The First Templar ‘Celian the Templar’ Trailer Released

Continuing its focus on the key characters from the upcoming action/adventure game, The First Templar, Kalypso Media today released a new video showcasing the fighting skills of Celian d’Arestide. Celian, the game’s lead character, is a powerful melee fighter who can deal massive punishment to his enemies with his Templar sword and fighting combos. The First Templar is a cooperative action game for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC. The game is set for release on both platforms on 6th May in the UK.

In development by Haemimont Games, The First Templar is a co-operative action adventure game, set in a dark and gritty portrayal of the late 13th Century during the Crusade where old friends become enemies, corruption spreads throughout the Church and once noble knights oppress the weak and renounce their oaths.

Follow the path of two unlikely heroes on their search for the Holy Grail. The young French Templar Celian teams up with the noble lady and proclaimed heretic Marie to unveil a grand conspiracy within the Order of the Knights Templar. The heroes face powerful opponents at every turn including the Saracen, King Philip of France and the Holy Inquisition.

The First Templar offers a captivating campaign that can be enjoyed alone or cooperatively with a friend. When playing solo, the player can switch freely between the two characters, leaving the control of the second hero to the game’s AI. At any time, a second player may join in and take control of the second hero.

If he isn't playing one of those, you'll probably find him in a role-playing game instead. He's definitely not afraid to provide a straight up opinion on any game and has a strong like for indie developers. We all start small, after all.
