From game publisher and developer Deep Silver, comes the third installment in the Sacred franchise, Sacred 3. The game is going to be a cooperative action RPG featuring five classes. Co-op play is going to be two-player local "couch co-op" or four-player online co-op.
Deep Silver brand manager Remy van Leeuwen remarks that bringing a fresh co-operative experience was pivotal to the development of the game.
Deep Silver purchased the rights to the Sacred franchise from developer Ascaron Entertainment in 2009.The paramount development goal for Sacred 3 has been to create a seamless online and offline co-op experience. By creating a game built around the central concept of co-op gameplay, we're expanding the series to new audiences without compromising the rich lore and fantasy of the Sacred universe.
While there's no specific release date, Sacred 3 is tentatively set to launch Summer, 2014.
