'Sacred Citadel', a PS3/Xbox 360/PC game from Deep Silver and Southend Interactive.
Video game publisher/developer Deep Silver has released a new trailer for its upcoming title Sacred Citadel. In this video, three warriors stand against the evil Ashen Empire - one of them is the charming but iron-willed Khukuri Shaman.
Fierce Grimmoc warriors have almost brought the companions to their knees. The Safiri Warrior is overwhelmed by the sheer number of onrushing fighters, and his health is rapidly decreasing. In comes the Khukuri Shaman - quickly, she casts a spell to heal her party members. To counter the overpowering Grimmoc horde, she then rushes into battle to deal out crackling energy bolts with her magic wand.
Deep Silver today revealed details about the second of the four character classes from the upcoming side-scrolling action brawler Sacred Citadel. Unlike the Safiri Warrior, the Khukuri Shaman is not one to fight in the front line of a battle, but she has other, more bewitching ways of influencing her opponents. As a Shaman, she can cause buff effects on herself, the whole group, and even the enemy. She can heal her companions, strengthen the group's attack skills, or even curse their enemies in order to blow them up. The Shaman represents the healer class in Sacred Citadel and adds an important tactical element to the co-op focus of the game.
Coming from the Aeshema Mountains, the race of the Khukuri has lived in seclusion for many centuries. Their home is a land of ice and wind, located in the northwest of Ancaria. But now the gods have ceased to communicate with the Khukuri, and their scouts speak of evil in the lowlands that will also endanger their remote homeland in the near future. Hence, the Khukuri head out into foreign lands to discover what has caused their gods to fall silent.
The side-scrolling action brawler Sacred Citadel is a new stand-alone title that is set in the universe of Sacred. This new game features several playable character classes, such as 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. Each character will also have the ability to dual-wield two exchangeable weapons, use combo attacks and perform double jumps. Furthermore, the game will also offer an engrossing multiplayer mode: as up to three players can join forces against their enemies in drop-in/drop-out co-op mode.
The events in Sacred Citadel act as a prologue to the next chapter of the Sacred story and will unveil an intriguing secret about the Seraphim that will directly relate to the action RPG Sacred 3, currently in development by keen games and to be released in 2013.
Sacred Citadel, developed by Southend Interactive, will be out in 2013 as a digital title for the PlayStation 3 via Playstation Network, Xbox 360 via Xbox LIVE Arcade, and PC via Steam and other digital distribution outlets.
