Komani have announced that a fully playable taste of demon-smashing demo goodness has hit digital download on your favourite gaming machines.

Giving you the chance to traverse Dracula’s castle and defend it from the minions of Satan and the opportunity to test out some of the new combat and play with new weaponry including the snazzy Void Sword that regenerates Gabeula as he slices his enemies into foul smelling strips of ugly.

With an all new controllable camera and a control scheme that lets you combo fluidly, the chance to play before you buy is always a must, especially in days of pre-order or embargoed reviews that don’t give consumers the ability to make a hands-on decision about purchases.

If that’s not enough to whip you into a daze, it’s not just a short taster either. There’s a mega-boss of titanic proportions trying to pound the castle into the ground. Dracula has to scale the gigantic monster before it reaches his home, possibly feeling a bit like Shadow of the Colossus.

Go to your Playstation Store, Xbox Live Arcade or Steam on February 13th to download the demo, absolutely free and with the added bonus of playing the role of the biggest supernatural bad-ass in history.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is due for release on the 28th of February 2014 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
