Fans have been digging around in the code for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and they’ve turned up something quite interesting. A passage from one of the game’s text files hints at “Revelations” DLC that will allow players to control the infamous son of Dracula.
The text file reads:
“Play as Alucard in this extensive add on for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. The immersive story is expanded further as new branches of the plot are uncovered, along with rich new environments and challenging puzzles. Fight creatures of darkness and discover the true extent of Alucard’s involvement in Dracula’s story, his deal with death and his fight against Satan. Experience a whole new aspect of the thrilling conclusion to the ‘Lords of Shadow’ saga, including some enlightening revelations!”
Konami and Mercury Steam haven’t made any official announcements, but this information, coupled with the “Alucard DLC” sound file found in the Lords of Shadow 2 demo, strongly suggests that gamers can expect a rather large chunk of DLC coming sometime in the near future.
I’m currently playing through Lords of Shadow 2 right now and while it isn’t the strongest game in the series, it still offers fans a great deal of content and incredibly rewarding combat. Symphony of the Night is easily one of my favorite games of all time and there is no doubt in my mind that I would purchase Alucard focused DLC.
Would playing as Alucard make you more tempted to play Lords of Shadow 2 or have the sub-par reviews killed any desire you have to play?
