Sacred 3 ($49.99)
Sacred 3 is an arcade Hack ‘n’ Slash game for up to four players, set in the war for Ancaria. Choose from legendary heroes and fight together against the rise of evil. You will face hordes of grimmocs, brute beasts, legions of mercenaries and undead wizards. Develop your character’s skills and abilities and band together to use powerful co-op abilities and tactics. Victory is Ours. Glory is Mine.
Sony has dropped eight new games onto the PlayStation Store, so get for another punching, platforming, and shooting good time. This week’s big new releases include…
- Killzone: Shadow Fall Intercept (PS4), a standalone shooter based on the “Intercept” co-op mode from Killzone: Shadow Fall.
- Ultra Street Fighter IV (PS3), is the fourth (and presumably final) update for Street Fighter IV. It adds five new fighters to the game as well as a variety of balance tweaks.
- The Swapper (PS3/PS4/Vita Cross-Buy), is this week’s “PlayStation Store Play” selection and it tasks players with navigating a sci-fi world by cloning themselves into new locations.
- Metrico (Vita), is another puzzle platformer, but this one is set in a world of charts and graphs.
- Sacred 3 (PS3), the latest entry in the hack and slash franchise, which has shifted over to a new developer in Keen Games.
It’s name isn’t quite as ridiculous as Super Duper Street Fighter IV, but Capcom will release Ultra Street Fighter IV this week. The publisher claims that PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 game will be the final Street Fighter IV update, but you can never can tell with Capcom.
Also this week, Deep Silver will release the action RPG Sacred 3 for the PS3 and and Xbox 360. In a surprising reversal from the usual “delay delay delay” that most game publishers specialize in, the release of Sacred 3 was actually pushed up multiple times. You gotta hand it to Deep Silver, they seem to have their stuff together.
Finally this week, the video game adaptation of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie will be released exclusively for the 3DS by Activision. The trailers for the new movie frighten and confuse me and I don’t think I even knew this game existed until last week sometime. But if the movie somehow turns out to be a shell of a surprise, we can all go back and check out the tie-in game.
Take heed fellow video game fans, the month of July is almost over! It’s been a rough few weeks for the retail release report, but 2014’s seventh month looks to go out with a bit of a bang. That’s because Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Remastered, a PS4 re-release of the 2013 blockbuster, will be available in stores this week. If you haven’t experienced the story of Joel, Ellie, and their fight to survive a post-apocalyptic America yet, now’s the time.
Also available this is the PC version of Sacred 3, the latest entry in the action RPG series that began in 2008. Sacred 3 will also be available on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in early August.
Finally this week, WB Games and TT Games will bring Lego Ninjago: Nindroids to the 3DS and Vita. The game sequel, which is based on the animated series Lego Ninja Rebooted, will add a sci-fi twist to the popular Lego line.
August will be better, I promise.
Deep Silver’s Sacred 3, the latest addition to the Sacred franchise, will be dropping into your hands sooner than you thought. The publisher has bumped up the release date to August 5. Sacred 3 – which will be available for the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 – also has new weapon enhancements, called Weapon Spirits, which you can see in action in the video above. “These upgradable and interchangeable weapon augmentations, each with their own unique buffs and debuffs.” Some of them “even take the form of previous characters from the Sacred franchise,” giving fans even more to look forward to.
Get ready to spend some time in Ancaria on August 5 for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Hit the jump for the full press release. (more…)
“Victory Is Ours. Glory Is Mine,” reads the tagline for Sacred 3, the latest installment in the Sacred franchise. Publisher Deep Silver announced that the game will be released this Summer on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The game has drop-in, drop-out co-op multiplayer both local (for two players) and online (for four players).
Remy van Leeuwen, Brand Manager of Deep Silver, said, “The paramount development goal for Sacred 3 has been to create a seamless online and offline co-op experience… By creating a game built around the central concept of co-op gameplay, we’re expanding the series to new audiences without compromising the rich lore and fantasy of the Sacred universe.”
The game will also feature recurring characters from the series, including the Seraphim, Ancarian, Khukuhru and the Safiri. Return to Ancaria this summer on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
