Deep Silver announced that Sacred Citadel is currently available for download on PC, PSN and XBLA. Sacred Citadel is a new standalone title that is set in the rich universe of Sacred, that promises to reinvent the familiar arcade feel of classic brawlers while setting a new standard for the future of side scrolling hack and slash games.
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 also has the ability to dual-wield two exchangeable weapons, use combo attacks and perform double jumps. 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 is said to offer an engrossing multiplayer mode: as up to three players can join forces against their enemies in seamless drop-in/drop-out coop mode.
The events in Sacred Citadel will act as a prologue to the next chapter of the Sacred story and will unveil an intriguing secret about the Seraphim that will directly relate to the action RPG Sacred 3, currently in development by keen games and to be released in 2013.
In order to celebrate it, the publisher has also released a new trailer for it that can be viewed below.
