The First Templar features cooperative combat set in Middle Ages Europe -- a time of darkness and encroaching evil. Players will take on the role of an honorable Templar and a brave noblewoman as they fight to restore order and their honor.

The game features both single player and co-op modes. When playing solo, the player can switch between the two characters, leaving the control of the second hero to the game's AI. At any moment a second player can join in and take control of the AI controlled hero.
