Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is a game developed by Konami and MercurySteam for the Playstation 3, the Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. It is the sequel to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and Castlevania: Mirror of Fate. [1]. It will be released in 2013.

The games focuses on what happened to Gabriel Belmont, now known as Dracula, after the events of Lords of Shadow and Mirror of Fate.

On May 31, 2012 during Konami's Pre E3 2012 Press Conference the first trailer for Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 premiered. Featuring an older Gabriel who displays full ownership of his vampiric powers.

On December 7, 2012, during the Video Games Award, another trailer was broadcasted, giving more information about the story and gameplay.

On June 6, 2013, during Konami's Pre E3 2013 Conference, a new trailer was shown, showing gameplay and story. Zobek was confirmed to be part of the game.

Gameplay

Players will take control of Lords of Shadow's protagonist Gabriel Belmont, who now has taken on the moniker of "Dracul", as the game's main protagonist. He will traverse both his own castle and a modern day city, while battling both the Brotherhood of Light and the forces of Satan.

The combat system is based on the previous game. Gabriel's Combat Cross has been replaced with a new weapon called the "Blood Whip". However, combos are still strung together with strong direct attacks, and lighter attacks with more range. [2] Dracula can collect blood from the enemies he fights. He can channel int to "Void" and "Chaos". When the former is activated, Dracula's weapon will switch to the Void Sword. This weapon allows him to regain health when enemies are struck with it. Chaos switches Dracula's weapon to a pair of claws that will help him break through enemy defenses. [3] This system is highly reminiscent of how Light Magic and Shadow Magic were put to use in the previous Lords of Shadow.

Other powers Dracula at his disposal are controlling enemies and turn into mist in order to get past unseen or enter certain areas. [3]

After centuries of sleep and nothingness, Dracula returns, weakened. The Prince of Darkness burns to reclaim his ancient powers, and desires to get rid of his immortality. Zobek, worried by Satan's imminent return, asks his old friend to help him stop the Devil, at the price of Gabriel's immortality. Soon, it will be over.

Other Details

  • The Belmont Clan will return.
  • Lords of Shadow 2 will conclude the Lords of Shadow saga. [4]

E3 2012 Trailer

  • During the trailer, a stone statue of Satan can be seen.
  • Gabriel passes by two tombs in a corridor. The one he touches is Marie's tomb. The other one, on the other side of the corridor, is Laura's.[5]
  • When Gabriel passes in front of a mirror in the trailer he has no reflection.
  • Titans are seemingly returning, as a towering mechanical being is seen during the first trailer.
  • Gabriel is seen transforming into the shape of a "dragon". This reflects his new name, "Dracula", which means "Son of the Dragon". It also reflects the classic Dracula's "True Form", which commonly (albeit vaguely) resembles a dragon.
  • Alucard is seen at the end of the trailer.

Story/Gameplay Details

Through Twitter, producer David Cox has answered some questions and given confirmation of some details of the game.

  • Although Alucard uses the whip, Dark Pain, in Mirror of Fate, he will use a "very special sword" in Lords of Shadow 2.
  • Gabriel Belmont uses a whip remnant of the Combat Cross, as well as a sword. Cox confirmed there are other weapons for Gabriel to use.
  • A new Belmont will be shown in Lords of Shadow 2 which will confront Gabriel in modern times. Also there is a possibility that other Belmonts will face Dracul in flashbacks of his past.
  • The score will be completely new this time around, combining orchestra music with electronic music.
  • Gabriel only refers to himself as The Dragon, Dracul. He will come to be known as Dracula by others.
  • The game will span centuries, implying that it will indeed take place in present day as the first game's epilogue and the trailer shown at the Video Game Awards implied.
  • There are no more chapters, replaced with seamless gameplay.
