Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is getting downloadable content that will let you play as Alucard. The “Revelations” DLC will be released on March 25th for Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, and will cover new story branches. Here’s a story summary:
Alucard, the turned son of Gabriel, has shunned human life for many years, choosing to hunt only creatures of the night. The DLC takes place just before the apocalyptic events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, where Alucard readies for his father’s return and the forthcoming battle against Satan. As the plot unfolds, it begins to reveal how the lone vampire is inextricably linked to his father’s fate.
Alucard will come with his own abilities, including the Glaciem and Igneas powers, in addition to vampiric abilities that let him transform into a wolf or swarm of bats. He can also turn back time.
