The Castlelvania: Lords of Shadow Collection has a date with destiny, set to arrive early next month to retail shelves. Aside from two games and two different pieces of achievement-laden DLC, the game also features a demo of next year's sequel with your first chance to play as Dracula.
We detailed the contents of the collection previously but here’s a little refresher if you need a reminder:
• Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
– Users guide Gabriel Belmont, a holy knight charged with protecting innocents from the malevolent Lords of Shadow, as his murdered wife’s spirit guides him to his ultimate destiny. Included with the first chapter are the ‘Reverie
’ and ‘Resurrection
’ DLC chapters.
• Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate HD
– The second chapter of the series continues the story 26 years after the events of the original Lords of Shadow, as Gabriel’s descendants confront their destiny.
• Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Demo
– Whetting appetites for February’s epic conclusion, players also have their first chance to play as Dracula in the epic Lords of Shadow finale, via this exclusive demo.
Castlevina: Lords of Shadow is available on the game disc, while the DLC, Mirrors of Fate HD, and the Lords of Shadow 2 demo are packed-in as vouchers.
