Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2′s First Dev Diary Explores Playing as Dracula

Posted on November 7, 2013 AT 02:25pm

In the first installment of a new developer diary series for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, members from developer MercurySteam discuss the design approach to their interpretation of Dracula.

This is arguably spoiler territory for anyone who hasn’t played the first Lords of Shadow, or who intends to before the sequel drops early next year. Although, this information is kind of unavoidable, since its the fundamental premise behind Lords of Shadow 2. Still, you have been warned!

In Lords of Shadow 2, players assume the role of Dracula, once known as Gabriel Belmont, but twisted into a more malevolent being following the events of the first Lords of Shadow. As Dracula, the man once known as Gabriel Belmont has access to a new suite of powers, including the Blood Whip, Void Sword, and Chaos Claws.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 launches on Windows PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 February 25, 2014 in North America.
