If you’re a fan of the vamptastic game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, then you will be thrilled to find out that Konami has announced another piece of DLC (downloadable content) coming to Castlevania this month. Woot!
If you have already completed Gabriel’s main quest and united with the vampire Laura to open a rift to another universe then all that’s left is to drop into the darkness and slay the evil Forgotten One in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow’s finale. Titled Resurrection, the new DLC will be available on Xbox LIVE on June 7th and Playstation Network on June 8th (that is, if it works) and will cost 800 MS points on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace and on Playstation Network, it will be priced at $9.99.
Resurrection is said to provide a badass finale to already epic Castlevania storyline.
Here’s a look at the wonderfully awesome Castlevania: Lords of Shadow storyline for those new to the game.
“Castlevania: Lords of Shadow takes place at the end of days. The Earth’s alliance with the Heavens has been threatened by a dark and malevolent force – the mysterious Lords of Shadow – darkness reigns the world. Across this shattered land, the souls of the dead wander unable to find peace, whilst creatures of evil roam free wreaking chaos and death upon the living.
Gabriel is a member of the Brotherhood of Light, an elite group of holy knights who protect and defend the innocent against the supernatural. His beloved wife was brutally murdered by the evil forces of darkness and her soul trapped for eternity. Neither living nor dead she realizes the horrific truth of what is at stake and guides Gabriel to his destiny – and hopefully salvation for the world… but at what cost?
Thus, Gabriel must travel the destroyed world, defeating the evil tyrants in order to use their powers to bring balance back to the world. Armed with the versatile Combat Cross – the world’s last hope must encounter the three factions of the Lords of Shadow and end their unholy rule.”
