Gamers across North America will now be able to assist Heinrich, an executioner burdened with immortality, and Gretchen, a witch now resurrected after her execution at the hands of Heinrich, to rid 17th century Europe of "unspeakable evil". Knights Contract
is scheduled to be released on February 22nd, 2011.
In Knights Contract, take a journey through a world of swordsmen and magic where witches have been hunted and brutally exterminated. Once the victim of Heinrich’s blade, Gretchen now has him under contract to fight alongside her and the two must work together to rid the land of the malicious enemies who have cursed its people.
Armed with Heinrich’s razor-sharp scythe and Gretchen’s explosive witchcraft, players must utilize these tools to return civility to the land. As players succeed in their journey, they can deal tremendous damage onto their tormentors with fluid, fast-paced combinations and unleash gruesome finishers by coordinating the efforts of Heinrich and Gretchen. As the immortal executioner, players must protect Gretchen against hideous creatures and unspeakable evil as her magical prowess and mortality are the key to the duo’s survival.
