The Cursed Crusade: Latest Screenshots

The Cursed Crusade is an upcoming Atlus title, set to release in Summer 2011. While you may instantly think “niche RPG” when you hear that Atlus is the publisher, The Cursed Crusade is actually a third person action title that follows Denz, a templar, and Esteban, a thief and mercenary, two unlikely allies who are united in a quest to rid themselves of a curse that may consume their souls set against the backdrop of the Fourth Crusade.

The Cursed Crusade will unfold over 40 missions, across 5 chapters as the two protagonists venture across Western Europe during the start of the Fourth Crusade. In the midst of the destruction players can add to the devastation to increase their stats, but at the cost of their humanity. If you want to grab a friend you can play co-op either split screen or online as the second player takes on the role of Esteban. The combat system boasts over 90 combos, dozens of weapons and a timing based counter system.

The screenshots below provide glimpses of the melee combat, in all its visceral and bloody glory.
