Three warriors stand against the evil Ashen Empire – one of them is the beautiful and determined Seraphim Mage.
The companions encounter a particularly fierce group of opponents. While the warriors in the front line of attack struggle to fend off the advancing mountain beasts, from the background of the battle the Seraphim launches one of her powerful attack spells. Caught off guard, the beasts immediately freeze to ice where they stand. Quickly, with the Safiri Warrior ahead of the others, the group of heroes leap on their hapless foes and smash them to the ground.
Deep Silver today revealed details about the fourth and final of the four character classes in the upcoming side-scrolling action brawler Sacred Citadel. The Seraphim represents the Mage class, specialized in offensive magic. She keeps to the background most of the time and casts devastating magic spells that cause elemental damage with various effects. With a spell book or a wand in her hand, she can also cause magic combo attacks using the elements of fire and ice.
The Seraphim were elite warriors, guardians of the gods. But after the Heart of Ancaria had been restored and peace had returned to the lands, the Seraphim went back to their remote cloisters, isolated from the rest of the world.
Sacred Citadel will be released on April 17, 2013 as a digital download title for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system through PlayStation®Network, through Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and through Steam and other ESD partners.
Sacred 3 is also already in development, and further details will be revealed at a later date.
About Sacred Citadel:
Side-scrolling action brawler Sacred Citadel is a new standalone title that is set in the rich universe of Sacred. Sacred Citadel will reinvent the familiar arcade feel of classic brawlers while setting a new standard for the future of side scrolling hack and slash games.
There are 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. All of which combines into a fluid and unique arcade game experience with sophisticated graphics and spectacular effects. The player will also be able to ride mounts, use war machines and spend his hard earned cash in towns all over the world of Sacred Citadel.
Sacred Citadel will also offer an engrossing multiplayer mode: as up to three players can join forces against their enemies in seamless drop-in/drop-out coop mode.
The events in Sacred Citadel will 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 is being developed by Southend Interactive.
