Deep Silver has revealed more details on "Sacred Citadel," their upcoming downloadable spin-off of the "Sacred" series. The game brings new RPG elements to the side-scrolling brawler world, including unique weapon combinations, mounts, towns, a multitude of combat options.
Players will be able to play as three different characters chosen from a total of four – the Khukuri Shaman, Ancarian Ranger, Safiri Warrior and a secret character – all of whom can be leveled up to acquire new skills and abilities. You'll also discover new weapons and armor as you progress, which can be equipped to characters as you see fit. Like many RPGs, items can be stashed in towns, and potions will be used to regain health and power, which allows you to cast special attacks.
According to Deep Silver, "Sacred Citadel" will act as prologue to the upcoming "Sacred 3." There's no specific release date just yet, but the game will be available on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and PC sometime this year.
