The upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 has an open world, and that’s the focus of this latest trailer/ developer diary from developer MercurySteam.

The video stars Dave Cox, Producer of the game, and Enric Alvarez, the Head of Development at MercurySteam.

According to the press release that came with the video:

Dave and Enric detail how the events of the new game take place during the course of one night, and within both a modern city setting and Dracula’s castle – both of which are linked. They also discuss how Dracula’s evil presence has impacted the many environments, with the castle’s Gothic look having a huge influence on the surrounding settings and their design, whilst also tying in with the familiar look of past Castlevania titles.

The five-minute video offers a tantalizing glimpse of the game’s many settings, and how MercurySteam’s native Madrid provided inspiration for the locations that await those entering Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2’s labyrinthine locations. The pair also touch on the menagerie of creatures and bosses that lurk within the city, whilst additionally whetting appetites for the game’s climactic confrontation with Satan himself…

While I wasn’t a huge fan of the 3DS game, I absolutely loved the original Lords of Shadow, and I really can’t wait until late February when this game releases.

In the meantime, enjoy the video!
