Frequently Asked Questions

What is the story in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing about?

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is a real-time Action RPG created by NeocoreGames, coming for PC, Mac and XBLA. The game is set in Borgovia, a dark kingdom where you can meet mythical monsters and scientific creatures. You play young Van Helsing, son of the world-famous monster hunter. His follower, Lady Katarina, is the ghost of a witty and beautiful damsel, who is a great help for our hero and also his biggest critic at the same time.

What does Van Helsing bring to the genre that no one else has?

#1) The setting and the world are very special: the city of Borgova is like a metropolis taken from a gothic-noir tale with dark, scary, imposing buildings and various locations resembling a 19th century European city, with vampires, werewolves and scientific creatures.

#2) We put more emphasis on the story and the characters. The sarcastic, wry humor is an important feature in the game, just like the snappy dialogues between Van Helsing and his pretty follower, Lady Katarina. They both have strong characteristics, which affect all their actions and decisions.

#3) You can tailor your skills on the spot with the game’s unique PowerUp System: all active skills have 3 modifiers, called PowerUps. They are activated (charged) from Rage points that you gain as you kill your enemies, then you can boost your active skills in many different ways by combining these PowerUps.

#4) You have the freedom to customize your character through a very detailed level up system. You can pick skills, spells, tricks and auras from three unique skilltrees. Additionally you can choose passive bonuses from the Perks as you gain reputation.

#5) Tactics are also important because of the diversity of the enemies and their special abilities. Some of them have strong armour or different types of elemental resistance, others are small but fast and they attack our young hero in hordes.

#6) If you like exploring secret places and diving deep into the story beyond the main quest line, you will find plenty of hidden content, like special enemies, secret levels, unique equipment and several sidequests. These will grant you an even more exciting gameplay experience and additional gaming hours.

How do Rage and PowerUps work?

You gain Rage by killing the vicious beasts in Borgovia.

All your active skills have 3 PowerUps just like these four. Channel your Rage once into all three to combine their effects, or just into one single PowerUp, making that particular bonus three times stronger. Or use any other combination of the three PowerUps to make your skill more suited to the given situation.

Let’s see what you can do with your basic Shoot skill for example:

PowerUp 1: Explosive Round
Exploding bullets hit the enemies within a 1.5 meter area of the target

PowerUp 2: Tar Shot
Slows down the target by 75% for 2 seconds

PowerUp 3: Dum-Dum Round
+50% Damage

Charging all PowerUps just once will give you all three benefits for your next attack. But, if you’re facing a single boss, you don’t need to hit a bigger area, right? So, if your attacker is very fast, you should rather try to escape and shoot it from afar, so channel your Rage into PowerUp 2 all three times, and it will slow your target down for 6 seconds. Or if it’s not too fast but has an awful lot of Health, then charging PowerUp 3 all three times will add +150% Damage to your next attack.

Using PowerUps can also replenish your resources. The Explosive Shot skill, for example, has a PowerUp that steals Mana from your target, the more Rage you channel into it, the more Mana you’ll receive for killing your enemies.
