Press Release (July 2002):

    Strategy First announces Inquisition
    One of the PC publisher's first PS2 games will be set in the 14th century.

    Strategy First has announced that it will be working with developer Wanadoo to produce Inquisition for the PC and the PS2. Players will take on the role of Matthew, a thief who gets thrown into prison for a botched burglary attempt. Matthew eventually meets an elder Templar Knight named Jack, who gives him a seal that could possibly lead to the treasure of the Templar Knights. Inquisition will be a full-3D action adventure game in which players will have to use Matthew's thief abilities to get past guards, pick locks, and leap from roof to roof. The game will feature seven levels, all of which have been modeled to replicate 14th-century architecture.

    Inquisition is currently scheduled for release at the end of 2003.
