'Sacred Citadel' (ALL) Unveils Co-Op Mode And Mounts - Screens

Sacred Citadel is a side-scrolling action brawler that is set in the rich universe of Sacred, reinventing the familiar arcade feel of classic brawlers while setting a new standard for the future of side scrolling hack and slash games.

Three warriors unite against an evil that threatens to enslave the once peaceful world of Ancaria. Lord Zane’s Ashen Empire has created an army of Grimmocs, modified Orc henchmen at war with the Seraphim. Only when these heroes unite and use their skills to support each other they will stand a chance!

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.

In the co-op mode of Sacred Citadel, players must skillfully combine the abilities of their characters to hold out against the onrushing enemy hordes and to support each other. Players can choose between the Khukuri Shaman, the Ancarian Ranger and the Safiri Warrior and a yet-to-be-revealed secret character. Each of the four classes in Sacred Citadel possesses its own set of special attacks. The variation depends both on the experience level and the amount of power collected through the use of different combos.


In Sacred Citadel, the heroes will be able to snatch away different mounts from their enemies and use them and their varied special attacks for their own purposes. But beware, for as quickly as a player can make use of a mount, it can be taken away from him again!

The tusked bull mount, for example, can ram an attacker and whirl him into the air, as well as charge into a group of enemies and trample everything in his way. Besides mounts, Sacred Citadel also features war machines to ride on, adding even more variety to the multiplayer experience.

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.
