About

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a slasher game developed by MercurySteam. It is a reboot of the Castlevania game series.

Plot

The game takes place in a fantasy version of a middle age Europe. A member of the group of knights, calling themselves the Brotherhood of Light, defends common people from supernatural creatures. His wife was murdered by one of them, but her soul is trapped between the worlds. She comes back to her husband Gabriel and guides him to the God Masks that can bring her back to life.

Gameplay

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a third-person adventure slasher title. Like in most games of this genre, Lords of Shadow focuses on short-range combat. The main weapon the player has is a chain whip called the Combat Cross. The players can use its powerful direct attacks or weak attacks that can be performed to inflict damage in a big radius. These attacks can be chained into more than forty different combo attacks.

The game features a Light and Shadow magic system, which affects the characteristics of the spells used by the player. Should one go on the path of Light, defensive spells will be used with Shadow magic using aggressive ones. It is also possible to upgrade the player's whip.

Just like the previous Castlevania titles, the game features numerous puzzles and a certain degree of platforming. The Combat Cross can be used by the player to scale walls, rappel down them or swing across the pits.
