Recommended Posts

Hey there guys, just some little pics I took from the teaser trailer of Sacred Citadel that will hopefully get us excited about this next game! I know I am ready to rock with these new characters, how about you guys? :D

Deep Silver just announced Sacred Citadel, a standalone single-player and co-op title set in the world of Sacred. The developers have described this one as the prologue to Sacred 3. Expect, the third installment in the Sacred series sometime next year.

 

"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."

 

The official word is as follows:

 

Three warriors unite against an evil that threatens to enslave the once peaceful world of Ancaria. Lord Zane's Ashen Empire has created an army of Grimmocs, modified Orc henchmen at war with the Seraphim. Only when these heroes unite and use their skills to support each other they will stand a chance!

 

Deep Silver today announced the side-scrolling action brawler Sacred Citadel, a new standalone title that is set in the rich universe of Sacred. Sacred Citadel will 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 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. 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.

 

Sacred Citadel will be out in 2013 as a digital download title for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system through PLAYSTATION Network, through Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and through Steam and other ESD partners.

Well...I think it will take a lot to excite me about this game, but at least we have a real S3 to look forward too!

 

To be honest it looks like a mobile phone game...

Firstly Ryan, thank you!. You've spent a lot of time on this for the community, and have showcased the three new rising stars for Sacred! You know, when I first saw/heard the trailer, I was

 

surprised

hurt

angry

scared!

 

:lol:

 

Then, after we heard that the portal is what sacred-world is about where they will start their first two dalliances with the franchise... Sacred Citadel and Sacred 3...I sat down and got to look at this trailer with a new-found satisfaction coming from my need for Sacred 3 sated with Deep Silver's Release date of 2013.

 

The trailer is good. It's the best trailer to come for this series, as I've kind of always thought the stuff done by Ascaron was... *cough* cheesey

 

*ducks*

 

This trailer has some very polished game-play, and the music is great. It's been a loooooooong time since I've done platform, and something like this with multi character, tons of beautiful physics... who doesn't like the archer shooting up the enemiy into the air like a juggling ball to pieces before it;'s destroyed... little things like this all add up to a great "feel" for a game.

 

I am wondering whether by calling this a prologue...does it mean that the ranger, khukiri and Saffiri will star in Sacred 3?

 

In fact, you know... I wonder...is this a kind of Diablo 3 with a variation? I mean lots of kills, multi play, perhaps not as many quests and tons of powerups...

Maybe this game will have the fun factor that Diablo 3 was missing with it's huge need for Auction House?

 

:)

Yeah, it might be easy to dislike Sacred Citadel as a concept, but they really are putting the work in. I love the concept art so far. I wonder if any of the characters will carry on into S3?

That's encouraging news. I've been waiting for this on consoles for a while, so hopefully we won't have to wait too long for it.

 

It'll be something for my cousin and I to play alongside Sacred 2...possibly replacing GTA4.

Hmmm... I kinda like it, but to me it looks like Sacred - Cadillacs & Dinosaurs - only with better graphics and some cool-looking spells and abilities. Might still be fun though.

Gotta wait another year for the next Sacred installment? Damnit xD At any rate I may purchase this game. Even if its a side scroller I played Castle Crashers and found it entertaining. Still I'm none to happy about the year wait :L

Console players rejoice: Citadel will be out on the 17th also. Also, the "Seraphim Mage" has been revealed as the final class!

 

Maurice is answering questions via Sacred World and Playstation Blog today also.

Awesome, great to finally see the final character! From the videos I got that she was some sort of battlemage (sword and magic), but that PS Blog makes it seem like its just an offensive mage? Then what does the shaman come under? Defensive mage? :Just_Cuz_21:

Correction to my original post: PS3 gets it on April 16th, then April 17th for PC and 360.

 

That seems to be it Ryan. Seraphim is the offensive mage, while the Shaman is a buffing/debuffing mage (with some healing abilities).

 

Edit: It could be because I've been watching some Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 tournament matches lately, but does the Seraphim remind you a little bit of Storm (from X-men)?
