The First Templar game portrays a dark and gritty view of the late 13th century where old friends
become enemies, corruption spreads throughout the Church and fallen knights
oppress the weak and renounce their oaths.
The First Templar follows the story of two main characters - a French Templar,
and his companion, a noble lady who has been proclaimed a heretic. Taking
control over these two unlikely allies, the player must uncover the mysteries
behind the Templar Order, play a role in a grand conspiracy, and discover the
secret of the Holy Grail. The heroes face powerful opponents at every turn, in
the face of the Saracen, King Philip IV of France and the Inquisition.
The First Templar features both single player and co-op modes. When playing
solo, the player can switch between the two characters, leaving the control of
the second hero to the game's AI. At any moment a second player can join in and
take control of the AI controlled hero.
- Fast-paced cooperative play: players can assist one another as each
takes on the role of the game's key characters. Drop-in/out cooperative
gameplay lets the AI take over when one player leaves the game
- Single player- two characters: Play as either character, switching roles
as you go to use the best skills for the job
- RPG inspired character development: each has their own skills and skill
paths, which the player can develop as they complete missions and explore
the game world
- Rich, historical game-world: return to the 13th century, where European
culture is on the brink of collapse. 20 historically accurate locations have
been recreated for the player to explore.
