The son of famed vampire hunter Van Helsing is gearing up to slaughter a fresh bunch of monsters in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2, Nerdcore Games' second entry in a planned trilogy. Properly planning for an action RPG outing takes time though, a resource Van Helsing Jr. now has - Nerdcore has pushed Van Helsing 2's release from April to May 22 for the sake of polish, which conveniently gives our protagonist enough time for a siesta.

Once the adventure continues, players will be able to align with one of three class types; the range and melee-proficient Hunter, the magic-savvy Thaumaturge and the Arcane Mechanic, a deadly-device specialist. The ghostly sidekick Lady Katarina returns to aid players, but aspiring hunters can bring up to three living friends along in a cooperative campaign, or sling attacks in a PvP mode that supports eight competitors total.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II Delayed due to Monster Invasion

Slightly delayed, but no need to worry - all that extra time will be spent polishing the game. The new release date is set to May 22, 2014.

So, what happened to the April release date of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II? Well, we could blame the supernatural or the bad Vrikolak meat in the fridge, but the truth is, we want to release a superb game as polished as possible on release and that will take a little longer than we thought. We want to make sure the sequel is superior to the first game in every aspect and it keeps you nailed to your chairs all the way to the end with its engaging new story. Now the new date will also mark the anniversary of the first game's release. So be ready to hunt down the new swarm of monstrosities when the game hits Steam on May 22, 2014.

All of you are reaping souls right now anyway, aren't you?
