PC gamers are getting a special treat next year! Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. is bringing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 to Windows PC, alongside its console brethren, the PlayStation®3 and the Xbox 360®. The PC version of the game is being developed simultaneously by Mercury Steam, which is a Madrid-based company, so hopefully the PC audience won’t be stuck with a buggy console port. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will feature a new storyline, more characters, open world environments and amazing visuals provided by the graphics engine, Mercury Engine 2. This sequel will act as the finale to the Lords of Shadow saga.
“Castlevania: Lords of Shadow successfully rebooted the franchise but now we want to go further and exceed people’s expectations on what to expect from the sequel,” said Dave Cox, Producer of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and Head of Product Planning and Development for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. “This new game tells a much broader tale and one that spans centuries. It is a game that pushes whatever format it is on to the absolute limit, and we are delighted that its rich blend of first-class fighting, deep exploration and rich storytelling are set to delight and enthrall PC users, too. There’s a darkness coming and with our new game engine, we hope to deliver something truly special across multiple formats that will set new standards for action adventure games.”
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be available for the PlayStation®3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC in 2013.
