Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will launch on February 28, 2014 for PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360, Konami has revealed.
Developed by MercurySteam, Lords of Shadow 2 takes place in a modern-day setting, with players assuming control of Dracula – aka Gabriel Belmont, now undead and loving it – as he battles through large-scale environments with an assortment of deadly weapons.
In addition to the all-new Blood Whip as his primary attack, Dracula can also complement his arsenal with the Void Sword and Chaos Claws; powerful tools that can replenish Belmont’s health and break enemy defences, respectively.
Players can also level up their weapons and abilities in what is known as the Mastery system.
Konami announced earlier this week that a high-definition port of the prequel, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will be released for PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade in October.
