Though it had technically been confirmed last year, a Konami press release today has officially announced that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow: Ultimate Edition will be released for Windows PC via Steam on August 27, with physical copies arriving on shelves August 30. While the press release only mentions "across Europe," I can confirm that the game has already appeared on Steam in the United States with the same release date, so I would imagine that's just an oversight. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was a critical and commercial success on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, so it's about time the game makes its way to the PC. In fact, it's the best-selling Castlevania game of all-time and a sequel is already in the works, also supposedly coming to PC.
The Ultimate Edition coming to PC includes the full base game along with the two DLC add-on chapters, Reverie and Resurrection. The press release also goes on to state that it "boasts enhanced 1080p HD graphics, runs at a solid 60 frames per second via recommended spec, and offers trophy integration through Steam with Cloud saving." The recommended spec, according to the Steam page, is Windows 7 or higher, a quad-core CPU, 2GB RAM, and a DirectX 11 compatible video card with 1024MB RAM. So most PC gamers should have no problem running it maxed. And while the press release doesn't state "and above" after 1080p, the Steam page does say it supports multi-screen displays, so higher resolutions should indeed be supported. If you're not interested in maxing it out, you'll be able to get away with Windows XP, a dual-core processor, and a DirectX 9 512MB video card.
