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.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow marks a new beginning for the Castlevania series, with Madrid-based developer Mercury Steam working closely with Konami’s respected Kojima Productions studio, led by Hideo Kojima. The title is an incredibly ambitious and ground-breaking title that mixes stunning combat elements, with a fully interactive 3D realm populated by all manner of undead and inhuman denizens.

The game’s as yet unnamed protagonist, voiced by Jason Isaacs, is heard to proclaim he will “wipe the name of Belmont from this world… forever”, while a mysterious new Mask adds further to the mystery…

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is set in a ravaged Europe of the middle ages. The planet has been devastated by a powerful magic. The souls of the dead are trapped on our earthly plane unable to find peace, and inhuman creatures of nightmare now roam the Earth, wreaking havoc. Having witnessed his wife Marie (voiced by Natascha McKelhone) murdered at their hands, Gabriel (Robert Carlyle) pledges revenge against those responsible: the mysterious Lords of Shadow.

The Castlevania: Lords of Shadows Challenge is an exciting companion to the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow console game, expanding the realm of Castlevania to the social sphere by allowing users to battle their Facebook friends, unlock special Castlevania content, and build the ultimate viral army of good or evil.

A Facebook exclusive, the Challenge brings the bite of Castlevania to the social scene. Introduced to celebrate the recent launch of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, the Challenge allows fans to choose, construct, and contest their own virtual army of Castlevania combatants.
