Hunt the World’s Most Notorious Vampire in Fury of Dracula 4th Edition—Available Now!

WizKids has announced that the 4th Edition of iconic asymmetrical horror game Fury of Dracula is now available in North American game stores!

In Fury of Dracula, inspired by Bram Stoker’s classic novel, one player becomes the titular vampire while the remaining players take on the roles of hunters Dr. Abraham Van Helsing, Lord Godalming, Dr. John Seward, and Mina Harker, each of whom has a unique ability that serves to aid the group in capturing Dracula.

Each round is broken into two phases: day and night. During both phases, hunters may perform one of many actions such as travelling throughout the map or investigating their present location. Dracula, however, is only able to act at night, when he can lay traps for the hunters, create new servants, or secretly move to a new location. Players continue to traverse the map, featuring a variety of European countries, until either Dracula gains enough influence, or the hunters defeat him.

This new edition of the popular game includes larger cards, a refreshed rulebook, and all-new pre-painted miniatures to create a more immersive experience for players as they travel the European continent.  Will the Hunters take down Dracula before his undead thralls overwhelm Europe, or will he succeed in his insidious mission?

WizKids has revealed they will release the brand new edition of the classic Fury of Dracula with five new miniatures in July.

The game features one player as Count Dracula who secretly moves through Europe turning humans into vampires. The other players are Hunters who attempt to find Dracula and destroy him and the vampires before they take over the continent.
