The First Templar - Interview @ Everbody Plays
UK site Everybody Plays has interviewed Haemimont game designer Bissar Dynakov about The First Templar. Here's a bit about historical accuracy, although the videos I've seen would seem to push the boudaries pretty hard:
he First Templar is a co-operative action adventure game, set in a dark and gritty portrayal of the late 13th Century during the Crusades where old friends become enemies, corruption spreads throughout the Church and once noble knights oppress the weak and renounce their oaths.
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. The heroes face powerful 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.
Are you strong enough to fight your enemies with different weapons, unique combos or team attacks and unravel the biggest mystery of mankind...?
