A new co-op action adventure game called The First Templar has shipped today for Xbox 360 and Windows PC. The First Templar, as you might gather from the name, is set in the dark and gritty late 13th Century during the Crusade, where old friends become enemies, corruption spreads throughout the Church and once-noble knights oppress the weak and renounce their oaths.
Sounds like Kalypso Media’s really captured the good old-fashioned spirit of office politics.
In The First Templar, players will follow the path of two unlikely heroes on their search for the Holy Grail. The young French Templar Celian teams up with the noble lady and proclaimed heretic Marie to unveil a grand conspiracy within the Order of the Knights Templar. Together, the heroes face opponents such as the Saracen, King Philip of France and the Holy Inquisition.
The entire campaign of The First Templar can be played solo or cooperatively with a friend. When playing solo, the player can switch freely between the two characters, leaving the control of the second hero to the game’s AI. At any time, a second player may join in and take control of the second hero.
