Sacred Citadel isn't just a goofy beat-em-up spinoff of Deep Silver's long-running Sacred series - turns out it's also an action RPG. When the game was announced last year, all we knew about it was that it featured co-op action and some groovy graphical flairs, but now we're seeing how Citadel relates to its big role-playing brother.
Players will be able to play as three characters at a time, picked from four character classes (including a Khukuri Shaman, an Ancarian Ranger, a Safiri Warrior, or an unrevealed class), and each has their own set of skills to be leveled up and unlocked. Additionally, characters can equip weapons or armor that can be stashed in town, or pop potions to refill either a health or a power meter.
Sacred Citadel, says Deep Silver, will serve as a prologue to the upcoming Sacred 3, and should be out for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and the PC sometime this year.
