If you have not yet checked out the LoS2 demo, you should probably do that ASAP. You get to take down a huge golem attacking your castle and get a chance to test out the combat system. Using the shoulder buttons, the player can switch between the Void Sword, which adds enemy’s health to your own, and the Chaos Claw, which are used to break through tough enemy defense.
With the conclusion to the ‘Lords of Shadow’ series releasing on February 25th, the publisher has issued a dedicated trailer focused on Dracula’s powerful ‘Chaos Claws’. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 introduces an improved combat system, with Dracula earning a series of powerful weapons and abilities as he progresses through the game.
The Chaos Claws is a powerful weapon used to destroy the protection of heavily-armored foes. Found quite early in the game, the fiery gauntlets are used to smash away armor and shields, leaving the attacker vulnerable. Players can use the Chaos Claws to strip away a guard’s protection, before sapping their power by switching to the life-giving Void Sword.
The new 50-second trailer shows the Chaos Claws as an attacking force, and its sheer power in use. Stay tuned for more gameplay updates in the lead up to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2’s release.
