The Cursed Crusade from Atlus

November 15th, 2011 Comments off

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA —- ATLUS announced that The Cursed Crusade, the action adventure epic set during the Fourth Crusade, is now available in stores across North America for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system (PS3™), Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PC download via Steam.

A story of salvation and survival, The Cursed Crusade brings to life the mystery and allure of the Middle Ages. 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. A tale of retribution and survival, The Cursed Crusade is sure to satisfy action gamers everywhere with its violence, gore, and drama.

In addition, a demo that takes players through the “Assault on the Castle of Biron” mission, a fortress siege set on a fiery summer’s eve, is currently available via Xbox®LIVE (initially only to Gold members) and PlayStation®Network.

The Cursed Crusade is out now 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 at www.thecursedcrusade.com.
