Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Now Available

Dracula emerges from the shadows yet again as Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. announced Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is now available at retail stores in North and South America for the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox Live Games on Demand, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®Network, and Steam® for PC.

 

Set in a modern day open world, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 offers a shocking conclusion to the Gabriel Belmont story arc that began in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. For the first time, players assume the role of Dracula, who has been resurrected by an old ally in exchange for help defeating a powerful threat as old as time itself – Satan. Looking to settle an old score, Satan has returned to bring about the apocalypse as an act of final revenge for his defeat years ago, and Dracula must face him head on as the fight between good and evil comes to an end.

 

“We upped the ante with Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 by creating a vast open-world setting to give players a dark and explorative universe,” said Dave Cox, Producer and Studio Head for Konami Digital Entertainment BV’s European Production. “Concluding Gabriel’s saga was an exciting challenge, and fans should be ready to experience a shocking ending.”

 

The game’s orchestral score – composed by award winning songwriter Oscar Araujo – is also available today, adding to the game’s suitably Gothic atmosphere that explores the bonds of inescapable destiny.

Play as Dracula – Assume the role of Dracula and explore the world through his point of view
