Have you ever wondered how awesome it would be to take out your enemies with a wide range of destructive spells... as the great monsters hunter Van Helsing? You asked for it and we decided to make your wishes come true! In the new Van Helsing: Thaumaturge DLC you can play the Thaumaturge (try saying that fast three times in a row), a brand new class for our game.
But what exactly is the Thaumaturge? He is a rare type of hunter, specialising in the magical arts, with some stunning arcane abilities. You'll be able to stab your foes with ice shards, force them into a fire ring (or a square, triangle, or whatever shape you can imagine for your firewall) and once they’re nicely rounded up, blind them, boil their blood and hurl thunderbolts into their faces. It sounds like fun, doesn't it? Then recharge your Mana and jump into the battle next week when the new DLC comes out on Steam!
Can't wait until the 26th? Take a look at the DLC's beta in action during our LIVE Gameplay on Twitch, 11am PDT/ 8pm CET.
