Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights will introduce Jean-Pierre Lautrec, doctor of archeology, and his student assistant, Sophie Coubertin. Set in Paris during the late 1800s, the game will follow Lautrec and Sophie as they search for the lost treasure of Louis XIV, a hunt that has also drawn the interest of a crime syndicate.

In addition to a single-player adventure designed to last roughly 10 hours, the game will feature a cooperative and competitive four-player Treasure Hunt mode, with extra missions available to download.
