Sacred 3 gears up for an August 5 release
Having revealed the official release date for the third installment in their popular Sacred series, Deep Silver has begun accepting pre-orders for the title. Gamers who do pre-order the game will be able to enter the realm of Ancaria as Malakhim, a character who uses mysterious blood magic to combat Emperor Zane’s armies.
If you pre-order the title at GameStop you will receive two more bonuses. The first is the Underworld Story mission pack, and the second is the exclusive Z4ngr13f Weapon Spirit. Weapon Spirits are a new addition to the Sacred universe that allow players to enhance their weapons. Each Spirit has its own unique buffs and debuffs and can be upgradeable, with some Spirits even taking the form of previous Sacred characters.
For those unaware, Sacred 3 pits good against evil in a battle filled with non-stop action and the chance to become the ultimate hero. The title features drop in/drop out co-op gameplay and players must outperform their teammates in epic battles where victories are shared, but true glory can only belong to one player.
The game itself features classic arcade Hack ‘n’ Slash action centered around this multiplayer (2 offline, 4 online). It also features the return of favorite characters such as Seraphim, Anacarian, Khukuri, and the Safiri.
Each class in the game features its own unique skills and weapons that can be upgraded to match your own combat style. Will you be able to outshine your fellows, or will you constantly be outdone?
