MercurySteam and Konami’s Dracula-centric sequel to Lords of Shadow is coming to consoles and Windows PC.
Footage from the sequel was showing during this morning’s Konami pre-E3 lifestream, during which the developers discussed how Lords of Shadow 2 was born out of overwhelming player interest in the first game’s epilogue. Said epilogue showed Gabriel Belmont—turned Dracula—perpetuating vampiric emo stereotypes in the modern day.
Producer Dave Cox revealed during that lifestream that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will feature a freely-explorable world with no load times.
Lords of Shadow 2 launches on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 this winter.
