Bulgarian studio Haemimont Games, best known for their work on the Tropico series (most notably the excellent Tropico 5), is preparing for its latest effort, the Gothic horror action adventure Victor Vran, to come out of Early Access next month.
The team's been laying out just what current owners can expect from their purchase in the weekly updates leading to its planned late-July release. Here's some of what they've got planned.
A new Transmuter item will allow players to break down items not suited to their build in exhange for new resources, while a new Hard Mode and Elite Challenges provide a little extra challenge for those who've completed the game. Bounties and Treasure Hunts offer tantalising piles of loot, but they can also be shared with the community – you can swap Treasure Keys with fellow players if you're feeling generous.
Finally, there's a new free-for-all PVP arena which offers 15-minute matches, and a new Legendary weapon tier to hunt for; “There is even more to come: story cut-scenes, voiceovers, translation into multiple languages, increased max level from 20 to 50, new zones and dungeons, Steam cards and achievements,” promises the team.
Victor Vran is set to release in full this July. We rather liked what we've seen of the game so far.
