The First Templar has been released in the UK, a week earlier than we expected it. Here's a snip from the press release at GameBanshee:

The Conspiracy Begins as ‘The First Templar’ Hits UK Stores

Bracknell, UK – 6th May 2011 – Kalypso Media, a global publisher of award-winning PC and console games, is thrilled to announce the UK launch of the highly anticipated action/adventure game The First Templar for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC. The First Templar will also be available as a digital purchase through multiple portals from 12th May. For more information please visit www.thefirsttemplar-game.com

The First Templar is a co-operative action adventure game, set in a dark and gritty portrayal of the 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.

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.

They also have a video showing the first 10 minutes of gameplay on the same page.

Thanks, Zohaib.
