Find out more about Castlevania's first appearance on Facebook after the break.
Double-click your avatar and then click anywhere on the field to move into fighting range of your enemies. To fight your friends' avatars in real time, just click and drag on the lightning spires in your arena to shock your enemies until you reach Level 5. It's then that you'll unlock your first combat ability, Combat Cross, an area attack that will strike anyone around you. Any damage done to your enemies in the Arena--as well as recruiting more followers--will net you experience points to level up. To keep the competition alive, you can also "Taunt" your friends by posting on their Facebook pages when you deal out particularly nasty combos to your friends in the Arena.
If you haven't guessed already, the main hook of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Challenge is to fuel excitement for the console game through this gated preview content. We have to admit, we would rather have been able unlock content in the console game like behind the scenes development journals or bonus items for Gabriel to use in his adventures on the console. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Challenge is one of most animated and full-sounding Facebook games I've played in a long time, but better unlockable content would make this game that much more enjoyable.
