Mastertronic released a new trailer for their upcoming title, The Cursed Crusade. This new trailer reveals the Curse which affects central character Denz de Bayle and his companion Esteban. The Curse adds another layer of gameplay to the Cursed Crusade, with players able to utilise powerful fighting abilities, produce flame attacks and discover hidden entrances within the game.
Neil McKenna, Mastertronic’s Product Director said :
“The Curse aspect of this title adds to an already exciting action-adventure gaming mechanic. Players will need to master the Curse, alongside over 130 weapons and 16 fighting techniques, to defeat their enemies and progress through the game. The latest trailer also shows off jaw-dropping cinematics that merge seamlessly with actual gameplay. The Cursed Crusade will be a standalone title in the action-adventure genre and we expect fans to be blown away when it’s released later this year.”
The story of The Cursed Crusade tells of a ritual performed by the order of Templars. As a consequence, a dark, terrifying new power was obtained. Terrible things started to happen, and many lives were lost; it was then decided that this new power would have to remain a secret. But no secret remains forever untold… With the end of the 12thcentury imminent, the Pope launches a Fourth Crusade to conquer the holy city of Constantinople. The young Templar Denz de Bayle joins up so he can find his father, who never returned from the previous crusade. Denz will find the truth during a journey through the greatest cities of medieval Europe and the Orient.
The Cursed Crusade is scheduled for a 2011 release on PS3, X360 and PC.
