The long awaited sequel to Konami’s re-imagining of the Castlevania series is to make its way for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in the winter.
The announcement was made during Konami’s pre-E3 show, in which it was shown during the trailer for the game (If you still haven’t played the first game then I suggest you don’t watch the trailer as it contains quiet a few spoilers). Bear in mind though, just because it is announced as this winter, it does not necessarily mean that it will be getting a release during 2013, winter does run throughout 2014 aswell afterall.
This time gameplay will feature a free moving 360 degree camera, as well as open-world roaming without any loading times, enemies will be tougher to kill this time, as you have to break down their armour before doing any actual damage to them. Making his return will be Zobek, who once again will be voiced by Patrick Stewart (Genuinely excited by this news, as a massive Star Trek: TNG fan).
As someone that has played the first Lords of Shadow, and enjoyed every minute of it, I’m really looking forward to seeing how developers MercurySteam plan on concluding this epic story.
