Looks like more third-party support falling in favor of the Xbox 360, this time featuring a couple of unlikely heroes in a co-op action adventure game. Kalypso Media and Haemimont Games announced today that the co-op action title, The First Templar, will be arriving on Xbox 360s and PCs during the first quarter of 2011.
According to the press release…
The First Templar follows the story of two characters - a French Templar, and his companion, a noble lady who has been proclaimed a heretic. Taking control over these two unlikely allies, the player must uncover the mysteries behind the Templar Order, play a role in a grand conspiracy, and discover the secret of the Holy GrailThe game, much like Enslaved or Knights Contract, features two main characters at all times. Unlike the aforementioned games, though, The First Templar is actually a cooperative game…a feature that’s mysteriously missing from the other two titles.
You can check out the first set of screenshots for the game below, or visit the Official Website to learn a little bit more about this action-adventure title.
Features of The First Templar:
* Fast-paced cooperative play: players can assist one another as each takes on the role of the game's key characters. Drop-in/out cooperative gameplay lets the AI take over when one player leaves the game
* Single player- two characters: Play as either character, switching roles as you go to use the best skills for the job.
* RPG inspired character development: each has their own skills and skill paths, which the player can develop as they complete missions and explore the game world
* Rich, historical game-world: return to the 13th century, where European culture is on the brink of collapse. 20 historically accurate locations have been recreated for the player to explore.
