Konami and Mercury Steam have announced that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will finally be arriving on PC, three years after impressing gamers on consoles.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ultimate Edition for PC features the full game, trophy integration through Steam, and two add-on chapters – Reverie and Resurrection, and will be available to download via Steam on 27 August, with a retail version following on 30 August.
Lords of Shadow rebooted the series by throwing you into the role of Gabriel Belmont who battles mythical creatures and giant beasts using the Combat Cross, which acts as a whip. Gabriel, the enemies, and the environments are all gorgeously detailed and some impressive camera angles and cut-scenes added that wow-factor that’s been absent from the series for a while.
Lords of Shadow managed to boost the franchise into a modern and relevant 3D action game, and with Lords of Shadow 2 on the horizon, things are looking bright for the vampire-hunting escapades of the Belmonts, and PC gamers should be excited to finally have the chance to take on the Lords of Shadow.
