'The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing' (ALL) Unveils New Protagonist

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is an action RPG filled with fierce and demonic battles, memorable characters, and a refreshingly unique story that brings the legendary vampire slayer to modern audiences.
Set in a gothic-noir universe resembling a fantastical 19th century Europe filled with monsters, magic, and weird technology, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing will follow the son of the famed hunter, known in-game as Van Helsing, in a tale wrought with wry humor and snappy dialogue. Van Helsing, a larger-than-life hero possessing a dark yet romantic charm, will follow his path to the dismal land of Borgovia where former supernatural foes have enlisted his help to defeat a new scourge terrorizing the ravaged Eastern European city. With an assortment of extraordinary characters, an engrossing storyline, and a beautifully dark and gothic art style, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing looks to bring RPG enthusiasts an anachronistic adventure like no other.

After the long debates surrounding the cameo appearance of young Van Helsing in the teaser video earlier this year, it seems that he will fade back into darkness after all of his struggles to become famous, being too young for this dangerous adventure. As he has to leave the story so early, NeocoreGames decided to call all available Van Helsings to a huge audition to find the protagonist they really need. They've already come to the final round: three tough heroes are left…

A few weeks ago Neocore asked its fans to help the developers with finding the best Van Helsing. You could vote for which three tough but totally different heroes: The Mysterious Stranger, The Chevalier and The Veteran.

All of them were very determined but The Mysterious Stranger won out in the end with 72% of the total number of votes!

This mysterious stranger will save you in a heartbeat from the various creatures of the night, leaving with only a snappy one-liner. He is the son of the legendary monster hunter Abraham Van Helsing, and although he might be young, he is far from inexperienced. But fate has different plans for him than for his father. To defeat the new threat, he has to side with the ancient monsters of Borgovia and reconsider everything he learned to believe…
