Upcoming DLC for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 to Have Alucard as Playable Character

on March 8, 2014 12:21 AM

If you were to ask Castlevania fans what their favorite game in the series was, most would undoubtedly answer with Symphony of the Night. There are a myriad of reasons why this game is so beloved and one big reason is the main character, Alucard. The half human/half vampire hero will now be playable in the upcoming DLC for Lords of Shadow 2 called Revelations.

This DLC will take place before the modern portion of Lords of Shadow 2. I say that because if you’ve played the game or demo then you know that Alucard shows up just before the game does its time jump to the present. It is during this gap of time that the events of Revelations happen.

Alucard is said to possess Glaciem and Igneas powers. I’m sure that these are the equivalent of Dracula’s Void and Chaos powers. Like his daddy, Alucard will be able to transform into animals, in this case, a white wolf and a swarm of bats. He’ll also have the ability to control time.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2: Revelations will be available to download for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 25th. Make sure to check out my review of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 by clicking here.
