Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 screens:
Lords of Shadow 2 is scheduled for a February 25th release for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today unveiled new Dracula-centric screenshots, character concept art, and more for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, available on February 25, 2014 in North and South America for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 concludes the revamped series in epic style. Featuring a sprawling, open-world environment, free-roaming cameras, and over 20 hours of action, combat and exploration, the new game picks up where the acclaimed original left off. Awoken after centuries of slumber and yearning for release from his immortal bonds, Dracula finds himself stranded and powerless in contemporary times. Thus, the immortal vampire must rediscover his powers as he makes a pact with Death to defeat Satan. Only then will he gain eternal rest.
KONAMI has issued assets highlighting the skills and powers available to the player as they guide Dracula towards his destiny. New screenshots detail the vast modern day city and the expansive gothic castle where Dracula must reclaim his lost powers of transformation and collate the weaponry needed to dispatch Satan's hordes. Key adversaries are also displayed for the first time, as is the visible degradation of Dracula when he first arrives in present day, and the gradual resurrection as his powers grow.
The new assets also include stunning new art of key supporting characters, such as the Acolyte, and the as-yet unseen Dragon metamorphosis that is essential to defeating Satan, Lord of chaos.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC on February 25, 2014.
At the end of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, the origin of Dracula and his legendary connection with the Belmonts was revealed. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is the sequel to that 2010 reboot of the Castlevania series for play on Next-Gen game consoles. In it fans can expect thrilling new twists, action, adventure and challenges, as Dracula returns, this time to battle ultimate evil. Yet the dilemma is that he himself is greatly weakened and yearning for release from his immortal bonds. To succeed against the powerful threat he stands against, the vampire lord must reacquire his old powers - and only his castle holds the key. However, the famed Belmont clan also seeks his ultimate destruction.
