Konami Digital Entertainment
has unveiled sixteen more screenshots
from Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
, which will be released for Windows PC in an Ultimate Edition via both physical and digital means. The PC edition features the full game and two add-on chapters, and will be available across Europe to download via Steam on August 27th, with a boxed product following on August 30th.
The game is set at the end of days and dark powers isolate the Earth. The World's alliance with the Heavens has been threatened by a dark and malevolent force - the eponymous Lords of Shadow. Across this shattered land, the souls of the dead wander unable to find peace, whilst creatures of evil wreak chaos and death upon the living. You will play as Gabriel Belmont: 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 evil forces and her soul trapped for eternity. Neither living nor dead, she foresees the horrific truth of what is at stake and guides Gabriel to his destiny - and hopefully salvation for the world.
