Enticing the general public with spotlights for the upcoming title, NeocoreGames showcases The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II with a new companion called the “Chimera”. This creature has the ability to be summoned by the hero and looks simply ferocious. Spawned in the “Ink” – an otherworldly realm, the Chimera was born with an insatiable hunger that continually plays into the creature’s gameplay mechanics. Here are a few things to expect with this action RPG:
- The Chimera can be summoned during battles as another helpful companion (let’s face it, what is a hunter without a dog… or even better, a dog-like, hulking and loyal monster).
- You can send it to the Ink, where it can gather gold, enchanted objects, even special potions and essences (without giving you a hard time about it, like Katharina does).
- The Chimera will evolve: it gets stronger and more experienced, but it needs to be fed in order to be useful.
- The Chimera has its own summoning chamber in the Lair, where you can enhance its strength along with additional skills, or improve its scavenging abilities (it will probably never learn to sit, but there is no harm in trying).
How do you gain this crazed beast? Well, you free it of course! As its new master you are able to level the Chimera up similar to Katarina with enhancements and additional skills.
