As well as obviously including the game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 the Special Edition also throws in the Special Edition Belmont Box and a Limited Edition Art Book which i reckon is amazing value for money and is available from The Game Collection via their eBay Store.
Make sure to check out Brendan's review of Castlevania: Lords of Shadows 2.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is only £4.44 for a Steam download.
Lords of Shadow 2 turned out to be a bit of a letdown, with a drab modern day setting, ill-advised stealth sections and a lack of innovation, but we know you'll want to know how the saga ends. So be sure to at least pay a cheap price like this for it.

Just a few months after release the 360 version has plummeted to £14.86 (currently a fiver cheaper than the PS3 version) which makes it, well, still a rubbish game, but well... cheaper. On the plus side, the trade-in value will still be quite high once you're done with hammering through the game's 15 hour campaign.

While we'd advise waiting for it to drop a bit more, ShopTo are comfortably the cheapest site at the moment for the Xbox 360 version. On the plus side, the trade-in value will still be quite high once you're done with hammering through the game's 15 hour campaign.

Developers: Mercury Steam
Hundreds of years after Gabriel Belmont’s journey began; we’re here to witness the grand finale as we see him return as Dracula, to take on Satan and his acolytes one last time in the hope of finally finding peace and an escape from his immortal torment.
If the events of the original Lords of Shadow, the expansion DLC and Mirror of Fate are a little faded in your memory, there’s a summative cutscene early on to bring you back up to speed. Robert Carlyle and Patrick Stewart reprise their roles from the first game, attempting to add as much brooding and grandiosity respectively as possible. And lots of hammy dialogue so cringe worthy, it’ll give you a sore neck.
There’s also a recurring theme of Gabriel’s humanity trying to break through the darkness, aided by some touching scenes with spectres of his loved ones. Bosses are well characterised too, with one in particular haunting my thoughts long after with the echoes of gentle sobbing receding through the corridors of the castle as I left them with their shattered realisation of what they had been become.
A notable change for this sequel is the modern setting, which adds so little to the experience, but loses so much. Expect gritty streets, grey concrete corridors, factories and sewers galore. These settings are as dull as they sound and it’s a real relief when the Castlevania of old turns up and we get to see some castles. That said, even the gothic locales lack the impressive scale of the original LOS. With the whole game set indoors, or during overcast/nigh time conditions, it’s a gloomy affair throughout and detail seems left to to hide in the shadows.Click here to read more...
We can't wait for Lords of Shadow 2 here at Dealspwn and it looks like Mercury Steam haven't run out of ideas for ruddy huge boss fights yet either if this new gameplay video is anything to go by.
This multi-part boss fights sees ol' pasty face take on a transforming enemy that begins as a lance-wielding knight before going on to become a snake and then a large mechanical puppet-bot. Time to brush on those dodging skills as this could be a tough one. Fingers crossed there are some checkpoints along the way as this isn't the shortest of battles, but then again, the best ones never are.Click here to read more...
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is looking to end the Lords of Shadow saga in style early next year. Although, if you're yet to play any of the series, I'd advise staying away from this trailer as it gives away the endings for the first game and Mirrors of Fate. Speaking of Mirrors of Fate, which was originally a 3DS game, I'll have a review of the HD remake for you later on today. While you're waiting, check out my recent hands-on preview of Lords of Shadow 2.Click here to see the new trailer.
First things first. This hands-on report will be spoiler-free regarding the first game. I'm currently playing that one through (I know, I'm late) and several previews for the new game have blown the first game’s ending. I don't want to do the same if you're yet to play Lords of Shadow. So read this, then get on it, you don't want to get left behind again.
The word on the wire is that this concluding part of the Lords of Shadow saga is going to be a more open world affair. That's not on display here though as this is more of an introduction. Don’t worry; it’s much more exciting than it sounds. There's a massive, Holy Transformer thing for starters! But more on that later.
The original game is one of the best-looking games of the generation. Seriously, go borrow a copy and see. Packed with gorgeous scenery and pin-sharp images, it truly shames the genre’s competition with only the God of War games being able to stand up to it. Much of this was possible thanks to the fixed camera angle, as it allowed the developers to really focus on detail for set scenes rather than create fully-viewable environments accessible via a player-controlled camera.
This did make the odd fight awkward though as you could disappear behind large bits of scenery or more likely behind the massive troll beasts trying to squeeze the Holy Spirit from your guts. Not being able to move the camera also made exploration difficult, especially if a side-route was off-camera.Click here to read more...
Konami showed off a lengthy new trailer for Dracula's return in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 in their pre-E3 presentation earlier today.
Wallow in the fruity tones of Patrick Stewart once more, delight in the orchestral wonderment of Oscar Araujo's powerful score, and settle in with a bit of popcorn. Drac's back, baby!
Konami are holding their annual pre-E3 stream tonight from 18:00 GMT. They'll be showing off the recently-announced PES 2014, Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2 and... oh, who am I kidding, we're all going to be tuning in for more information about Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Apparently we can expect a trailer that prioritises story over explosions and hype.
We like emphatic statements here at Dealspwn. I mean, we like cloudy rumours, murky whispers, indistinct previews and bits and pieces from which we can draw a plethora of conclusions and justify our positions with opinionated conjecture and comment.
But we also like cold, hard facts, which is why the swift squashing of any hope for a Wii U version of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 gives us both a tingling sadness at the thought of an audience who won't be able to play it, and a lingering satisfaction at the rapidity with which the question was dealt.
It was all go this morning as GT.TV blew the lid off of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 in their E3 special that aired before the Konami pre-E3 presentation. Check it out above.Click here to read more...
