These days, if it says "Atlus" on the press release, we're more than willing to lend an ear.
Today, Atlus USA has officially lifted the lid on yet another promising project, The Cursed Crusade . In addition to Trine 2 and Rock of Ages , the new medieval title will be the third Atlus game scheduled to release in 2011; it's coming to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC next summer. Developed by Kylotonn Entertainment, this intense action/RPG game features plenty of combat, decent-looking visuals, and what should be a great amount of depth. Here's the teaser trailer:
Looks pretty damn good, right? And here are a list of features, which are also quite encouraging:
— Live intense combat sequences in third person view, in the heart of Crusaders’ army.
— Get more than 130 weapons of all kinds: axes, blades, crossbows…
— Experience the Templar’s Curse through the nightmarish Hell Vision!
— Provide your character with new armors and equipment, and upgrade his skills mission after mission!
— Give orders to Esteban Noviembre in the single player mode, or team up with another player in a cooperative mode to accomplish your mission!
— Travel through 40 distinct environments: from 12th Century Europe to the Byzantine Empire, from France to Syria, via Venice in Italy and Zara in Croatia!
— The most famous monuments and places re-created in 3D exact copies, from Hagia Sophia to Theodosius Walls, and the Constantine racecourse!
Sounds like a blast. For more information and the first set of screenshots, head on over to the game's official website .
