PC version adds new features, weapons, skills, and more.

The original Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is coming to PC in late August, Konami has announced.

Dubbed the “Ultimate Edition,” the PC version boasts a number of advantages over its previously released console counterparts, including:

  • New Features: The Ultimate Edition offers the original full game plus add-on content: Reverie and Resurrection. 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.
  • New Storyline: Players can immerse themselves in the brand-new Lords of Shadow storyline, meeting classic characters and experiencing tangential side stories.
  • New Weapons and Skills: Overcome obstacles using the Combat Cross multi-function weapon and hone platforming skills within this sprawling adventure. Swing across chasms, climb sheer walls, rappel down cliffs, grip and pull away obstacles.
  • New Titan Battles: Conquer behemoth enemies of terrifying size, where special attacks and cunning speed are required for advancement.
  • New Exploration: Explore gothic ruins, dark castles, barren forests and frozen wastelands. Discover a whole world to investigate with many routes and hidden secret places that contain items to aid Gabriel on his quest.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition will launch via Steam in Europe on August 27 and at retail on August 30. A North American release date has yet to be confirmed. (Don’t worry. Konami’s U.S. announcements come out later in the day due to the time difference.)

Update: Konami’s U.S. division has confirmed the game will arrive on PC this summer in North America, but did not provide an exact release date.

    Nice, I missed the console version so I’ll try this one out.

  • Chaos Raiden

    Sucks that home console owners will not get Ultimate Edition. Of well, at least more people get to play this good game.

      Based on the description here, we aren’t missing anything. It’s just a really late GOTY, basically. Apart from being in 1080p, it just has the DLC included.

    I really liked Castlevania: LoS but it was so tedious when exploring the world and looking for additional items. I’m hoping this ultimate edition they’re releasing for the PC won’t suffer the same fate.
