In Van Helsing III, the civil war is over in Borgovia, but the future looks grim. The city of weird science is in ruins, squabbling factions and criminals fight for power and a strange cult prophesizes the coming of “The end of times.” And they might be just right: A wave of uncanny events shakes the land, and it’s all connected to a mysterious creature, a former ally turned into a fearful arch-villain. Which means that Van Helsing will do what he does best: He wields weapons, prepares his deadly tricks, and hunts down the most dangerous monster who has ever lived… and this time it’s personal. He’s prepared to do anything to achieve his goal, even to face the darkest secret about the birth of the modern Borgovia.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III is an action RPG that continues the story of the first two games. The game has three more classes than the last game for a total of six, you can play as a Protector which is a melee class with a large shield to absorb damage, the Umbralist who can hide in the shadows and quickly attack with two swords, the Phlogistoneer which gives you a suit of power armor with canons, rockets, and a force field, the Constructor that can employ turrets and mechanical constructs to help you in battle, the Elementalist who is physically weak but has powerful magic abilities, and the Bounty Hunter who wields a variety of ranged weapons and gadgets and has the ability to vault backwards away from enemies. Each class has their own skill trees that allows you to tailor the class more towards your playstyle, though you won't make the ranged DPS classes great close range combatants. The relationship between Van Helsing and Katarina is still a high point of the game, giving you enjoyable banter to listen to while you play. The new classes are fun but not enough was added to the game to make it an improvement on the last entry, enemies and other assets have been recycled, the level cap was reduced, the main story doesn't last that long, and there isn't much to do once the main story is completed.
