September 29, 2020 - We're happy to announce, that World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap is now available on PlayStation 4. Originally released for PC and Xbox One, Deathtrap is a Tower Defense game with strong action-RPG elements, a game of vicious tricks, killing machines, rotating blades and splattering blood.


World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap invites players to venture beyond the veil of this world, where a chain of strongholds were once built to keep the horrors of the void at bay. Now that the monsters are returning from the depths to conquer and kill, players will take direct control of either the Sorceress, the Mercenary or the Marksman and rebuild the ancient traps to stop the monsters before they break through to our world.


Main Features:


  • Single player campaign and a specially designed 4-player co-op campaign, set in The Ink, the mysterious otherworld in the Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing games
  • PvP mode, where the defender prepares traps and defensive tactics, while the attacker has the ability to possess and control directly any creature in his or her army
  • Three diverse classes: Mercenary, Sorceress, Marksman, all with different tactics, skills and powers
  • 100 character levels to reach and 50 skills per class to unlock
  • Destructive spells and deadly mechanisms to smash, freeze, burn the creatures of nightmare
  • Rewarding side-quests and hidden neutral creatures with unique loot
  • 25 different deadly traps and more than 150 trap upgrades
  • Customizable equipment mechanics and inventory and a comprehensive loot system
  • Three different enemy races and more than 40 different monster types with countless combinations of monster abilities
  • Artifact crafting
  • Leaderboards and an online ranking system
  • Integrated Map Editor and Monster Editor, where you can share your deadly levels and mini-campaigns with others
