Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Reverie

Today Konami published new screenshots and art from upcoming DLC to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Reverie (seizing the opportunity I've added other Reverie materials to CastleKeeper's Gallery). You'll find those images here and here.

The company also announced some important info about the DLC:

"Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH today announced it will release the Reverie DLC pack for its acclaimed Castlevania: Lords of Shadow title at the end of March.

The download content will be available from PlayStation®Network and Xbox LIVE®Arcade later this month, costing 7,99 Euros for the PlayStation®3 version, and 800 MS Points for the Xbox 360 code.

The first of two planned DLC packs for the game, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Reverie sees players return to the castle as Gabriel seeks to help Laura, the former servant to the vampire Camilla. The death of the vampire Queen has unleashed an ancient evil that threatens the land, and Gabriel must restore balance in these two additional chapters for players to enjoy."

Reverie finished
According to Dave Cox's Twitter, MercurySteam finished work on the first DLC to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - "Reverie". We still don't know the exact release date but we know some other interesting facts (spoilers!):

  • Gabriel will return to the castle and meet Laura again.
  • She'll assist him in destroying evil (like Zobek in LoS), which awakened in the building after Carmilla's demise.
  • Laura is playable character in certain sections of the DLC.
  • There'll be new locations and enemies.
  • In published concept arts we can see Time Machine and portraits of the founders of The Brotherhood of Light. Will we meet them in person?
  • DLC will be released probably in February.

Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas everyone! May you spend it in peace and happiness with your family and friends. For this occasion Konami prepared special Christmas card with Gabriel Belmont - you'll find it here (I didn't know Gabriel can smile like that... so it must be truly magical moment after all ;)).

Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas!

In case you haven't seen last years CastleKeeper's card, I posted it above (this time with site address). This year I focused on adding new features to the home page. Recently I've changed some minor things - Facebook, Twitter and YouTube buttons are now on the top of the main text area and are visible on every page. There's also some more space between Twitter widget and news below, so now it shouldn't overlap the news when filled with longer Tweets. Just today I changed the "Like" button (it now links to CastleKeeper's Facebook page) and added hot news rotator.

Thanks everyone for feedback and testing (I've heard everything works fine even on mobile devices). May the new home page serve you well. :)

New Info About Lords of Shadow DLC Packs
Yesterday (22.12.2010) Konami announced new information concerning DLC packs for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. As we can read on American Konami's site (may contain spoilers):

"... two new downloadable content packages for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow which will feature all new areas, monsters, and brand new story lines.

In Castlevania Lords of Shadow 'Reverie', players will return to the Castle as Gabriel to help Laura, the former servant to the vampire Carmilla, in destroying the unruly evil that was previously kept in check by the recently slain Queen. Once completed, fans of the series can download the second DLC entitled 'Resurrection', which continues the story directly after the end of the original game and gives some insight into the dramatic epilogue seen by players upon completion and Gabriel's ultimate destiny. Both packs are expected to launch in early 2011."
