the spell-casting Umbralist. The Phlogistoneer utilizes an arsenal of explosive weaponry for offense in conjunction with the defensive boosts of his mechanized exoskeleton. The Umbralist relies on stealth and burst damage in order to dismantle enemies quickly and quietly.
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III will be available for PC and Mac through Steam. Make sure to visit the Neocore Games official website and YouTube channel to stay updated on future announcements and videos.
