Victor Vran, a PC role-playing game where you smite demons, helped put Bulgarian game studio Haemimont Games on the map. And now Wired Productions has announced that it will publish Victor Vran on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 next year as part of a worldwide co-publishing agreement.
Watford, United Kingdom-based Wired Productions said it has a strategic partnership with Haemimont Games to take Victor Vran to the consoles globally at both digital and physical retail in early 2017. The move represents Wired Productions’ ongoing foray into publishing console games.
Victor Vran is an isometric action RPG that encourages players to venture and vanquish to their liking. Players can forge their own personal version of Victor by utilizing a vast array of powerful weapons, game-changing outfits, and wicked, spell-like demon powers as they explore the vast city of Zagaravia and its sprawling districts. Vran on waves of demons and clever boss monsters alone, on the couch alongside an ally, or online as a team of four – and emerge victorious.
“We’re excited to be working with Wired Productions to bring Victor Vran to millions of players around the world,” said Gabriel Dobrev, CEO at Haemimont Games, in a statement. “Our original vision was to shake up the RPG genre by delivering the first all action role-playing game, and the response from press and fans alike has been incredible. This partnership with Wired Productions will allow us to grow that fan base, and to engage with more players than ever before.”
Victor Vran for console has been built from the ground-up using Haemimont’s proprietary engine, delivering 60-frames-per second, along with local co-op for two players and online co-op for four players. PC owners will also be getting more content in the future.
“The first time I played Victor Vran, I was smitten, and to be able to work with such a revered studio as Haemimont Games to expand its army of fans is a privilege,” added Leo Zullo, managing director at Wired Productions, in a statement. “We’re delighted to begin this partnership, and to share something we love so much in Victor Vran with a community of gamers globally is a coup for us; we can’t wait to get started.”
Haemimont Games is Bulgaria’s largest independent video game developer. Founded in 1997 by Dobrev, the studio has more than 50 designers, programmers, and artists. The company has worked on titles such as the Tropico series, Grand Ages: Rome, and Omerta: City of Gangsters.
Wired productions, founded in 2008, has published more than 40 titles, including the 1.5 million unit hit We Sing.
