No format is safe!
Konami has announced that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 has been in development for PC, and it will be released alongside the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions. The game is being simultaneously developed by Mercury Steam and will utilise the new in house game engine called Mercury Engine 2.
The game is set to build upon the solid foundations set by its predecessor and will feature a new storyline and a larger cast of characters. Lords of Shadow 2 will provide the conclusion to the story arc as Dracula returns once again; weakened and yearning for release from his immortal bonds. Producer of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Dave Cox, said that the team wants to go beyond the expectations that people hold. He said, “This new game tells a much broader tale and one that spans centuries. It is a game that pushes whatever format it is on to the absolute limit.”
With regards to the game appearing on PC, Cox added, “We are delighted that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2’s rich blend of first-class fighting, deep exploration and rich storytelling are set to delight and enthrall PC users, too. There’s a darkness coming and with our new game engine, we hope to deliver something truly special across multiple formats that will set new standards for action adventure games.”
If you missed the E3 trailer, it is definitely worth a watch…and if you have seen it, why not watch it again? Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be released in 2013.
