The campaign mode follows a dark story set in the 13th century, and is set in several historical locations. Up to 20 locations are available based on the lore of the Knight of Templar, and include Cyprus, Acre and Ibelin. Combat is an in-depth and complex experience, allowing players to use chain combinations and killing moves. In cooperative mode players can also work together for several unique attacks. The overall tone of the game is cinematic and is backed up by an orchestral soundtrack.
