Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a game which has been overlooked by most but is high on a couple of the Platform Nation teams games of 2010. It is purely a single player campaign driven game and DLC may not have been expected by many, but today Konami have announced not one, but two pieces of DLC due to land in 2011. Reverie and Resurrection add more monsters, more areas and more story. If you were on the fence before, does the news of this DLC tempt you to pick up what Konami call “the most spectacular Castlevania title of all time”?
In Castlevania Lords of Shadow ‘Reverie’ players will return to the Castle as Gabriel to help Laura, the former servant to the vampire Carmilla, in destroying the unruly evil that was previously kept in check by the recently slain Queen.
Once completed, fans of the series can download the second DLC entitled ‘Resurrection’, which continues the story directly after the end of the game and gives some insight into the dramatic epilogue seen by players upon completion of the game, and Gabriel’s ultimate destiny. This will be larger in scope than the first add-on, as it features a final showdown with a very notorious enemy. Both packs are expected to launch in early 2011.
The first DLC for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will be released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in February 2011, with a second download to follow in April.
