The First Templar launched tomorrow in the UK, and to get you geared up for it, Kalypso Media has sent over a few screen shots for the action-adventure game.

The shots below feature the game’s main characters, Celian and Marie running around the Crusade era of the 13th Century.

In the game, Celian, a young French Templar teams up with Marie, a noble lady and proclaimed heretic, to unveil a conspiracy within the Order of the Knights Templar. However, around every turn, the Saracen, King Philip of France and the Holy Inquisition are trying to stop them.

The game is a co-op affair, which will allow folks to drop in and out at will or you can play solo. The AI will take over the second player, and you can switch between Celian and Marie while soloing as well.

The First Templar is out on PC and Xbox 360 in the UK tomorrow, and May 10 in the US.
