Konami’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Will Come to PC
Konami has announced that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is being simultaneously developed for PC as well as for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
In a press release, Konami also has detailed what the game will be like, including the fact that, unlike its predecessor, Lords of Shadow 2 will be an open-world title. Here’s a quote from the release:
“The Windows PC version of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is being simultaneously developed by Madrid-based Mercury Steam, and builds on its critically acclaimed predecessor. The title will feature an all-new storyline, a larger cast of characters, huge open world environments and breath-taking visuals delivered via a much more powerful, brand-new in-house game engine called Mercury Engine 2.
“Whereas the first game detailed the origin of Dracula and his legendary connection with the Belmonts, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 acts as a shocking finale to the Lords of Shadow saga. Dracula returns once again, weakened and yearning for release from his immortal bonds. Facing a new and powerful threat, the vampire lord must amass his old powers – and his castle is central to regaining his abilities.”
Lords of Shadow 2 will also pack a new engine. Expect it to release sometime in 2013.
