The story of The Cursed Crusade tells of a ritual performed by the order of Templars. As a consequence, a dark, terrifying new power was obtained. Terrible things started to happen, and many lives were lost; it was then decided that this new power would have to remain a secret. But no secret remains forever untold... With the end of the 12th Century imminent, the Pope launches a Fourth Crusade to conquer the holy city of Constantinople. The young Templar Denz de Bayle joins up so he can find his father, who never returned from the previous crusade. Denz will find the truth during a journey through the greatest cities of medieval Europe and the Orient.
The Cursed Crusade is scheduled to be released in the UK 2011 for PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PC.
