Sacred 3 Announced!

Before we began working on this site we used to play a game we didn’t think many people had heard of. It didn’t appear on many top 10s, there wasn’t a huge amount of advertising, but it was very special.

Sacred 2 was a true co-op RPG. It felt like a fully-featured (although action-heavy) isometric RPG, but the whoel thing could be played in local multiplayer, with your own characters, inventories and all. It was beautiful. Sure it was rough around the edges perhaps, but no other game has mastered that joy of multiplayer roleplaying as well as they did with Sacred.

So you can understand that we’re very happy to hear that Sacred 3 is on its way, coming out in Summer 2014. The press release is below, but we can’t wait!

SACRED 3 DELIVERS ACTION FILLED FANTASY TO CONSOLES AND PC IN SUMMER 2014

Reveal Trailer Sets The Tone For Redefined Arcade Hack ‘n’ Slash Gameplay

Deep Silver today announced that the next instalment of the famed Sacred franchise, Sacred 3, will release on consoles and PC this summer. Sacred 3 takes players back into the fantasy realms of Ancaria, where they will need to band together in the hope of vanquishing the deadly tides of evil. Sacred 3 will be released for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and for the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft as well as Windows PC.“The paramount development goal for Sacred 3 has been to create a seamless online and offline co-op experience”, said Remy van Leeuwen, Brand Manager of Deep Silver. “By creating a game built around the central concept of co-op gameplay, we’re expanding the series to new audiences without compromising the rich lore and fantasy of the Sacred universe.”

Sacred 3 features classic arcade Hack ‘n’ Slash action centred around drop in, drop out cooperative multiplayer for both offline (2 players) and online (4 players) play. The game brings back fan-favourite characters such as the Seraphim, Ancarian, Khukuhru and the Safiri, as well as introduces a new character, Malakhim. Each character class features its own unique skills and weapons which can be upgraded to match the player’s very own combat style. As they master the art of war, players will fight their way through enemy hordes and try to outshine their fellow companions on their way to become the greatest hero of all. The inclusion of mission stats and online leaderboards will continue to drive competition both locally and online. Victory Is Ours. Glory is Mine.
