They were kind of a disaster last time, but Lords Alucard kind of makes me wish NECA would do a Lords line, even if it was only Alucard.

Oh thank god.

Until now, when the other description of this DLC was that we would see what Alucard was doing during the events of Lords of Shadow 2, that would mean we'd be playing as him in that awful black armor.

So very happy to see its his default attire.

He probably steals it at the very end of the DLC, he kills Zobek's original body guard and disguises himself.

I hope this DLC explains why if the only thing keeping Zobek from reading Gabriels mind about his (Gabriels) and Alucards plan to betray and kill Zobek, was the fact that 1000 years of incapacitation eroded his memory... What kept Zobek from reading Alucards mind?

Or did Alucard swipe the helmet from Magneto to keep Professor X there from reading his thoughts?

Yay Alucard. He's so cool. Day one.

Well, looks like there's more to explore in the Toy Maker's area. Those dancing puppets are soooo an allusion to the dancing ghosts in the original series.

Sure, you can be a wolf, but are there wolf-doors? [/hard hitting questions]

That's precisely what's bugging me. I can buy "it's all according to Keikaku" Alucard but how come Zobek never read his mind all that time?

Other than that the screens look good, looking forward to this.

Or how about how is Alucard running around inside Gabriel's head?

I mean, ideally there'll be no city levels in this DLC (false, false hope) but that doesn't explain how he's in the castle.

Also, I noticed they removed Alucard's belts. So they can re-use Dracula's animations?

Well there's no reason to think Alucard couldn't actually be in the real castle itself before it fell.

Man, only one week after the game released they announce the frikin DLC, I hate this world of DLC that we live on.

I will buy it if the price is fair.

It was announced and known before the game came out. I don't understand the anti-DLC vitriol myself. I always appreciated additional content to games I've bought.

I think about a month afterwords is a decent enough time to release some DLC. Its time enough that a lot of people have finished the game, but its still fresh in their mind so they're more likely to want to go back and revisit it.

Bergaron said they weren't developing this dlc until the game was released so I kinda expect a rush job (perhaps Konami just ordered them to rush with it so they can cut loses). On the other hand this brings the announcement of the new developers closer than we thought.

The Dlc takes place before Los2, so Alucard in the castle makes sense. It must be sometime after their meet up in the prologue.



I can understand the Dlc as almost 1/3rd of all comments/reactions was "Give us playable Alucard". As long as they keep it within the castle I'm cool.
