Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow “Reverie” DLC Swooping In

by on March 8, 2011

Konami have broken through out of the darkness of night with a ray of light for fans of their recent Castlevania: Lords of Shadow title, as they have now revealed some more details relating to the impending release of the first chapter of downloadable add-on content, along with the confirmation that a second episode of  DLC is also in development. The first chunk of DLC that fans will be able to take a bite out of will be entitled “Reverie” and the add-on is due to be released at the end of March.

The game was a reboot of the traditional Castlevania franchise, and featured an entirely new story and cast. In this, the first of the two planned DLC packs for the game, players go back to the castle as Gabriel Belmont seeks to help Laura, who was formerly servant to the Vampire Camilla. The death of the vampire Queen, at the hands of Gabriel has unleashed an ancient evil, and he must now restore balance to the land. Both this pack and the next instalment of DLC, entitled Resurrection, will take place between the ending of the game and the epilogue chapter. In the meantime, why not check out our review of the full game here, where it performed impressively and earned 9/10, and then feast your eyes on the new screenshots below:
