New Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 developer diary talks modern setting and a seamless world

Written by: / / 3 Comments


Following on from the first developer diary released for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 which explored the game’s central character Dracula, Konami has unveiled a new video looking at its modern setting inspired by European cities such as Madrid and Cologne where the old and the new form an appealing backdrop.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will feature a seamless world with no loading times which gradually expands over the course of your adventure, and later in the game you’ll be able to warp between significant areas. One of the game’s interesting juxtapositions is Dracula’s traditional weaponry versus enemies and bosses which are decked out with more contemporary armour and weapons.

Here’s the new video:

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be released for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 25th in North America and February 28th in European territories. Head over here for El33tonline’s previous coverage of this blockbuster action adventure which includes Oliver’s two previews of the game based on builds from E3 2013 and gamescom 2013.
