Deep Silver today announced the side-scrolling action brawler Sacred Citadel, a standalone title set in the universe of Sacred. Sacred Citadel takes the familiar arcade feel of a classic brawler and mixes it with the future of side scrolling, hack and slash games.
Playable character classes include 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. 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 offers a co-op experience with three players joining forces against their enemies.
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 tie into the next Sacred game, Sacred 3, already in development.
Sacred Citadel will be out in 2013 as a digital download title for the PlayStation 3, Xbox LIVE Arcade and through Steam for PC.
