Atlus and developer Kylotonn have announced a new action-adventure game set to release in the summer of next year for the PS3, 360 and PC. Playing as two cursed warriors, the Templar Curse infected warriors wander the 12th century in The Cursed Crusade as they attempt to avoid a fate ending in hell.

The game plays in the cooperative third-person. Take a look at the teaser trailer and screenshots below for a first look at the game. Also, be sure to read on for several more details of the game.




IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- NOVEMBER 04, 2010 -- Atlus, in partnership with developer Kylotonn Entertainment, today revealed The Cursed Crusade, a new action-adventure game featuring two player co-op (online and local split-screen) for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PC. Set at the end of the 12th century and centered around a pair of cursed warriors fighting to save their souls, The Cursed Crusade marries the beauty and wonder of medieval Europe with thrilling adventure and dark fantasy.

"A story of salvation and survival, The Cursed Crusade brings to life the mystery and allure of the Middle Ages," said Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales. "The game's main characters are not heroes; they're just men, susceptible to temptation, easily made to feel doubt and despair. The raw, gritty accuracy of many of the game's historical locations is sharply contrasted by Denz and Esteban's supernatural struggle to save their souls. Their affliction, the Templar's Curse, threatens to accelerate their descent into hell, burning their humanity away as it engulfs the space around them in demonic flame."

Set against the backdrop of the majestic Old World, The Cursed Crusade's cooperative third-person action-adventure tale of damnation and deliverance will consume you.

The Cursed Crusade is currently scheduled to release in Summer 2011 for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PC. For more information, visit the official website [LINK].

About The Cursed Crusade
Set against the backdrop of the Old World, two adventurers--both seasoned warriors--will quest across a Western Europe ablaze with the turmoil of a newly begun Fourth Crusade. Denz, a holy Templar, and Esteban, a roguish mercenary, may have different origins, but their motivations are the same: amidst the danger and despair of a new Crusade, to find the means to deliver themselves from a terrible curse that threatens to consume their immortal souls.

  • The Old World Burns--Embark on a contentious quest for retribution spanning five chapters and 40 missions that promises to bring fire, death, and destruction to the great cities of medieval Europe.
  • A Templar Cursed--Transform the world around you into a flaming red vision of Hell, increasing your strength and your ability to perceive hidden things, all at the expense of your humanity.

  • Intense, visceral 3rd-person action--Easy to grasp yet deep in its execution, a weapon-based combat engine features over 90 combos, 130+ weapons, and a timing-based counter system.
