It’s been a long time since our last news bit on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and its impending DLC releases, so here’s a refresher. Back in 2010, Konami promised that two additional content packs would hit the game in 2011. “Reverie,” the first pack, will have you returning to the game’s world as Gabriel in an attempt to aid a vampire handmaiden named Laura. The other pack, “Resurrection,” perhaps the bigger and more meaningful of the two, takes place following the events of the original game and features a “showdown with a very notorious enemy.” The latter pack still hasn’t been dated, but the former? Oh, it’s got a date: March 30, 2011 in Europe and “near that date” (via Joystiq) elsewhere.
The cost is familiar. Reverie will debut at 800 MSP on Xbox Live and for $10 on the PSN Store. What’s unusual is its connection to the next DLC. According to Konami, this DLC will “segue into the next DLC pack’s stunning conclusion...” That means you don’t want to miss it, right?
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow hit the Xbox 360 and PS3 back in October 2010. Here’s ye olde Quick Look in case you’re wondering what the game is all about:
