After the Australian ratings board spilled the beans last week, developer Certain Affinity has now come out and revealed what’s behind the title Crimson Alliance.
On the game’s newly minted Facebook page, this description has popped up: “Crimson Alliance is the new action RPG from Certain Affinity! It takes everything we’ve learned about high action from working on shooters like Halo and Call of Duty, and everything we love about the fantasy genre, but gets rid of all that tedious backpack rummaging, and boring dialog! Up to 4 players can party together cooperatively over Xbox Live! or on the couch. So gather your friends, and get ready to enter the world of Crimson Alliance!”
Do RPG fans find dialogue and backpack rummaging boring? Does shooting action translate to RPG action? We’ll see.
The game has also gotten an official homepage, which right now is mostly home to some artwork and a fair bit of crimson. The company’s page promises hands-on with the game at E3 though.
Certain Affinity are known for working on map packs for Halo 2, 3 and Call of Duty: World at War, Halo Waypoint and downloadable title Age of Booty.
