Van Helsing II - Interview @ Analog Addiction

Analog Addiction has a new inteview for The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II with Julia Inzsol the PR Manager at NeocoreGames.

Analog Addiction: Firstly, will The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II be a direct sequel?

NeocoreGames: Absolutely! Van Helsing II is the second part of an unfolding saga. It could be enjoyed independently, although it’s still part of an overarching plot. Actually we begin shortly after the events of the first game: after defeating the mad scientist, Van Helsing finds himself a new role in addition to being a hunter: he has become the reluctant leader of the Resistance, defending the Lair against the war-machines of General Harker, the former military commander of Borgova who considers our young hero a rebel and a threat to the city and wants to put an end to the solitary monster-hunting. Van Helsing will have to pull his socks up if he wants to defeat him.

Analog Addiction: How big (in terms of length, but also in the scope of its maps) is Van Helsing II going to be, when compared to the original game?

NeocoreGames: Van Helsing II is going to be similar in length to the first part, which was about 12-20 hours depending on the player. In the sequel we have a more complex story with tons of side quests and although I can’t tell you exactly how many maps you will find in the game yet I can assure you it’s going to be awesome.

Analog Addiction: Will the game be more open-world this time around, or will it be divided into sections, much like the original?

NeocoreGames: The second game is divided into maps just like the original. Within the maps you can go wherever you want and thanks to the side-quests it’s up to you where do you want to start the monster hunting on each map. Our tower defense mini-game will also make a return in the sequel and it’s going to be a more integral part of the game, yet it will be optional. But you should definitely give it a try if you enjoy placing traps and watching as monsters struggle with your epic defense, but you can do your usual killing stuff too in the meantime if you want.
