The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is a new RPG Hack-and-Slash game set in the style of Diablo.
The Gameplay of “The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing”
This game focuses on three active skill modifiers. These power-ups use rage to have different effects. You may kill some enemies instantly or get an area of effect charge. The most accurate analogue to this was the charge gauge in Torchlight 2. There will obviously be some unkind comparisons between the two games. So the developers will have to address this and discuss what sets Van Helsing apart. We hope to follow them as they do.
The Depth of the System
Each ability has multiple sub-abilities that use your rage. It looks like this will lead to quite a few interesting ways to use skills. From early shots it looks like each skill will also have at least 3 other skills. This is a good start on having a flexible and unique system. Other games that used this did not have sub-tiers but instead had multiple skills changed by different amounts.
The Flavor of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing
The main way this game sets itself apart is atmosphere. The game is influenced by creatures from Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Everything you fight will be a traditional monster in the original sense. If you like the flavor of this setting then this game is definitely for you.
