Crimson Alliance Announced for XBLA Summer 2011

Crimson Alliance is an action RPG being developed by Certain Affinity for the XBLA this summer.

Certain Affinitys president Max Hoberman tasked the development team to take everything they learned from their FPS work on Call of Duty and Halo -- strong action gameplay, addictive character progression and great encounters and environments -- and apply it to the action RPG genre.

"One of the reasons I started Certain Affinity was because I wanted to make a game like this an action RPG with clever AI, fantastic physics and deep emergent gameplay that can be enjoyed with friends in the living room or halfway across the globe," said Hoberman. "Crimson Alliance is that game, finally!

The world of Crimson features labyrinthine crypts, ruined cities, deadly traps and hidden treasures, populated by elite mini-bosses and the devious minions they control. Each of the three main characters has their own motivations, revealed in a story-driven cooperative campaign of betrayal, foul magic and ancient secrets.
