If you’re a fan of role-playing video games and you own an Xbox 360 console, I think we have some news that could well be of interest to you. Developer Certain Affinity has just announced its latest project Crimson Alliance, a brand new action RPG title that’s coming to XBLA this summer.
As JC Fletcher over at joystiq.com recently noted, the developer has also launched a brand new Crimson Alliance website, although the only thing that you’ll find on there at this stage is the game’s logo. Gamers have the option of either playing the campaign on their own, or with three of their friends.
The Crimson Alliance game – which combines fast-paced cooperative action combat with the element of RPG character development – features 3 different classes of character (the Wizard, the Assassin and the Mercenary), with each character possessing 5 special abilities.
Gamers will also be able to upgrade their character’s special abilities by collecting treasure, as well as finding hidden Soul Anchors. By opting to specialize in specific abilities, players are able to customize their characters to suit their playing style as well as compliment their friends’ characters.
The four-player co-op can either be played locally, or over Xbox Live. The world of Crimson Alliance – which is populated by elite mini-bosses and the minions that they control – features ruined cities, labyrinthine crypts, hidden treasures and deadly traps.
