Let’s keep the Gamescom news going with the latest trailer for upcoming title The Cursed Crusade. This latest trailer highlights the huge variety of fighting techniques available within the game, with over 100 different attacks and over 100 finishing moves. Players will be able to utilise a vast array of weaponry including swords, axes, spears and shields. They will also be able to fight using interactive objects within environments; barrels, buckets, wells and more, can be used to dispose of enemies. Also revealed in the latest trailer are brutal finishing moves that players will be able to perform by working with friends in the game’s co-op mode. Those co-op finishers look AWESOME by the way.
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 12th Century 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.
