Ready for a taste of Dracula’s imminent return? If so, you’ll be happy to hear that Konami has released a playable demo of its eagerly awaited Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 in North and South America.
The full game is scheduled to be released on February 25th for Playstation®3, PlayStation®Network, Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE® Games on Demand, and Steam® for PC; and demos for all formats are now available digitally.
The demo allows users to become familiar with the game’s many new advances, including an all-new controllable camera, vast locations, and intuitive combat elements.
The specially-tailored demo gives players control over Dracula as his castle comes under siege from the Brotherhood of Light and their armies. It acts as a prelude to the full game, allowing players to wield an assortment of weapons such as the energy-replenishing Void Sword (see the video below for more info) and the armor-destroying Chaos Claws. It also showcases a huge Titan combat sequence, wherein a gigantic enemy creation forms a moving location during the game, with Dracula scaling the moving behemoth as it assails his castle.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 has been flagged as one of the most ambitious and epic games of the current generation and acts as a stunning conclusion to the Lords of Shadow saga. The full game will see Dracula stranded in modern times and charged with thwarting the emergence of an even greater evil: Satan himself.
The demo is currently available via PlayStation®Network, Xbox LIVE® Arcade, and Steam for PC. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is also available for pre-purchase on Steam at a 10% off discount.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 returns in an epic adventure set in an open, modern day world. Fans of the series will play as Dracula for the very first time and uncover the shocking conclusion to the Lords of Shadow saga.
