Fans of Victor Vran rejoice! The action role-playing game is set to launch 2 new expansions as DLC, which are to be included as part of the Overkill Edition. Players who already own the game on Windows PC will be able to purchase the Fractured Worlds and Motörhead: Through the Ages expansion packs separately, as will players who wish to purchase the standalone game digitally on consoles.
Victor Vran Overkill Edition will still include the base game, but the additions of new areas to explore, new enemies and oodles of loot in Motörhead: Through the Ages and Fractured Worlds will most certainly bring back a lot of the veterans out there. Having played the base game back in 2015 myself, I was a huge fan of the extraordinary ARPG. I have a lot of time for Victor Vran and any excuse to jump straight back into slaying demons is okay in my books.
The first expansion as part of the Overkill Edition is Motörhead: Through the Ages. The expansion takes place in its own world and is accessible via the map screen. Motörhead: Through the Ages is a wild tour through the mythos of the loudest band in the world! Harness the powers of the immortal Motörhead to defeat deadly new adversaries in three demon-infested worlds intertwined with the songs of the band.
In the new expansion, players will have access to new weapons and skills including guitars, amplifiers and the ability to call in the bomber. The new maps contain new soundtracks and new outfits including attire from Motörhead!
Many years ago, Lemmy stumbled upon a twisted dimension filled with pain. Suffering under the dominion of a cruel dictator, to this world Lemmy entrusted the mighty Snaggletooth that he may defend that world… but Snaggletooth now lies silent. Join Victor as he answers the call of Lloyd Kaufman – the bartender in The Pub at the End of Time, to investigate Snaggletooth’s mysterious downfall, in this most gripping new addition to Victor Vran.
Motörhead: Through the Ages was conceived back in 2014, with all three members of the band having been active consultants in its design and development.
The other new expansion is Fractured Worlds – a dimension formed from the fragments of broken realms. Fractured Worlds is a perilous place for even the most experienced of hunters, where the level cap is increased and experienced players will be put to the test. Players will explore its unfathomed depths through new levels and endless dungeons where each step proves more dangerous than the last. Continue your journey as Victor as you attempt to piece together the Astrolabe in this new, thrilling addition to Victor Vran.
When I was speaking to the guys over at Wired Productions at EGX Rezzed 2017, one of the main focuses was creating a new scenario for players who had already beaten the base game. The feedback from players and critics when Victor Vran was released was great, but the burning question was when will there be more Victor Vran?
Fractured Worlds is a direct response to the feedback given by players, with endless dungeons to test your skills and endurance, as well as four maps that will change on a daily basis! This may prove to be the ultimate challenge for Victor Vran experts out there.
Both expansions offer a new lease of life to a game we already like, but trust me when I say there is nothing more satisfying than taking on the bad guys doing a guitar slide.
Looking forward to the new expansions? We are! Keep up to date for all your gaming news and reviews here at The Nerd Stash!
