The Cursed Crusade has been delayed slightly, just until October 25th when it will be available for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. This new trailer highlights the games story in this epic Action-Adventure title. The game is also conveniently priced at $39.99, much cheaper than the normally priced retail game. A demo has also been confirmed to be on the way and before the games release too.
The demo will take players through “the Assault on Castle Biron mission, a fortress siege set on a fiery summer’s eve. Under a barrage of flaming 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’Algais.”
“As Denz de Bayle, your crusade will extend far beyond that of the Templar Knights. Free yourself from the curse…
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.
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. 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. Split-screen or online, recruit a friend to assume control of the thief, Esteban, to join in the excitement of shared adventure. 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.”
