Dracula’s Customizable Combat Detailed in New Trailer
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. has issued a gameplay video showcasing the new adaptive combat elements of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.
The conclusion to the ‘Lords of Shadow’ series is available now for the Playstation®3, PlayStation®Network, Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE® Games on Demand, and Steam® for PC, and the new footage highlights how users can create modified combat elements within the game.
The new system is integral for combat, as Dracula awakens in a weakened state and must gradually extend his abilities. Gamers can gather experience points by killing foes and solving puzzles, and then use them to enhance the abilities of the game’s three main weapons: the Void Sword, Chaos Claws and Shadow Whip. Each weapon is governed by a ‘skill tree’ system, wherein players cleverly level up their weapons.
The more the player uses a specific weapon to execute key combination attacks, the more their power grows. Experimentation is rewarded with increased power as challenging attacks are perfectly implemented. The new trailer highlights how these attacks reward the player, devastating those that dare defy Dracula.
