Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be released on February 25, 2014 in North and South America for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. According to Konami, Lords of Shadow 2 will be the last game in the Lords of Shadow franchise. One of the features fans can expect in this sequel is open-world gameplay, a new storyline, new villains, improved visuals and immersive experience.
“We have come to the conclusion of the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow story,” said Dave Cox, Producer on the title and Studio Head of European Production at Konami Digital Entertainment. “As such, we have gone all-out to create a fitting climax to one of the most warmly-welcomed series resurrections to date. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is bigger, more epic and more challenging – and tells a tale that will live on in video game lore forever.”
Taking place in modern day, in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 players assume the role of a weakened Dracula, who’s been resurrected by an old ally in exchange for his help in defeating a powerful threat as old as time itself – Satan. Satan’s returned to the world to bring about the apocalypse and settle an old score for his defeat years ago.
While it’s somewhat disappointing to hear that Lords of Shadow 2 is the last game in the series, I am hoping that MercurySteam will have an epic finale for it. From what we’ve seen back at E3, the improvements the developer did to the game are apparent.
