November 5, 2010Written by Cameron Teague

Atlus USA has announced that it will be bringing gamers back to the Old World with The Cursed Crusade. Drawing inspiration from Assassin’s Creed and Demon’s Souls, Cursed Crusade features a Denz, a holy Templar, and Esteban, a roguish mercenary on their trek through a war-torn Europe. Both characters are living with a terrible curse that threatens to consume their immortal souls.

The Cursed Crusade‘s key features include:

  • 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.
  • Brotherhood of Steel – Split-screen or online, recruit a friend to assume control of the thief, Esteban, to join in the excitement of shared adventure.
  • 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.
