New Trailer for The First Templar

A lot of hit and miss in that trailer. I do like that it’s co-op, though. I played a very early build of this and it had a ways to go so hopefully the additional development time helped.

PR ahead:

Kalypso Media USA, Inc. is pleased to release a new trailer for The First Templar, their upcoming third-person cooperative action game. The trailer showcases some of the game’s furious combat and diverse environments. The First Templar is set for a May 10 release in North America on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC, and features drop-in cooperative play, a historically inspired game world and a mix of puzzle and combat-based gameplay. For more information about The First Templar, please visit www.kalypsomedia.com.

Follow the path of two 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 conspiracy within the Order of the Knights Templar. The heroes face opponents at every turn including the Saracen, King Philip of France and the Holy Inquisition. The First Templar offers a captivating campaign that can be enjoyed alone 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.

  1. Techno music started playing right when he finished saying “this is my story, it will set you free” and i was like, No Way! Techno music in this game?! But then it was just my grooveshark turning on lol. Game looks kinda iffy on the mechanics, but who knows, never even heard of it before now.

  2. this is coming out May 10th and the animations look that bad? Bill, your impression isn’t leaving me any hope. It looks like a sloppy button mash ARPG.
