Ascaron Entertainment announced today that a PlayStation 3 version of Sacred 2: Fallen Angel is currently in development, and will hit retail shelves this fall.
"Role-playing game enthusiasts have always been strongly represented on the PLAYSTATION® platforms, and we are delighted to offer a version of Sacred 2: Fallen Angel for the PlayStation® 3," said Heiko tom Felde, Managing Director of ASCARON ENTERTAINMENT GmbH. "We’ve been working on this version for more than a year, and can now proudly reveal it and its new features, to an entirely new audience."
This version of Sacred 2: Fallen Angel will feature enhanced graphics, 5.1 Channel Dolby™ Surround Sound and support drop-in cooperative play, as well as other multiplayer gaming modes via the Internet. The game also features two-player shared-screen gaming on one console – players simply pick up a controller, press "Start" and join their friends. Players can save their characters and use them in all game modes – allowing the same character to be used both in single-player or multiplayer modes, accumulating experience and loot seamlessly. The controls and interface have been developed from scratch for the PLAYSTATION 3 to ensure fluid and intuitive game play optimized for the platform throughout.
