Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 Revelations DLC Now Available: Play as Alucard and Finish the Story
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is a bit of a mess. The latest title in Konami's long-running series released to mixed reviews and gamers torn between the fun of controlling Dracula's powers in combat versus the terrible stealth sections that threatened to derail the pace of the game. Even the dark lord himself couldn't keep the game together forever, but perhaps his son Alucard can succeed where dear old dad failed in the just-released Revelations DLC?
After all, the game is enjoyable enough, and gamers are looking forward to see what Konami has up their sleeves for Revelations. It was revealed that the DLC would feature Dracula's son Alucard, who shows up in the main game for a little while but doesn't have much of a presence. In Revelations you'll find out about all the hardships that Alucard went through to prepare the castle for his father's arrival.
Much like the first Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, it's assumed that this DLC will give much more insight into the story of Lords of Shadow 2, insight past perhaps even the ending of the game. After all, it was in the DLC of the first game that the true ending was revealed, where you find out that Gabriel Belmont turned into Dracula.
Alucard will control much as Dracula but he'll have his own unique powerful abilities, including use of "Glaciem" and "Igneas" powers, and his own vampiric powers that let him turn into a wolf (much cooler than Dracula's puny rat!), a swarm of bats, and even turn back time.
Revelations is now available for Xbox Live, PSN, and Steam for $7.99. They have also released the pre-order incentives for the game, which include the Armored Dracula Skin, Dark Dracula Skin, and Relic Rune Pack, and can now be purchased for $0.99
