Damn…this game looks awesome!
The cast of this game is pretty amazing. Hell, I’d run out to watch a movie with this kind of cast, so you can be sure I’ll be picking this one up when it comes out! Some more details on the game, courtesy of Dread Central:
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow takes place at the end of days. The Earth’s alliance with the Heavens has been threatened by a dark and malevolent force – the mysterious Lords of Shadow. Across this shattered land the souls of the dead wander, unable to find peace, whilst creatures of evil roam free, wreaking chaos and death upon the living.
Gabriel is a member of the Brotherhood of Light, an elite group of holy knights who protect and defend the innocent against the supernatural. His beloved wife was brutally murdered by the evil forces of darkness, and her soul is trapped for eternity. Neither living nor dead, she realizes the horrific truth of what is at stake and guides Gabriel to his destiny – and hopefully salvation for the world … but at what cost?
Thus, Gabriel must travel the destroyed world, defeating the evil tyrants in order to use their powers to bring balance back. Armed with the versatile Combat Cross™ – the world’s last hope must encounter the three factions of the Lords of Shadow and end their unholy rule.
Mercury Steam has created a rich, open game world that traverses snowy mountain ranges, Gothic castles, and undead-strewn wastelands in a devastated Southern Europe during the Middle Ages. The production is being overseen by the European Product Planning office with advice and support from Kojima Productions. This multi-cultural dream collaboration will move the Castlevania brand to a whole new level with rich storytelling, innovative gameplay, and state-of-the-art technical elements brought together to form a revolutionary new direction for a modern 3D fantasy action epic.
