Sacred 3 coming summer 2014 to PC, PS3, Xbox 360

Co-op action role-playing game Sacred 3 will release on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 this summer.

Publisher and developer Deep Silver released a CGI reveal trailer along with the news on Wednesday. The trailer shows a team of heroes working together to ambush a monstrous convoy and rescue its prisoner.

Deep Silver brand manager Remy van Leeuwen said cooperation between the game's five revealed character classes in two-player local co-op and four-player online co-op was a guiding force in its development.

"The paramount development goal for Sacred 3 has been to create a seamless online and offline co-op experience," van Leeuwen said in a release. "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."

Deep Silver purchased the rights to the Sacred series after original developer Ascaron Entertainment entered administration in April 2009. Publisher Kalypso Media purchased the majority of Ascaron's other franchises and a majority stake in Gaming Minds Studio, which was founded by former Ascaron staffers.
