The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing trilogy has gathered quite the following on PC, and seeing as the very first game of the trilogy was available on Games With Gold a few months back, it may interest you to know that, thanks to Neocore games, the second instalment in the series has launched on Xbox One.
Following on from the first game, Van Helsing players will be able to import their level 30 characters rather than beginning fresh, and they’ve made tweaks to the game in the form of expanded skill trees and improved multiplayer. A full list of features is laid out below:
A New Adventure – The incredible adventures continue, and Van Helsing, the famous monster-hunter returns to save the day again with his witty companion, Katarina.
New Skills, Tricks and Auras – Twice as many skills and brand new tricks and auras will help you fight this epic battle against a mysterious enemy.
Transferable Characters – You can choose from three very different classes and thanks to their expanded skill-trees they are easily customizable to fit any play-styles. You can also transfer your level 30 charaters from Van Helsing I!
Insane Multiplayer – You and your friends can test your skills against each other via the PVP mode or join forces and complete the story in the co-operative campaign up to four players.
Reworked Tower-defense mini-game – With enemies invading in waves, you have the opportunity to defend your Lair and other strategic locations with deployable traps and several upgradable functions to ward off evil, now with improved gameplay mechanics and up to 7 levels, presented as optional side quests.
Improved Scenario Mode – Once you’ve completed the main campaign, the scenario levels become available to you. These very diverse missions are designed to provide you with additional challenge and of course: awesome loot!
Resistance Management – In this brand new feature you can truly become the leader of the Resistance, send your captains to various missions and help the cause.
So if you’re fan of the first game, or diablo-esque loot driven experiences, check out the launch trailer after the break. The game is available now on the store for £11.99 with two additional DLC packs at £0.79p each and another DLC, Ink Hunt, launching in August. We also wouldn’t be surprised if the third game made its way onto Xbox One also.
