Tropico developer’s next game is Diablo-esque Victor Vran
Tropico and Omerta developer Haemimont is turning its attention to dungeon crawling for its next project.
The new project is called Victor Vran, presumably the name of the dude in the hat. Haemimont CEO Gabriel Dobrev told Joystiq the ARPG is expected in early 2014. Platforms were not announced, but presumably PC at the very least, given Haemimont’s history.
Victor Vran isn’t a straight ttake on the Diablo genre; it includes platform elements such as wall jumping.
Victor can use scythes, guns and “lightning guns”, among other weapons. Although all players will be cast as Victor, multiplayer is possible thanks to character reskins.
Dobrev said Victor Vran is a “pet project” of Haemimont’s which it has ben working on independently around the Tropico series for two years.
