Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced the release of a playable demo of its eagerly-awaited Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.

The full game is scheduled to be released on February 27 th/28 th for Playstation®3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC, and demos for all three formats are now available. The demo will allow users to get familiar with the many new advances including the game’s all-new controllable camera, epic locations, and intuitive combat elements.

The specially-tailored demo gives the player control over Dracula as his castle comes under siege from the Brotherhood of Light and their armies. The demo acts as a prelude to the full game, allowing the player to become used to wielding the key weapons such as the energy-replenishing Void Sword and the armour-destroying Chaos Claws. It also showcases a huge Titan combat sequence, wherein a gigantic enemy creation forms a moving location during the game, with Dracula scaling the moving behemoth as it assails his castle.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 has been flagged as one of the most ambitious and epic games of the current generation, and acts as a stunning conclusion to the ‘Lords of Shadow’ saga. The full game will see Dracula stranded in modern times and charged with thwarting the emergence of an even greater evil: Satan himself…

The demo will be available via PlayStation®Network, XBoxLIVE®Arcade and via the PC-based Steam service on February 13 th, 2014. Also, from today, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is available to pre-order on Steam. Pre-order customers will receive a 10% price reduction on the usual price
