Set for release on March 25, the DLC takes place just before the events of Lords of Shadow 2.
According to the official blurb:
The DLC expands the incredible story of the recently-released sequel, with the fate of the Belmont clan unveiled. Alucard has his own unique, powerful abilities, including use of the Glaciem and Igneas powers. Similarly, Alucard also has vampiric abilities which allow him to transform into a wolf, a swarm of bats and even turn back time! Blood fuels your capabilities, drink the blood of your enemies to intensify your immortal powers.
Released late in February, Lords of Shadow 2 is the final chapter in Gabriel Belmont's three game story arc.
