Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 Trailer: Dracula Awakes

Posted on Dec 11 2012 - 5:00am by Dan Adcock

In the new trailer, Dracula (voiced by Robert Carlyle) wakes up after centuries of sleep, old and withered. He slowly begins to recollect his past and we then see him at the height of his powers long ago. As Dracula’s castle is being besieged, fans are exposed to various enemies he will face, in addition to an all new weapon — the void sword.

The trailer also finally confirms that the game will pick up from the explosive epilogue of the first title in the Lords of Shadow saga, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. This will be a game that spans centuries with much of it taking place in the present day.

Developed by Madrid-based Mercury Steam, Castlevania:Lords of Shadow 2 builds on its critically acclaimed predecessor. The title will feature an all-new storyline, a larger cast of characters, open world environments and breath-taking visuals delivered via a much more powerful, brand new in house game engine called Mercury Engine 2. 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 lost abilities.

Avid gamer who enjoys the older nostalgic titles as much as the newest AAA releases. Remakes from the classic 8 and 16 bit era are some my absolute favorite titles. I also enjoy experiencing new IP's on each and every platform, especially when the creators give the game an artistic look and unique presentation never seen before. I've been lucky enough to start out gaming on the NES. Since this rebirth of the industry, I have witnessed the evolution of gaming, both in its incredible growth in overall popularity and as an entertainment medium juggernaut. With the next generation of gaming upon us, there simply hasn't been a better time to be a gamer and I can't wait to experience all that it has to offer.
