'Victor Vran' (ALL) Motörhead: Through The Ages Expansion Details - Screens

Victor Vran brings a fresh perspective to the genre by adding a broad range of equipment and special moves that drastically change combat, along with a simple, but game-changing, jumping mechanic that separates itself from other action-RPGs.

Victor Vran lets the player decide how he or she wants to play the game. Players can forge their own personal version of Victor thanks to a vast array of powerful weapons, game-changing outfits, wicked demon powers and fate cards. Use special moves, combine skills and weapons to wipe out hordes of hideous beasts and clever boss monsters.

Slaying demons doesn’t have to be a lonely affair – team up with friends online and explore the story of the dark world together in a full co-op experience.

Wired Productions confirmed legendary independent film director Lloyd Kaufman’s starring role in Motörhead: Through the Ages, the heavy metal content expansion for Victor Vran.

Each of the Victor Vran worlds contains a hub - somewhere for demon hunters to lay low, relax and recharge. For Motörhead the band, that was always a pub. Heavily inspired by the Rainbow Bar & Grill, where Motörhead founding member Lemmy spent much of his time, in-game visitors to The Pub at the End of Time have the ear and advice of pub steward Lloyd Kaufman. Lloyd and Lemmy were great friends, with Lemmy even appearing in several Troma films. Brought together by their mutual love of art, Lemmy never asked for a fee to appear in a Troma movie; all he asked for was a bottle of bourbon and a couple of “Tromettes” to keep him company, because as Lloyd will tell you, “it’s very boring on set for a Troma film!”

Lloyd Kaufman, considered an institution by many film lovers, is President and Co-founder of Troma Entertainment, one of the universe’s oldest independent movie companies. He’s best known for his iconic film The Toxic Avenger as well as a long lineage of protégés and collaborators, including Matt Stone and Trey Parker, as well as James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy – a film in which Lloyd has a two-second cameo as Prisoner #2.

Achim Heidelauf, executive producer and creator of Motörhead: Through the Ages said, “Lloyd always had to be a part of this game, he and Lemmy were such great friends and it just felt right. Also, Lloyd ‘convinced’ me during our time in prison, back then we worked on the Toxic Mayhem video game. Seriously -- I truly believe that you couldn’t have a Motörhead game and not include Lloyd!” When asked about the project, Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma Entertainment said “Toxie and I love this game. Can't stop playing it!"

This official and exclusive Motörhead expansion will feature an entirely new storyline, new enemies, weapons and skills! The expansion, titled "Motörhead through the Ages", will be entirely Motörhead themed and the established “Victor Vran” universe will be extended with new adventures to experience and bosses to fight.

The Motörhead game will consist of new game environments that have not been seen in the original game. Traverse war-torn landscapes and cities, Wild-West-inspired landscapes and the Dark Ages Castle where the Queen of the Damned resides, all heavily inspired by and based on Motörhead`s history, lyrics and general attitude.

Motörhead define the themes of the game as Victor faces evils relevant to our own world – religious fanatics, corrupt politicians and power-hungry oppressive rulers. During these quests he will be supported not only by the newly designed Motör-Weapons, -Powers and -Skills, but also a soundtrack with over a dozen tracks, partly never heard before!

Motörhead: Through the Ages was conceived back in 2014, with all three members of the band having been active consultants in its design and development. Further details on the content expansion will be announced in the coming weeks ahead of its release this spring.
