'Castlevania: Lords of Shadow' (ALL) Coming To PC, Ultimate Edition Bundles DLCs

Lords of Shadow is a new action-adventure game, a story of one man's journey to discover the true meaning of sacrifice amidst murder and betrayal.

In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow players take on the role of Gabriel Belmont, voiced by Robert Carlyle, the hero of the game and part of the legendary Belmont clan from Castlevania lore. Gabriel is a member of the Brotherhood of Light, an elite group of holy knights who protect and defend the innocent against the supernatural. When his beloved wife was brutally murdered by the evil forces of darkness and her soul is trapped for eternity, she realizes the horrific truth of what is at stake and guides her husband to his destiny - and hopefully salvation for the world. Gabriel must track down the mysterious Lords of Shadow in order to unite the pieces of a relic called "The God Mask" that can purify the world and has the power to bring the dead back to life. Thus, Gabriel must travel through the destroyed world over snowy mountain ranges, gothic castles, and frozen wastelands in a devastated Southern Europe during the Middle Ages. Armed with the versatile Combat Cross™, Gabriel must defeat the evil tyrants in order to bring balance back to the world.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow on PC offers state of the art graphics that deliver an awesome game experience, plus add-on content (Reverie and Resurrection downloadable content) included in the full game.

PC Key Features:

  • New Features: Fans will enjoy the original full game plus add-on content Reverie and Resurrection. Additional features include enhanced 1080p High Definition Graphics, solid 60 frames per second (recommended spec), and trophy integration through Steam with Cloud saving.
  • New Storyline: Players can immerse themselves into the brand-new Lords of Shadow storyline, meeting classic characters and experiencing tangential side stories.
  • New Weapons and Skills: Overcome obstacles using the Combat Cross multi-function weapon and hone platforming skills in this sprawling adventure. Swing across chasms, climb sheer walls, rappel down cliffs, grip and pull away any and all things that get in the way!
  • New Titan Battles: Take on behemoth enemies that scale to the size of complete world environments and where special attacks and cunning speed are required for advancement.
  • New Exploration: Explore gothic ruins, dark castles, old forest and frozen wastelands. Discover a whole world to investigate with many routes and hidden secret places that contain items to aid Gabriel on his quest.

Along Gabriel's journey, gamers will traverse over 50 diverse and beautifully realized 3D stages, come up against over 45 enemies, and defeat adversaries that scale to the size of the complete environment with skill, power and timing. In total, the game boasts over 40 possible combo attacks that can be added to Gabriel's arsenal, as players must use secondary weapons like daggers and holy water and combine them with light and dark magic for a wealth of powerful attacks to unleash upon your foes. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow offers a wide range of puzzles with larger adversaries that require a specific means to exploit weaknesses, or object-related puzzles that will open doors or give access to previously unreachable areas. 

The latest Castlevania experience has quickly become a fan favorite with rich storytelling, innovative gameplay, intricate graphics, and iconic voice acting by some of the world's most recognizable voice talents including Patrick Stewart, Robert Carlyle, Natasha McElhone and Jason Issacs.
