NeocoreGames promises a tale wrought with wry humour and snappy dialogue.
"Van Helsing, a larger-than-life hero possessing a dark yet romantic charm, will follow his path to the dismal land of Borgovia where former supernatural foes have enlisted his help to defeat a new scourge terrorizing the ravaged city," says an official synopsis released by NeocoreGames.
"With an assortment of extraordinary characters, an engrossing storyline and a beautifully dark and gothic art style, it looks to bring action RPG enthusiasts an anachronistic adventure like no other."
Artwork displayed on the official website shows off some of the other foes Van Helsing will face, including a classic Igor-like character and a technologically enhanced werewolf.
The game will be released on PC and Xbox 360 at the end of 2012.
A short teaser trailer featuring a vampire assailant is also available online on the official NeocoreGames YouTube channel. Check it out below.
