The Kingdom of Zagoravia, once a prosperous, rich city bursting with life, is now under the rule of a demonic creature that took over its territory. Most of the Zagoravia inhabitants are either dead or fled the city, with the exception of its queen Katarina and an handful of her soldiers and advisers who still cling to the hope of regaining control. You play the role of the title hero, Victor Vran, a monster hunter who comes to Zagoravia in search of his friend and fellow hunter Adrian. Adrian, like many of their numbers, came to the city and never returned.
Victor Vran is an action RPG. The majority of the game is played in a Diablo variants fashion with exploring, leveling your character and killing monsters. It offers a few additions to the familiar formula, with a limited ability to develop your character and loot. It is also possible to choose to focus more on combat. You have a selection of eight variants of weapons. Each has it own unique behavior and abilities as well as two alternate fire mods. Also unusually for an action RPG you can jump and wall jump, which is useful for getting to some secrets locations in levels, and a dodge roll. Both are essential to survive battles with the monsters.
