    i played the vanhelsing movie game back on original xbox and it was alot like devil may cry which made it fucken awesome , why the change to rpg? the only problem with the first was that it could be beaten in 30 minuts.

    • Linda Neocore says:

      The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is not related to the movie. It is loosely based on Bram Stoker's Dracula but it rather has a unique story.

  2. Rick Blair says:

    What platforms is this coming out for?

  3. Delia says:

    How long will the game be in terms of hours ?

    • Linda Neocore says:

      The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing will have about 8-10 hours of gameplay. But don't forget that it's the first part of a trilogy!

      I can't tell you the exact number of the available levels in the game, yet. Our level up system is more complicated than the traditional one. One of our designers will post a detailed explanation here on the devblog soon.

  4. Delia says:

    Oh and what will the maximum level be ? :P

  5. Curious Person says:

    Will the game have any modding tools , or will it be moddable ?

  6. GreyWolfSif says:

  8. CurteriusCurious says:

    Half of NEXT YEAR! Man I can't wait that dang-on long! This game so better be Radical which I know it will. I have Van Helsing the movie on VHS I am looking for a DVD copy. The movie is so beast. Like I know once again this game will be. On on the exact note when you same half of next year, do you know the exact-exact date?

  9. LoganX says:

    Will the game be released on Steam for PC?

  10. AmericaNoir says:

    Salute, will test the game bet, if so open or closed.

  11. AmericaNoir says:

    Excuse me, would you have a localization project? I was especially interested in the Russian version) Greetings from Russia)

  12. Yagami-san says:

    The game looks cool especially with the latest trailer. A question though. Will you support single player and offline mode?

  13. Ltlycan says:

    Hey just curious any idea what the requirements would be on pc since it doesnt come out on ps3

  14. Jeremy says:

    Will the other 2 games come out shortly after the first, or will they be split up into yearly releases? 8-10 hours seems a little disappointing. Will you be able to start a new game+ on harder difficulty and continue to progress your existing character? Any word on how much the game will cost? Will it be available on Steam?

    Thanks :) The game looks great. I can't wait to play it!

    • Linda Neocore says:

      Depending on our plans there will be maximum half year between two parts.
      Yes, you can start a new game on harder difficulty with your existing character. The game will cost about 15 EUR and you will find it on Steam and XBLA.

  15. pixi_valentine says:

    Is this a free game or do you have to pay for it?

  16. demonkill12 says:

  17. Michael Leigh says:

    Will this be out on Mac OSX? And will you be distributing it to Steam?

  18. Joshua Elwood says:

    Will the game be available for Mac users at all in the near future.. Or?

    • Linda Neocore says:

      We don't have the exact release date yet but the game will come out in Q2. After its release it will be available for Mac users, too.

  19. WhoDuckDie says:

    Considering how the time span between the parts and the time-span of the play time, is this game a episodic sort of game or more like sequels, such as the Diablo series?

  20. KratosWar says:

    What is the level max the character?

  21. thecrazyluxyman says:

    In what month the game will release??

    • Linda Neocore says:

      We didn't announce the exact release date yet but the game will come out in the first half of this year.

  22. BoneKicker says:

    When the game will release I cant wait :)

  23. Shreazla says:

    So, as there will be an *(eventual)* OSX release for mac, will there be a need for Mac Beta-testers (for OSX specific bugs – Interface/FPS/run-speed issues, etc, and so forth?).

    I realize many times mac-ports are often done as an afterthought – source code taken and compiled into a binary and then released. However, I thought I'd ask anyway, as a dedicated Mac gamer.

    • Linda Neocore says:

      Those who participate in the closed beta are already selected but there will be an open beta, too. We really appreciate any help.

  24. Pablo Honey says:

    Is there true co-operative play? Does it play the storyline or it it more competitive multiplayer? Is there "couch co-op"?

    • Linda Neocore says:

      There isn't "couch co-op" in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. Basically we are working on co-op multiplayer, which plays the storyline not on the competitive mode. Maybe later :)

  27. Jor says:

    Good evening, Linda.

    What are the plans for Van Helsing's brothers(the other playable characters), will they play and look like Helsing(like Castle Crashers) or will they be different and unique(different abilities and such)?

    Thank you.
