The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Extended Edition releases on PS4 1st March

Gothic-noir action-RPG comes bundled with two DLC packs and unique features

Greetings to all Hunters out there!

NeocoreGames is proud to announce that next week Van Helsing and his charming – but deadly - ghost companion Lady Katarina will begin their incredible adventures in Borgovia – on the PlayStation 4!

If you’re unfamiliar with our esteemed Van Helsing, don’t worry, we’ll bring you up to speed in no time.

Our protagonist is the son of the legendary monster hunter first introduced to the world in Bram Stoker’s magnificent Gothic novel “Dracula”, although in our alternative, steampunkish 19th-century Europe young Van Helsing grew up to became a monster hunter as well.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing

Times have changed though, and new monstrosities roam the wilderness and the soot-stained city streets – monstrosities created by Weird Science, who are threatening the existence of all the traditional monsters hiding in the ancient, mysterious kingdom of Borgovia on the eastern rim of the continent.

When these desperate creatures decide to ask for help from the son of their old nemesis, it’s up to Van Helsing to stop the madness that Professor Fulmigati brought upon the land.

He looks like a serious fellow, but don’t be alarmed: his unlikely companion, the ethereal Lady Katarina will lighten up the mood with a witty remark or two, not to mention that she can tear apart anyone in her corporeal form, should they interrupt her while she’s busy making sarcastic remarks. Well, that might not lighten up the mood after all, but you get the point.

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.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing

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!

Ever since its conception it has been our dream to make this game a multiplatform title, and what a long journey it was for a small studio like us! We at NeocoreGames are absolutely in love with Sony’s consoles, so we made sure the game makes use of the Dualshock 4 unique features and it’s optimized for PS Vita Remote Play, has a fair Trophy set and offers improvements for the PlayStation 4 Pro as well.

We decided to release the game here with its Extended Edition that includes all DLCs, so PlayStation 4 players will be able to play as all three characters immediately! This is the definitive version of the game, so if you’re a newcomer, this is a nice way to start the series. A series? Yes, this is just the beginning – we’re planning to release the whole trilogy on the PS4 in the future!

So, until next week, prepare yourself for the hunt!

Incredible games they all are but I will wait until the trilogy is complete on PS4. I have them on steam and I can’t afford buying them again full price. But you people like this genre then I guarrante you will love the game and the trilogy as a whole.

It took you some time Neocore but you just started rolling again!!

Looks sweet. Ps4 needs more action rpg’s. any info on the price?

Tried this on pc and love it just wasn’t good at pc games but,now it’s on the ps4 I can’t wait.

It came out in 2013 and has even been free on the Xbox. Really should have been a trilogy pack at the very least.

$14.99USD for those interested. Good price, will be grabbing it

How do you know? But if that is the price i will def pick it up !

The game will launch with its Extended Edition on PS4, so it will be $19.99 (includes two character class DLCs), but will have a 10% discount for PS Plus subscribers at launch.

@fojero – Sorry, looks like that price is wrong, it’s $19.99USD, which is still a steal.

Does Hugh Jackman voice the protaginist?

Pumped about this game! :) Finally a really good action RPG like Diablo for us on PS4.Perhaps we’ll also see a 4k version down the road? :) Anyway, looking forward to mars the 1st!! :)

It has a 4k version on PS4 Pro.

I just bought the game and the other two character types are still locked. When you try to select them it takes you to the playstation store and then says “this content cannot be selected at this time”.

Hey, you should wait for the update to download, it should be available right after you installed the game.
