'Sacred Citadel' (ALL) Introduces Ancarian Ranger - Screens

by Rainier on Feb. 6, 2013 @ 7:31 a.m. PST

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.


While the action is moving back and forth on the battlefield, no side seems to get the upper hand. That lasts until a group of fierce flying beasts swoop down on our three heroes from the high cliffs. The Khukuri Shaman cannot evade this attack and gets hit by one of the spikes, flung by one the beasts. The fluttering wings of these insects creates a terrible noise on the battleground. The Ancarian Ranger silently draws his bow, takes aim and rapidly launches his shots against these winged enemies, taking them down quickly.

The Ancarian represents the Ranger class in the group, dealing damage to enemies through ranged attacks with his malicious bow. His skills enable him to shoot off an arrow into the air that will wreak havoc among his enemies, raining fire down on them. But the Ranger is also a cunning gadgeteer, prolific in the creation of contraptions. His enemies will definitely be surprised by his ingenious trap box!

Although its glory has faded, the nation of Ancaria is still the dominant power in the world. No other nation can compete against the Ashen Empire, no other army can stand against the power of the Grimmoc forces.

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.
