Soon Blood will begin to flow - dtp entertainment announces Blood Knights
Hamburg, 26. July 2012 - Today dtp entertainment announce their latest download game, Blood Knights – a full blooded Vampire-Action-RPG that features intense combat, tons of weapons, items as well as vampiric abilities that put players in total control over their enemies and let them feel the powers that vampires wield in the Blood Knights universe.

An exciting and entertaining story rounds off the picture of the unique download game. Blood Knights will be available on PC and Consoles this summer.

Blood Knights is developed by the renowned independent German studio Deck13 (Venetica, Jack Keane, Ankh) and features a plot focusing on Jeremy, a vampire hunter who was viciously attacked and bitten during on one of his dangerous missions and is now bound by blood to the sexy, but mysterious, 'vampiress', Alysa. The former arch-enemies have to work together to rid themselves of the binding.
Blood Knights’ vampire storyline comes to life through the heroes Jeremy and Alysa. As different as they are, they are bound by blood and have to fight together to survive. While Jeremy is a mighty warrior who is dual wielding increasingly powerful weapons and uses devastating attacks, Alysa uses crossbows, traps, bombs and special ammunition to eliminate her enemies from a distance. Both are able to use various vampiric abilities that become ever stronger and more and more impressive in the course of the game. Jeremy for example can pull huge groups of enemies towards him and unleash chaos upon them once they are in melee range.

Set in the mythical Middle Ages, the players will be able to control both Alysa and Jeremy in their cooperative quest for salvation, either in single player or co-op mode. The protagonists will encounter numerous enemies, avoid traps and fight and confront an impressive (and sometimes sexy) array of bosses - each one requiring a unique strategy in order to be defeated. Rich treasure and rewards await those who against all odds are able to fight their way through the wide variety of settings/scenes.

Blood Knights will be released in Q3 2012 for PC and consoles.

So it turned out to be another Co-op Action/RPG. Disappointed. Hopefully it's at least better than Hunted The Demons Forge. That game was terrible.

I don't believe that is correct. Tomasz' project is a collaboration with City Interactive - this is published by dtp. Also, the descriptions don't align at all. Different game.

I find it quite strange that dtp officially announces Blood Knights a mere month away from release. Everybody knew it was coming but the Amazon page had more infos about it than the few press articles. And then it's only sold as a half price title and a console DL game. What's going on?

I just remembered your right both games were announced months ago and I forgot he came out and said it was a different game. There was a news post about the confusion.

Isn't DTP Entertainment on the brink of Insolvency?

Awesomenauts was even in trouble of not being released.
