Written by: / / No Comments


As we count down to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2’s highly anticipated release Konami has decided to home in on the game’s music via a new behind the scenes video providing us with some excellent insight into the direction and inspiration behind its pathos-filled soundtrack.

Composer Óscar Araujo who drew plaudits for his work on the original Lords of Shadow’s score returns to bring fitting musical accompaniment to this epic tale of love, loss and revenge. The sequel’s soundtrack was recorded at the iconic Abbey Road Studios and features the largest orchestra ever used in the production of a videogame.

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.
