Neocore have announced The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut, which will be stylishly sauntering your way in September.
Van Helsing: Final Cut is a standalone game combining all three of the previous Van Helsing games. Or, sorry; it “combines campaign content from all three games with modified or added content.” It’s got a reworked and extended skill tree system, it lets you choose from six classes at the beginning, it contains “all the tower defense game modes, all made optional yet highly rewarding”, and it has a level cap of 80 for the campaign and 100 for the other game modes.
Those other game modes sound kind of interesting. You can create a new character or get a level 80 from the beginning, and you can then play one of 20 scenario maps that “randomly assemble terrain, monsters, objectives, and conditions”, as well as have a go at daily quests and challenges, weekly events, multiplayer modes (ranging from four-player co-op to Touchdown, Arena, and a Battle Royale), and eventually reach level 100… and then continue to evolve through an endgame Glory system, rare items, and Dreamshards.
Best of all? It’s totally free if you already own the three previous Van Helsing games. If you don’t then it’ll cost $44.99, which… actually isn’t that bad either, thinking about it. I don’t know whether or not it’ll be discounted if you own only one or two of the previous games; I’d sort of guess that it wouldn’t be, but that you could simply buy the missing games to get access to it? Not sure.
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut is due out in September. You can see some screenshots below, although I have no idea if they’re really showing anything particularly new.
