New Details for Castlevania: Lord of Shadow 2
Some new details were given on Castlevania : Lord of Shadow 2 during Konami Pre E3 Press Conference
The game will tell the story of Lord Dracula, as his story has not been explained fully, Konami explained. The game picks up from the epilogue in the end of Lords of Shadow finishes, and is the sequel to the first and offers a renovated story. Dracula will be the main character in the game and he will have three new abilities. Another change is that enemies will now have armor and shields that the player will need to remove in order to employ the enemies weaknesses, combat will be more tight, and tactical compared to the original game.
Other features also include the ability to walk freely around the game’s universe without any loading times, a ‘free camera’ feature where players can look around anywhere in the universe. With all this, Lord of Shadow 2 will have quite a graphical upgrade from it prequal brother. Lord of Shadow 2 is also set in a modern setting, making it stand out from previous titles in the series.
Another area that discussed during the Pre E3 Show is the music, the music this time around will be geared more towards characters emotions. I personally always like music like this, I think it adds a extra touch to character development. The new trailer for the game is out and ready to be viewed, so be sure to catch that below, Elizabeth is still live blogging the event, be sure to keep up to date here.
