Sacred Citadel - New prologue for Sacred 3!

Recommended Posts

Mystix123    59

Compiled details from yesterday's Q&A.

 

Game Details

- 4 areas, 5 stages per area.

- 4 characters: Ancarian Ranger (Ranged), Safiri Warrior (Melee/Tank), Khukuri Shaman (Buffing and Debuffing), Seraphim Mage (Direct Damage Magic). All classes are available from the start.

- Towns have vendors, personal stashes and quests (challenges which include "no deaths", "time limit" and "high score" elements).

- Couch co-op and online co-op possible. Up to 3 players. Online co-op has a drop-in/drop-out system.

 

Gameplay

- Air juggling is possible.

- Faster, tactical gameplay (as opposed to slow and methodical).

- Dodging available with right-stick.

- Combo finishers include: Uppercuts, area-of-attack stuns, knockbacks, and back-strikes.

- Each class has a different secondary weapon: The Ranger has a bow, the Shaman has a tambourine for defensive and offensive/debilitating buffs, and the Mage has offensive magic. (Warrior was not discussed, but trailers have shown him switching to the 2-handed Hammer shown in artwork.)

- Level cap not explicitly mentioned, but "Maxing out is more stat-based as you level up a character..."

 

Loot Details

- There are three different tiers of armor with their own appearance, and within a tier you can have different stats for armor.

- Loot is not fully randomized like in Sacred 2, but random loot will randomly drop from enemies in a level and fitting to your progress. So, I'd say semi-fixed.

 

Game Release Details

- Will not be released for Vita at the moment.

- PSN: April 16th, Steam and Live: April 17th. (No discount for PS Plus members at this time.)

- 15 Trophies / Achievements. One will require all stages to be completed in multiplayer.

- A demo will be available on release.

- No currently planned microtransaction releases (costumes, for example).

- Confirmed that US and EU will be on the same servers (no region locked servers).

Love the write ups Mystix

I'm thinking ... could they be playing a bigger revenue game ...trying to hold both ends of the stick with this faster game for consoles, then the more "considered" game play for sacred 3?

Hmm, might actually give it a go on PS3. That is, if I have the spare coin and no other interesting things on sight. (Latter being most unlikely scenario. :P)

Good reference.

I was thinking Guilty Gear Judgment with Borderlands' loot system. Brawler+Fighter in Guilty Gear Judgment, with loot not quite as randomized as Sacred.
