ATLUS LAUNCHES NEW "CO-OP" TRAILER FOR THE CURSED CRUSADE, NOW SET TO RELEASE IN FALL 2011

  

The "Co-op" trailer shows the exciting 2-player, cooperative combat and combos fans can look forward to in this medieval action adventure set at the turn of the 13th century. Players have the option to recruit a friend to join the crusade and play as the thief, Esteban, so they can battle it out together in local split-screen or online. Players can count on each other to perform cooperative holds, finishing moves, and even to bring each other back from the brink of death. The split-screen mode is available in both horizontal and vertical splits, allowing crusading duos to customize their co-op experience to their liking.

    

The Cursed Crusade is now scheduled to release in Fall 2011 for PlayStation 3 system, Xbox 360 system, and PC.  For more, including screenshots, videos, concept art, wallpapers, and a special "Launch The Crusade" section, visit the official website: http://www.thecursedcrusade.com .

 

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.

Key Features

    <*> 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, dozens of weapons, and a timing-based counter system.
