Today, Deep Silver revealed more information about the RPG elements in their new upcoming game, Sacred Citadel. With these RPG elements plus unique weapon combinations, mounts, towns, a multitude of combat options and more aspects still to be revealed, Sacred Citadel offers unsurpassed depth in the genre of side-scrolling action brawlers.
Sacred Citadel offers a wealth of roleplaying features that help to spice up this action brawler. Players can battle with up to three characters out of a total of four, all of which can be leveled up and gain new skills. With Sacred Citadel, the different ways in which you can develop a character plays an important role for the whole group. The four characters you can play, such as the Khukuri Shaman, the Ancarian Ranger, the Safiri Warrior and a yet-to-be-revealed secret character, have their own set of awesome skills which grant them stronger class attacks depending on their experience level. These come to life when used in conjunction with each other.
Throughout the game the characters can pick up a host of new equipment: weapons that can be used to beef up their attack values or armour to improve their defense stats. The game also allows you to combine weapons such as a sword or mace to allow you the freedom to wield your weapon, or weapons of choice.
Bolster your character’s stash with the treasures that he finds on his mission and spend it at one of the many merchants in town. Players will also have a number of tasty potions that can be used at will, whether its to regain health or refill the power meter to unleash devastating special attacks. All of this creates great depth, diversity, and most important of all, freedom, letting warriors approach the numerous challenges that they will encounter on their quest to defend the lands of Ancaria any way they wish.
Sacred Citadel will be out in 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.
