Step aside, Twilight fans, there's a new bout of vampire action in town. Publisher dtp entertainment has announced Blood Knights, a downloadable game described as a "full blooded Vampire-Action-RPG." Players will be able to live out their vampiric fantasies with special moves and abilities held by the undead in the world of Blood Knights.
The game is being developed by Deck13, a small independent studio. The game is set in the Middle Ages and encourages multiplayer gameplay with a full cooperative play mode.
As for the story, it is described as follows:
"Blood Knights’ vampire storyline comes to life through the heroes Jeremy and Alysa. As different as they are, they are bound by blood and have to fight together to survive. While Jeremy is a mighty warrior who is dual wielding increasingly powerful weapons and uses devastating attacks, Alysa uses crossbows, traps, bombs and special ammunition to eliminate her enemies from a distance.
"Both are able to use various vampiric abilities that become ever stronger and more and more impressive in the course of the game. Jeremy for example can pull huge groups of enemies towards him and unleash chaos upon them once they are in melee range."
The game is due out in the third quarter of this year for PC and consoles. Its price has not been announced.
