Victor Vran is a Diablo-esque action RPG coming this summer to PC.
Haemimont Games, the folks behind the island nation simulator Tropico has just announced its latest title – a Diablo-esque action RPG called Victor Vran. If this sounds like it’s coming completely out of left field, you’d be right, as Haemimont prior credits include nothing but city simulators and strategy games. However, it does promise that Victor Vran will provide “fresh perspective” on the genre through the use of equipment and special moves that have a more drastic change on combat and gameplay than the largely invisible tweaking of numbers.
You can check out the teaser trailer above, and there’s also an official website and Steam Store listing for more info. The game will be released in “Summer, 2015”, but it will go into Early Access on Steam as early as May.
From the looks of things, and from what Haeimont is telling us, Victor Vran will focus a lot more on movement than traditional action RPGs. The trailer shows characters dodging, jumping, and moving quickly to avoid enemy attacks. The game seems to be set in that samey medieval series of demon-infested dungeons and castles that all of these kinds of games are set in (except for Titan Quest, I suppose). Here are some screenshots, mostly of spiders and skeletons:
The game seems to be a PC exclusive at this point, and will feature full multiplayer online co-op. We’ll have more info on it as soon as it becomes available.
