Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Receiving Two DLC Chapters

In early 2011, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will be getting two story-driven DLC chapters.

The first, titled “Reverie”, revolves around the Carmilla’s castle. Slaying the queen has released an evil presence and Gabriel must rescue a woman named Laura from it.

The second, titled “Resurrection”, acts as an epilogue to the epilogue. Konami has promised it will larger in scope than the first DLC pack, and features a showdown with an old enemy. Obviously the post-credits cinematic that takes place in modern times left many fans clamoring for more, but I’m surprised it’s coming in DLC form, rather than a full-on sequel.

The packs are due in February and April, respectively. If you haven’t played Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, you should. It is easily one of the year’s 10 best games.
