Kylotonn Entertainment and Mastertronic Games have released a new trailer for upcoming historical action-adventure The Cursed Crusade. Set in a heavily-stylised alternate medieval Europe, this new hack & slash outing is set to deliver plenty of combo-heavy combat and a cooperative campaign that can be played in splitscreen as well as online. The two cursed crusaders (hence the title) are on a quest to save their souls from eternal damnation, and if the trailer is anything to go by, they'll go about it by killing loads of people. More details after the jump.
Set during the Fourth Crusade, The Cursed Crusader will focus on the trials and tribulations of a brave templar and a mercenary rogue who are drawn together in order to embark on a "tale of damnation and deliverance." The campaign will span five chapters and forty missions, with an accessible combat system that offers over 90 combos and 130 different weapons. As well as regular combat, players will also be able to deploy a special ability that turns the surroundings into a "flaming vision of hell." This mode highlights secrets, increases strength and makes combat easier... though apparently comes at the cost of your humanity.
The Cursed Crusade is set for a summer release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 - and promises to "bring fire, death, and destruction to the great cities of medieval Europe." You can read more about it over at the official site.
