Konami has released another trailer for their upcoming title Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. This time around, gameplay is the focus. Specifically, the brand new Mastery System that will be central to controlling Dracula in battle.
The new system is set to be an integral to combat within the new game. As Dracula begins each fight in a weakened state, he must gradually gain power and extend his abilities by slaying foes and solving puzzles. The experience gathered from said tasks can be funnelled into the abilities of the game’s three key weapons: Void Sword, Chaos Claws and Shadow Whip. Each weapon is governed by a ‘skill tree’ system, wherein players level up their weapons through clever usage . The more the player uses a specific weapon to execute combos, the more their power grows. Thus, weapon experimentation is rewarded with increased power as challenging attacks are performed flawlessly.
The conclusion to the Lords of Shadow series is slated for a March 6th release on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Check out the trailer below and witness how devestating the power of Dracula can be. It would be wise not to defy him.
