PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow demo today - a week before everyone else, the European PlayStation blog announced.

Lords of Shadow is Konami's new 3D take on the Castlevania IP. Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima is consulting on the project.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will also be playable at the Eurogamer Expo 2010, which takes place in London from 1st to 3rd October.

We played Lords of Shadow at the end of August. "It's got a spark, creative impetus and dramatic touch about it that the Castlevania series has lacked for some time," wrote Keza MacDonald after her hands-on time with the game.

The game's out on 8th October.
