The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2 isn’t just more of the same; Neocore Games has upped the level cap, added three specialisation trees and put players in command of resistance forces.


The video below runs through the new additions, but here’s a short text rundown of some highlights, too:

  • Resistance Management: As their commander, you can give orders to three Resistance captains and send them on various missions. As they progress with their quests, they gather experience and collect loot.
  • The Chimera: The Chimera is a powerful beast from the Ink that you can summon in dire situations or send the beast on hunting trips to collect valuable treasure, but beware: you should never let it get hungry.
  • Extended Journal: A hunter with so many assignments needs a journal to keep track of his quests, allies and the beasts he has already defeated once.
  • Trophy Hall: Any self-respecting hunter enjoys the sight of his hard-earned trophies. They also grant you unique bonuses – but remember: each trophy gives some advantage to your enemies as well.
  • Improved Tower Defense: You can easily build various traps with devious upgrades that will defend your Lair against hordes of enemies on seven different Tower-defense maps.
  • Runecrafting System: It’s time to spice up your arcane knowledge with Runecrafting, which allows you to enhance or build powerful new equipment.
  • Improved Enchanting: Enchanting has become even more powerful with tons of new options to customize your enchantments and the appearance of your items.
