Deep Silver have announced the latest entry in their legendary Sacred series. Sacred 3 will be heading to consoles and PC this summer, taking us back into the fantasy realms of Ancaria. 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, pretty much what fans have come to expect from not only the series, but also the hack ‘n’ slash RPG genre. As you master the art of war, you will fight your way through enemy hordes and try to outshine your fellow companions to become the greatest hero of all. The inclusion of mission stats and online leaderboards will drive competition both locally and online, so even though you’ll be playing cooperatively, you’ll still want to work to come out on top and claim the title of greatest hero.
“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.”
I’m a big fan of local co-op gaming, so I really can’t wait for this game to be release and until then, I’ll just have to entertain myself with the reveal trailer.
Thank you Sacred-World for providing us with this information.
