Sacred 2: Fallen Angel Announced For PlayStation 3
Today, Ascaron Entertainment, traditionally a PC developer who now wishes to test their mettle in the console world, has announced they plan to bring Sacred 2: Fallen Angel to the PlayStation 3 this fall.
Previously only confirmed for the Xbox 360 and PC, Sacred 2 is a massive open-world RPG that should appeal to fans of games like The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Best of all, PS3 owners can expected an upgraded version; it will feature "enhanced graphics, 5.1 Channel Dolby Surround Sound, added multiplayer modes," and will even allow "drop-in cooperative play." Speaking of multiplayer, this RPG boasts a two-player split-screen option, which is most commonly associated with the console realm...and not the PC realm. The character you create can be saved and used in all available gameplay modes, and without a doubt, this should give the PS3 a much-needed boost in the currently lacking RPG category.
"Role-playing game enthusiasts have always been strongly represented on the PLAYSTATION platforms, and we are delighted to offer a version of Sacred 2: Fallen Angel for the PlayStation 3," said Heiko tom Felde, Managing Director of ASCARON ENTERTAINMENT GmbH. "Weve been working on this version for more than a year, and can now proudly reveal it and its new features, to an entirely new audience."
By the way, when we said "massive" earlier, we weren't exaggerating: the game world is about 22 miles across, with 12 complete regions to explore and conquer. We'll have more for you soon on Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, but in the meantime, just be satisfied that an RPG is indeed coming to the PS3 this year. At least one.
