If you want an affordable action RPG to pleasantly surprise you, look no further than Victor Vran by Bulgarian independent studio Haemimont Games.
Haemimont, famous for the Tropico series, worked with publisher EuroVideo Medien to get the game released on Steam. It was part of the Early Access program from February through July of 2015 where it was previewed for The Nerd Stash by Sabine Algur, wherein she declared Victor Vran an “extraordinary upcoming ARPG.”
Now, having been fully launched in July, Victor Vran is just an extraordinary ARPG.
Larian Studios’ Divinity: Original Sin – Enhanced Edition marks the Divinity series’ arrival on consoles with a killer classic RPG experience.
