Deep Silver's quirky Sacred RPG series will be receiving a sidescrolling cooperative RPG brawler set in the Ancaria universe. With Ilomilo developer Southend Interactive at the helm, we can expect a tighter focus on teamwork than usual, while its story will act as a prelude to Sacred 3.
Sacred Citadel will feature "wild warriors" and "ridonkulous rides." But will it have an in-game metal gig?
As "a new standalone title that is set in the rich universe of Sacred," Sacred Citadel will emulate the familiar arcade feel of classic brawlers while attempting to deliver more depth and variety. There are several playable character classes, such as the Safiri Warrior, the Ancarian Ranger and the Khukuri Shaman, each with a different skill set that can be further individualized through RPG features and collectible items. Each character will also have the ability to dual-wield two exchangeable weapons, use combo attacks and perform double jumps. All of which combines into a fluid and unique arcade game experience with sophisticated graphics and spectacular effects. The player will also be able to ride mounts, use war machines and spend his hard earned cash in towns all over the world of Sacred Citadel.
Sacred Citadel will also offer an engrossing multiplayer mode: as up to three players can join forces against their enemies in seamless drop-in/drop-out coop mode.
It's dated for a 2013 launch on PC, PSN and Xbox Live Arcade.
