Also confirmed today were a new target release date of October 11 and the title's final cover artwork, meant to highlight the main characters' transformation over the course of the game.

Accompanying new release details were new assets, including a "Templar's Curse" trailer and the first in what is planned to be a series of developer's diaries chronicling the game's development. The video shows more footage than ever of the dreaded, hellish Templar's Curse, an affliction railed against by Denz and Esteban, the game's two protagonists. Amidst the scorched, charred vision of Western Europe, the two adventurers must quest to save not only their lives, but their souls as well.
