Publisher Deep Silver has revealed Sacred 3, with a cinematic trailer and several screenshots offering the first glimpse of the next installment in the fantasy action RPG series.
Sacred 3 takes players deep into the Ancarian fantasy realm, where they will need to band together if they are to have any hope of vanquishing the deadly tides of evil.
“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 centered around drop in, drop out cooperative multiplayer for both offline (2 players) and online (4 players) play. The game brings back fan-favorite characters such as the Seraphim, Ancarian, Khukuhru and the Safiri, and 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. Master the art of war and fight your way through enemy hordes and try to outshine your fellow companions on your way to become the greatest hero of all. Victory Is Ours. Glory is Mine.
Sacred 3 is due to launch in Winter 2014 (Northern Summer) on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
