IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- OCTOBER 11, 2011 -- ATLUS today announced the release of a demo for The Cursed Crusade, the upcoming action adventure epic set during the Fourth Crusade for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system (PS3™), Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PC download via Steam. The demo, which takes players through the "Assault on the Castle of Biron" mission, a fortress siege set on a fiery summer's eve, is available now via Xbox®LIVE (initially only to Gold members) and PlayStation®Network; no PC demo is planned at this time.

Under a barrage of arrows and faced with a full armament of defending soldiers, the player, as Templar Denz de Bayle, must fight alongside partner Esteban Noviembre to break through the castle defenses, defeat the enemy forces, and ultimately confront a de Bayle family friend, Martin d'Algaïs. The Cursed Crusade's vaunted cooperative play, which supports both local split-screen and online play (local play only in the demo), is accessible, letting Templars-in-training invite a friend in to join the demo stage's stunning set pieces and brutal action. Also on display are the game's weighty medieval combat engine, a mix of bone-crushing attacks, dozens of lethal weapons true to the period, and a preview of the fiery, titular Templar's Curse that casts the world in a hellish orange glow. In addition, the demo offers a completely unlocked list of combos and finishers for all the weapon techniques in the game, allowing players to enjoy the tremendous variety of attacks in the full game. A tale of retribution and survival, The Cursed Crusade is sure to satisfy action gamers everywhere with its violence, gore, and drama.
