Imagine that you can never die. Picture yourself being so ancient that your number one adversary is the Devil himself. While immortality certainly has its upsides, including unearthly powers and unmatched strength, every immortal comes to a point where eternal rest is the ultimate reward and Dracula is no exception. Resurrected once again, weakened by time and still captured by his immortal bonds, Dracula awakens to learn that Satan has returned to seek revenge for his centuries-old defeat. Being the Devil, simple vengeance isn't enough. He plans to bring about the apocalypse, and Dracula has no choice but to re-acquire his powers of old and make a pact with Death to defeat the Devil once and for all and finally gain his eternal rest. To make matters worse, the notorious Belmont clan has entered Dracula's castle, bearing the truth behind their mysterious ancestry and seeking Dracula's destruction. Don the immortal shroud and become Dracula as the battle of good vs. evil finally comes to a close. Harness the vampire lord's deadly powers and abilities as you set off for epic adventures in the open, modern-day environment of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. Explore the labyrinthine corridors of Dracula's castle and traverse through levels using new platforming mechanics. Come face-to-face with terrifying enemies and massive Titan bosses in fights that utilize real-time physics. You'll need every bit of wit and courage you've got, as well as your new abilities, like being able to transform into mist, glamour and control enemies, disappear into the dark unseen and more, to come out on top of the deeply strategic combat. Intensify your immortal powers by drinking the blood of your vanquished enemies. Every victory you achieve brings you one step closer to finally being able to rest your weary head and shed the chains of immortality.
