Deep Silver has announced action role-playing game Sacred 3 will be released this summer on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
The game revolves around hack and slash combat and drop-in, drop-out online and offline co-op.
Offline the game supports up to two players. Online it supports up to four
Character classes include the Seraphim, Ancarian, Khukuhru and the Safiri, and new character Malakhim.
acred 3 is like Warhammer. On one side of things, you have deadly serious heroes with a strong sense of culture who are devoted to doing what’s right. The Safiri, for instance, harness the sun to power their warrior merchants. Meanwhile, the oppressed Ancarians are a group of guerilla troops who use nasty tactics to keep themselves safe.
Sacred was always better in co-op, so Sacred 3 leaves it on at all times.
Even if you’re not connected to three online pals, you’ll have a trio of A.I. allies rolling with you as you fight off large groups of bad guys.
And no, before you ask, you do not have to be connected to the Internet at all times to play.
It’s a role-playing game where you have an actual role to play, and because it empowers players by making them think about how they work together, it becomes a strong co-op game instead of a strong game with co-op.
