Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Gamescom Trailer Highlights Void Sword Abilities

Posted on August 22, 2013 AT 12:10pm

A new video for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 highlights Dracula’s various skills through nearly eight minutes of gameplay footage.

The video (embedded below) details Dracula’s Void Sword, which causes damage while drawing Life Points from enemies, and how best to wield the blade in combat. The Void Sword can only be used as long as Dracula has magic energy stored—once that depletes, he’ll have to build up a new supply by relying on his shadow whip to gain Focus. The nearly eight-minute-long video also contains plenty of gameplay footage, including platforming, routine combat encounters, and boss fights.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 launches on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 February 25 in North America, February 27 in Europe.
