There's something to be said about the consistency of the name The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III. The other two games were simply The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing and The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II, so that makes sense. However, I've got to applaud NeocoreGames for not succumbing to the use of the subtitle, mostly because I get confused easily. There's no need to do away with numerals and slap on :Wrath of the The Vampire Puncher or :Dance Away the Darkness. Just go with numbers, people. It's how we count.
Oh, right. Van Helsing The Third is headed out sometime this May. That's probably not too big of a shocker, considering Van Helsing The First launched in May of 2013, and then its ancestor Van Helsing Numero Dos went live in May of 2014.
With this newest installment of Van Helsing headed to us in a scant month or so, how's about we rap about some new classes?
Here's a quick trailer promoting a modest two of the new classes coming this May.
Fun fact time: "Phlogiston" is the key element to the disproven "phlogiston theory," which suggests that flammable materials react to the phlogiston in order to create fire. In Van Helsing, it also lets you create a killer Lex Luthor suit and set fire to demons. Who knew!
While the Phlogistoneer relies on their smarts and fancypants murder armor to decimate waves of enemies, the Umbralist is a magical rogue who uses the power of deception to hack apart foes.
I don't recall Professor Abraham Van Helsing from the novel Dracula teaming up with a psycho in a huge metal suit and some guy with swords made out of pure evil, but it's been a while since I last read the book.
