Castlevania: Lords of Shadow listing discovered on Steam


When this current generation of consoles finally moves on, and we begin getting nostalgic and start talking about our favourite titles of the past eight years or so, I will gaze longingly at MercurySteam’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.

The action adventure game was utterly stunning in many ways: combat was slick with ample special moves and combos to unlock; the storyline and characters were genuinely interesting; it was lengthy but never felt monotonous thanks to the metric ton of incredible locations and set pieces; the musical score (that score!) still gives me goosebumps; and the game had more atmosphere than most games in the same genre. Honestly, I fell in love with this game and it’ll make my Top 10 list for this current console generation, I have no doubt.

So then this is potentially really great news: a listing for the game has appeared on Steam, which means Lords of Shadow will probably be making the jump to PC. This is the same sort of listing that pre-empted the arrival of the once Xbox 360 exclusive Alan Wake series on PC as well.

Interestingly, the Steam listing labels the game as Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Early Access Comp, which seems to suggest that this could be a free version of the game that will come bundled with the upcoming sequel Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. It’s already been confirmed that the sequel will be heading to PC despite the fact that the original was console only.

Whether it’s a free bundle or a paid for title doesn’t change the fact that PC gamers are in for an incredible experience.
