Dracula's sullen son Alucard stars in the first DLC for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Konami announced today. Titled 'Revelations,' the add-on goes down a little before the main game, discovering what Alucard was up to and playing with his own vampiric powers. It's due on March 25 but is only announced for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 so far, not PC.
Word of the DLC had leaked before, after people poked around in the game's files, but it's only official today. Rather than summarise it myself, look, here's the official word from Konami:
Playing as Alucard, gamers must discover the legendary vampire's secrets, unearth the true extent of his involvement in Dracula's story, and set in motion the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. The DLC expands the incredible story of the recently-released sequel, with the fate of the Belmont clan unveiled. Alucard has his own unique, powerful abilities, including use of the Glaciem and Igneas powers, in addition to vampiric abilities which allow him to transform into a wolf, a swarm of bats and even turn back time. Blood also fuels capabilities, as drinking the blood of enemies will intensify immortal powers.
