Knights of the Temple 2 and Gene Troopers Revealed

Cauldron has released screenshots from Knights of the Temple 2 and Gene Troopers, revealing development of both games (thanks Tiscali Games). The Gene Troopers Teaser Website is up (thanks Frans), and there's a Gene Troopers product sheet on Worthplaying. Here's the product sheet for KOTT2, which is in development for PC, PS2, and Xbox:
Travelling ancient kingdoms
In KOTT2 players will join the ultimate battle of Paul de Raque, Grand Master of the Order of the Temple and hero of the first game, and the forces of Hell. Travelling the lands and kingdoms of 13th century Europe, Paul must unveil the secret of three mysterious ancient artefacts and fight the demon armies attacking our world.

A Grand Master of the Order of the Temple, Paul de Raque has fought many battles in the eternal war between Good and Evil.

But now he faces his greatest challenge yet. Visions of evil forces invading our world, undead beings ravaging the peaceful lands of northern Europe and a dark menace opening a portal closed millennia ago.

Fight your way through a forgotten Roman city, deadly dungeons of the Saracen empire, discover long forgotten islands, ruins and catacombs on a search for a secret hidden on the ground of an ancient underwater fortress.

Test your fighting skills, overcome the hordes of darkness and discover that victory must be paid with blood, pain and even your very own soul...

Exceptional warrior
Knights of the Temple II is the sequel to last year’s acclaimed Knights of the Temple, which followed the epic exploits of the young templar Paul de Raque in his battle against the demonic forces of Hell.

Continuing the story of this exceptional warrior in the Dark Ages of medieval Europe, we added additional innovative game play elements.
