The First Templar Character Reveals

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
The First Templar is an upcoming "co-operative action adventure game" where players take control of Celian d'Arestide, a French Templar, and his companion, Marie, a noble lady who has been proclaimed a heretic. The pair must search for the Holy Grail in 13th Century Europe, and "unveil a grand conspiracy within the Order of the Knights Templar".

Publisher Kalypso Media has released a trailer showing Celian, the game's main character, in action. Celian is a "powerful melee fighter who can deal massive punishment to his enemies with his Templar sword and fighting combos".

The game also allows players to take control of a third playable character, Roland. Neither Kalypso or developer Haemimont Games has revealed when players will meet Roland, but he is another character with powerful melee combat skills and finishing moves.

The First Templar is due to be released on May 6th, 2011 in Europe and May 10th in North America. A release date is yet to be confirmed for Australia.
