The Cursed Crusade Demo Now Available on PSN, XBL

Atlus today announced the release of a demo for The Cursed Crusade, the upcoming action adventure epic set during the Fourth Crusade for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC download via Steam. The demo, which takes players through the “Assault on the Castle of Biron” mission, a fortress siege set on a fiery summer’s eve, is available now via XboxLive (initially only to Gold members) and PlayStation Network; no PC demo is planned at this time.

Under a barrage of arrows and faced with a full armament of defending soldiers, the player, as Templar Denz de Bayle, must fight alongside partner Esteban Noviembre to break through the castle defenses, defeat the enemy forces, and ultimately confront a de Bayle family friend, Martin d’Algaïs. The Cursed Crusade’s vaunted cooperative play, which supports both local split-screen and online play (local play only in the demo), is accessible, letting Templars-in-training invite a friend in to join the demo stage’s stunning set pieces and brutal action.
