SACRED 2– Fallen Angel is the highly anticipated sequel to SACRED; one of the most successful action RPGs ever created.

SACRED 2 is a purely action-based role-playing game, featuring six diverse and in-depth characters, each with their own distinct gameplay style.

One of the six characters is the Seraphim - the Fallen Angel. These mystical and angelic creature are the oldest inhabitants of Ancaria, destined to protect the world from chaos. The Seraphim is a fast, elegant and acrobatic warrior from a mystical, technological future. She fights with light to medium weapons and, if required, with massive technological support.

This immortal being usually has very fair skin. The Seraphim impresses the beholder with her elegant and immaculate appearance. Austere eyes without pupils, which express her strength of character and decisiveness, can penetrate

the darkness. The Seraphim is able to wear heavy and technical armour while maintaining her speed and elegance. The most striking feature of the Seraphim is her wings, which serve her not only as a deadly weapon but also as protective armour.

The Seraphim were once chosen by the Gods to protect Ancaria from danger and disaster. Having followed their calling for eons, the Seraphim began to lose interest in protecting the world from chaos. Their own needs moved more and more to the forefront. Today, only a few remember their vocation and continue to battle for peace and justice. The player has the opportunity to lead one of these creatures through the mysterious world of Ancaria. An ominous task in a world overrun with evil and greed, the Seraphim and her white tiger mount travel the Light path against the dark threat of those with the ultimate power as their aim.
