Konami has announced the release of a playable demo of its eagerly-awaited Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 in North and South America.
The full game is scheduled to be released on February 25th for Playstation 3, PlayStation Network, Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE Games on Demand, and Steam for PC, and demos for all formats are now available digitally. The demo allows users to become familiar with the many new advances including the game’s all-new controllable camera, vast locations, and intuitive combat elements.
The specially-tailored demo gives players control over Dracula as his castle comes under siege from the Brotherhood of Light and their armies. The demo acts as a prelude to the full game, allowing the player to become familiar with wielding the assortment of weapons such as the energy-replenishing Void Sword and the armor-destroying Chaos Claws. It also showcases a huge Titan combat sequence, wherein a gigantic enemy creation forms a moving location during the game, with Dracula scaling the moving behemoth as it assails his castle.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 has been flagged as one of the most ambitious and epic games of the current generation, and acts as a stunning conclusion to the ‘Lords of Shadow’ saga. The full game will see Dracula stranded in modern times and charged with thwarting the emergence of an even greater evil: Satan himself.
The demo is currently available via PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Arcade and Steam for PC. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is also available for pre-purchase on Steam at a 10% off discount.
