Already known thanks to its announcement in Japan a few days ago, Knights Contract is made official for Europe and North America. In this game loosely based on a Germanic legend, the player will take control of Heinrich a badass warrior and will have Gretchen with him, the vixen sorceress who wants to destroy Doctor Faust. The game is set for a launch in 2011 on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Fistful of images and the debut trailer inside.
- Cruel Violence and Savage Sorcery in NAMCO BANDAI Games’ Brand New Action Adventure, Coming to PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360® in 2011 -
NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe S.A.S. today lifted the lid on fantasy horror title Knights Contract, its newest 3rd person action adventure title scheduled for European launch in 2011 for PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360®.
A period action adventure set in the days when a healthy paranoia about witches was considered de rigeur, Knights Contract follows the tale of Heinrich, a cursed executioner of witches, and young girl Gretchen, a reincarnation of a witch whom Heinrich previously had the job of be-heading and who returned the favour by cursing him eternally.
When a stupendously evil and deadly threat descends on the earth, Gretchen, having had her young life curtailed once already, decides she is less than enthusiastic about seeing it ended again so soon. She decides to tackle the threat head-on by putting her curse on Heinrich to good use, enlisting his business-like and highly effective executing abilities to help curb the supernatural blood lust of their foes.
Nothing is so easy of course, and a lot of blood and its supernatural equivalent needs to be spilled before order can once again be restored to the land. Razor sharp scythes and explosive sorcery are your spectacularly effective weapons in a twilight world where you’re never more than a stone’s throw from someone, supernatural or otherwise, who would rather see you six feet under. It’s time to let the combos fly and lay waste to the hordes of darkness with a liberal dose of medieval panache.

@KORNdog: I hated Syndicate's combat system. Unity's was so sluggish as well. I hope its fluid like AC3 and 4 but more deep and challenging (1 Hour ago)
It's performance related. Also, people underestimate the point of correct calibration. Having the 3d just off slightly for your eyes can cause bad eye strain, thus leading to nausea. (3 Hours ago)
I think motion sickness can be alleviated in future to the point where it won't be that much of a deal breaker. I noticed playing on Pro is a hell of a lot more comfortable than the standard PS4. (3 Hours ago)
And that's entirely possible. I can imagine RE8 being that way. Having to physically aim down iron sights to get a headshot on a zom would be immense, but scary as fuck. (3 Hours ago)
