We have recently seen some stunning Gothic screenshots
of Konami's upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2
, and now Producer Dave Cox has performed an interview at E3 to give a bit of insight into the games development by Mercury Steam Entertainment.
The interview is spliced with footage from the game, as Cox reveals that it is a direct sequel to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
, set in the modern age. He goes on to detail how the new entry in the franchise will provide the player with more freedom to explore the world. Cox explains that since you are playing as Dracula, an all-round bad guy, the tone of the game is markedly darker than before. However, the story promises to reveal how Dracula came to be as such, with the events of the game taking place over the course of one night.
In any case, players have been promised many hours of epic gameplay.
