About Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ultimate Edition

About this game

Not so silent night for this Holy Knight

Experience the dark and vivid new re-imagining of the Castlevania mythology with the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ultimate Edition, featuring the base game and two DLC expansions. With this Steam key, players will follow the adventures of Gabriel Belmont – a Holy Knight and member of the Brotherhood of Light, sworn protectors of Earth’s final defense against the Lords of Shadow.

GRIPPING NARRATIVE
The world's alliance with the heavens has been threatened by a dark and malevolent force, the souls of the dead wander unable to find peace, whilst creatures of evil wreak chaos and death upon the living. Help Gabriel bring down evil once and for all and rid the world of supernatural horrors.

Enjoy high caliber voice acting from the game’s stunning cast, featuring Robert Carlyle OBE as Gabriel and Sir Patrick Stewart as the mysterious Zobek, in an epic tale of death, betrayal and redemption.

KICK DEMONIC ASS
Unleash your own hell via the Combat Cross multi-function weapon and hone your platforming skills in this sprawling adventure. Swing across chasms, climb sheer walls, rappel down cliffs, grip and pull away any and all things that lay in your path.

Equip a range of secondary weapons such as daggers and holy water, and combine them with light and dark magic to create powerful attacks to unleash. Don’t get too carried away with spells as power comes at a price!

THE BIGGER THEY ARE…
Go up against behemoth enemies in Titan battles that scale to the size of complete world environments. Use Gabriel’s special attacks and cunning speed to get the upper hand against these monstrous foes.

WE LOVE A GOOD PUZZLE
Leave no stone unturned as you venture through the Castlevania world solving tricky puzzles that unlock new items to help improve your chances of success.

BONUS CONTENT
Immerse yourself into the alternate Lords of Shadow timeline – meeting classic characters and in unique and tangential side stories. It’s time to discover Gabriel’s ultimate fate.

Reverie
Reverie marks a return to the game’s climactic castle setting as Gabriel seeks to assist the recently-slain vampire Queen’s hand maiden. The download spans three stages, and offers a breath-taking twist to the game’s plot

Resurrection
Resurrection, which itself follows on from the completed Reverie, lays bare the fate of both Gabriel and the Belmont clan. Gabriel must battle an evil demon known only as ‘The Forgotten One’ that has broken loose of its ancient chains.

A decent title in the gameplay vein of the old style of god of war. Glad to see it on PC. Worth a purchase at a hefty discount.

Probably one of the better Castlevania games in the 3D hack & slash genre, the game looks beautiful despite it's age, the camera can get annoying especially in platforming areas, but if you like Castlevania games this one has a great story and great gameplay, highly recommended.

Amazing, Fun. The story of Castlevania is told very slowly. It's not just a slow burn, but an easing into the world, its characters and the amazing story that unfolds.

This game was quite fun when it came out, but in 2022 it really show its age. The graphics are OK and overall the action is fun, although it is an old school designed game, which means a lot of QT events and the camera is often fixed in some areas, which make your life much harder. Sounds are great and the story is cliche but in line with what you get from any Castlevania game. Graphics is flashy at times and the action is fun in some areas; but after playing for a while, you will start to notice the cracks in the old school design style of this game. Get it if you find it at less than 10 dollars, otherwise don't bother, there are better action games out there.

What can I say, BEST Castlevania hands down, next to SotN. The voice cast and acting are top notch and the story is ultimately compelling to the end credits scene. MUCH Love

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ultimate Edition Review

Sam Jones
Staff Review
With the additional DLC expansions, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ultimate Edition gives players more of an insight into the life of Holy Knight Gabriel and the chance to experience MercurySteam's highly rated PC port in glorious 60fps.

Maybe the Best 3D Castlevania

MattroidPrime
Verified purchase
One of the better God of War clones out there and proibably the best 3D Castlevania game yet. Lords of Shadow has a great story, some excellent combat, and even some light metroidvania-style progression and backtracking to previous stages (for unlocking bonus upgrades). Game runs excellently on Steam Deck and is structured perfectly for pick-up-and-play sessions.
