I know you’ve heard this several times by now, but it simply bears repeating: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is not a good game. Our review of the game paints an ugly picture reflecting an even uglier game as closely as possible. Nevertheless, if you were left wanting more, Lords of Shadow 2 will be getting some DLC treatment.
Personally, I would prefer a patch to address some of the freezes, crashes and game breaking bugs that I’ve been encountering in my self-induced torture of a playthrough. Instead, Konami wants to drag things along even further with an all new DLC episode titled ‘Revelations.’
Revelations puts the spotlight on everyone’s favorite Castlevania anti-hero, Alucard. He’ll come equipped with his signature abilities, such as being able to transform into a wolf and a swarm of bats. No, he does not transform into a wretched rat, to everyone’s relief.
The episode will be available on March 25, 2014. There was no mention of price. In the meantime, take a look at the first screens showcasing the episode and Alucard in action.
