Will I need to play the first Lords of Shadow before this game?

I know this game is a sequel, but do you think it is essential? I had been meaning to buy Lords of Shadow and play it before this game came out, but other games got in the way. Do you think I should still do that, or do you think playing this one first will be fine? I plan to keep my pre-order, I could always put this game off for a while(since I still need to finish Fire Emblem and a few other games first anyway).

Not played MOF yet, but from everything I've seen and heard, while the original game will serve to flesh-out the story for you it's by no means required to play and understand this.

You'll pick up all the important concepts as you go. The original LOS only really served to set up Gabriel Belmont as this universe's Count Dracula.

I spoiler-tagged that, since it's a LOS spoiler - but chances are, if you've seen anything at all relating to either MOF or LOS2, you'll already know the big twist at the end of LOS1. If that's the case, it doesn't really matter what order you play the games in, though LOS2 will be the game that ends the series.

No, you will not. All that you need to do is have water and food, and you'll live.

It will make a ton of sense since this game takes place after lords of shadow and things have been changed around for this reboot.

plus it is a fantastic game also.
