Atlus Announces The Cursed Crusade

The Cursed Crusade is described as a third-person, dark fantasy adventure game set in medieval Europe. The game will have online co-op as well as offline 2 player multiplayer via split screen.

“A story of salvation and survival, The Cursed Crusade brings to life the mystery and allure of the Middle Ages,” said Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales. “The game’s main characters are not heroes; they’re just men, susceptible to temptation, easily made to feel doubt and despair.

The raw, gritty accuracy of many of the game’s historical locations is sharply contrasted by Denz and Esteban’s supernatural struggle to save their souls. Their affliction, the Templar’s Curse, threatens to accelerate their descent into hell, burning their humanity away as it engulfs the space around them in demonic flame.”

The Cursed Crusade is set to release next Summer for the PS3, 360 and PC.

    This looks pretty damn cool. I am going to have to follow this game close.

    Sorta like Demon’s Soul but not so brutal I guess.

    I believe this is the new name for “Project Dark” that is basically a semi-sequel to Demon’s Souls (same developer, publisher, same type of game, different name + universe).

    No, wait: the developer is listed as “Kylotonn Entertainment”, while Demon’s Souls and Project Dark are From Software (Atlus published Demon’s Souls). So, this is a completely different game? The dark fantasy melee action looks similar to Demon’s Souls.

    @Darrin those seem to be different games. Kylotonn Entertainment seems to be a French Company.

    When I read the topic title I thought it was From Software’s successor of DS..

    Looks interesting though.
