It seems that The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is coming to Xbox One at some point.
The news comes via the game’s official Facebook page where the above image was posted, along with confirmation that it will run at 1080p and 60FPS.
When asked in the comments whether it was out now, the reply said, “Not yet, but stay tuned for details.”
The slightly blurry image doesn’t make it clear whether it’s the first Van Helsing, or its sequel – which was released in June earlier this year – that will be coming to Microsoft’s console. The text indicates that it could be the original, but that may simply be a placeholder. Maybe, if we’re lucky, it’ll be both in a nice double package.
Although The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is based on the legendary book Dracula by Bram Stoker, it does not take place within the same universe. Players take on the role of young Helsing, son of Abraham Van Helsing from the book. IN terms of gameplay it’s a top-down slash and loot affair, not unlike Diablo. Both games have thus far been very well received on PC. The first game gained a Metacritic score of 72, while its sequel sits at 77.
Personally I’ve been meaning to play both games on PC, but haven’t managed to get around to it. Given how well liked they are, it’s good to see one or potentially even both titles coming to Xbox One, padding out a pretty sparse library of games.
