Kalypso Media has announced that Haemimont Games is developing a new third-person action game called ‘The First Templar’ for the Xbox 360 and PC platforms. The First Templar promises co-operative gameplay as two players take on a variety of 13-century opponents as a French Templar and a noble lady accused of heresy.
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.
