Mercury Steam talks exploring the world in Castlevania: Lord Of Shadows 2

Dracula has a seamless city to explore

Mercury Steam has released a new developer diary video talking about the game world that they have built for Dracula to explore in Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2.

In the time that Dracula has been asleep a city has grown up around his castle and Mercury Steam has built a very detailed European-style city based on their home city of Madrid in Spain as well as Budapest in Hungary.

As players progress through the game the city will open up and become more explorable to a point that eventually requires players to teleport around but it is all seamless with no loading times. Mercury Steam talks exploring the world in Castlevania: Lord Of Shadows 2

The castle's architecture is also based on the Spanish architecture seen in the region around Madrid as well as in regions of Hungary, especially Transylvania.

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2 is due out on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on February 25th in North America and February 28th in Europe and the UK.
