The teaser trailer you just watched was for Atlus’ newest title, 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.
