Those who loved the first game have been anxiously awaiting this official announcement.

As part of Konami's pre-E3 briefing, the publisher revealed that Mercury Steam's Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will hit store shelves this fall for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. No, it has not been confirmed as a cross-generation title. Sorry, no PS4.

Konami also gave us an exclusive debut trailer, which shows off the new modern-day setting along with several of the major characters. You also get a peek at some new foes and fresh weapons, all of which look fittingly cool. Lastly, very much unlike the first Lords of Shadow , the developer has revealed that the follow-up effort will feature open-world elements. Said Mercury Steam's Enric Alvarez:

"In Lords of Shadow 2, you'll be able to walk freely all over the game's universe without loading times and with a very organic and real feeling."

Oh, and the trailer also hints that renowned actor Patrick Stewart will reprise his role as Zobek. That should satisfy the fans, don't you think?

I've really been hoping for more about this sequel. The first one for PS3 was great.

Wow, never thought I'd play a Castlevania as Drac. I was really hoping for Alucard based on the original trailer.

revealed?
it was revealed last year!
hell it was suppose to be demoed at the EB expo last october but got pulled at the last minute.
so chuffed sir patrick is back, he just fits the character so perfectly!
better than peanut and jelly.
i just hope they do not change a thing with the combat system, it was PERFECT!
actually come to think about it, you change the combat and the 7 dogs of hell will be unleashed upon you!
we NEVER get games with such amazingly complex deep combat systems, so dont you dare take that away from me!

Did you put up the wrong trailer Ben? Or are we just not allowed to see the new one yet.
