After being spotted in the Steam CDR registry database earlier this year, Konami has officially quelled rumours and announced that the original Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will be making its way to PC in both physical and digital form.
Titled the Ultimate Edition, the PC version will be coming not just with the full game originally released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but the Reverie and Resurrection add-on chapters. It also boasts "enhanced 1080p HD graphics, runs at a solid 60 frames per second via recommended spec, and offers trophy integration through Steam with Cloud saving."
The stunning 3D epic 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.
Enter 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.
Castlevania Lords of Shadow: Ultimate Edition will be released for Windows PC via Steam on August 27th, and as a physical product on August 30th. Check out the announcement trailer below for a look at the action.
