Publisher Deep Silver announced back in March that Keen Games’ action role playing game, Sacred 3, would be coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC platforms on August 26th. Though just revealed today, the game will be coming 3 weeks earlier than the previously announced launch date, which will now be releasing on August 5th. Pre-orders are open right now on GameStop, Target, Walmart, and Amazon for $49.99.
Players will be able to continue the Sacred series with characters that include Ancarian, Khukuri, the Safiri, and Seraphim, plus also have a choice from a variety of classes. Players will be able to play locally with two player co-op or go online with four player co-op. Sacred 3 will bring something new to the Sacred series called Weapon Spirits, which are upgradable items that allow players to enhance their weapons.
In Sacred 3, the guardians will need to protect a powerful artifact known as the Heart of Ancaria, and also the bond that people and peace there has been in the land of Ancaria. Though all that is disturbed by one ruler named Lord Zane of Ashen Empire, who would try anything to obtain the powerful artifact, and has also made allies with demons in order to open the gates to the underworld. It is your job to forge a resistance of Heroes to defeat Lord Zane and his allies at all costs.
