Konami has announced Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition for PC. In Europe, the game will launch via Steam on August 27 and at retail on August 30. North American release dates have yet to be confirmed.
Releasing almost three years after the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, the Ultimate Edition will feature the main game and two DLC add-on chapters, Reverie and Resurrection. In addition, it promises to offer enhanced 1080p HD graphics, run at a solid 60 frames per second via recommended spec, and trophy integration through Steam with cloud saving.
We said in our original review: “Castlevania: Lords of Shadow reinvigorates the franchise by borrowing from other games, adding its own wonderful magic system, and ratcheting up the epic factor to ludicrous degrees. It’s huge in scope, length, and depth, and it’s polished with obvious love and passion.”
