We first brought you news of Sacred 3
way back in September of 2012
. Now, all these long months later, Deep Silver
has made it official. Sacred 3
Is that cool or what?! Characters who turn into smoke? Seraphim who fly? It looks like we've come a long way from Sacred 2: Fallen Angel
. Of course, this is
a trailer, so gameplay could be different, but I really hope they let us fly.
Sacred 3 features classic arcade Hack ‘n’ Slash action centered 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.
According to Remy van Leeuwen, Brand Manager of Deep Silver:
The paramount development goal for Sacred 3 has been to create a seamless online and offline co-op experience. 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.
Even better, we won't have long to wait. The official announcement said the game would be here this summer for the Xbox 360.
