Deep Silver has just released the first gameplay footage for the fast-paced hack 'n' slash sequel, Sacred 3, which features drop-in/out multiplayer for up to 4 players online, and 2 players locally.
This gameplay footage shows a selection of "unique character classes" in action, taking on waves of enemies. Sacred 3 is due in late August for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
Sacred 3 will also include the Malakhim class and the Underworld Story DLC at launch, which features an enemy from Sacred 2 - the Black Seraphim - atop a mysterious tower.
"The game brings back fan-favorite characters such as the Seraphim, Ancarian, Khukuhru and the Safiri, as well as introduces a new character, Malakhim. Each character class features its own unique skills and weapons which can be upgraded to match the player’s very own combat style. As they master the art of war, players will fight their way through enemy hordes and try to outshine their fellow companions on their way to become the greatest hero of all."
