'Sacred Fire' Early Access in Fall, Demo Next Week, Voiced By The Witcher's Geralt - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on June 9, 2021 @ 6:00 a.m. PDT

Sacred Fire is a turn-based, psychological RPG about survival, power and hope, where players lead a band of resistance fighters in ancient Caledonia, taking on the invading forces of the Roman Empire.

Sacred Fire is not just about the outer, physical struggle for survival, but also about gaining political influence and the pursuit of inner balance.

Sacred Fire requires tactical thinking in a story full of risk-based choices and combat. Using Poetic Studio’s bespoke Emotions & Motivations storytelling platform, players can resolve conflicts by using a combination of smarts, skill, looks or empathy. To do so, they must build inner balance by coping with fear and anger. Only a stable and strong personality can win respect with bravery in combat and see through the traps set by cunning opponents.

Who will you become to stop the invading Romans?

Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Poetic Studio are excited to announce that a playable Sacred Fire demo will be available during next week's Steam Next Fest from June 16 to 22, allowing everyone to try a free demo of the game.

To celebrate the announcement check out the above new trailer featuring Doug Cockle, voice of Geralt in the Witcher franchise.

The demo features the first chapter of the story, which plays differently when you select a male or female protagonist. Writer Jennie Kong contributed to Sacred Fire’s story to create nuanced but meaningful differences between the two perspectives. The demo features Doug Cockle, Michelle Gonzo, and Ben Britton as important story NPCs.

Alongside the demo, Poetic Studio have announced that Sacred Fire will first come to Steam Early Access in Fall 2021. The first of three acts will be available on Early Access launch, with the other two being added as major free updates. Poetic aims to involve the community in the development of the game, fleshing out the story while incorporating feedback.
