Sacred Citadel Announced; Sacred 3 Next Year

Deep Silver announces Sacred Citadel, an upcoming standalone single-player and co-op game set in the world of Sacred, the IP they acquired due to the demise of Ascaron Entertainment, saying this will be the "new standard for side-scrolling brawlers" when it is released for PCs and consoles via digital distribution next year. The Sacred World Website has screenshots and a reveal trailer, and the announcement calls the game a prologue to Sacred 3, which is also due next year: "The events in Sacred Citadel will act as a prologue to the next chapter of the Sacred story and will unveil an intriguing secret about the Seraphim that will directly relate to the action RPG Sacred 3, currently in development by keen games and to be released in 2013." Here's the full announcement:

Three warriors unite against an evil that threatens to enslave the once peaceful world of Ancaria. Lord Zane’s Ashen Empire has created an army of Grimmocs, modified Orc henchmen at war with the Seraphim. Only when these heroes unite and use their skills to support each other they will stand a chance!

Deep Silver today announced the side-scrolling action brawler Sacred Citadel, a new standalone title that is set in the rich universe of Sacred. Sacred Citadel will reinvent the familiar arcade feel of classic brawlers while setting a new standard for the future of side scrolling hack and slash games.

There are several playable character classes, such as the Safiri Warrior, the Ancarian Ranger and the Khukuri Shaman, each with a different skill set that can be further individualized through RPG features and collectible items. Each character will also have the ability to dual-wield two exchangeable weapons, use combo attacks and perform double jumps. All of which combines into a fluid and unique arcade game experience with sophisticated graphics and spectacular effects. The player will also be able to ride mounts, use war machines and spend his hard earned cash in towns all over the world of Sacred Citadel.

Sacred Citadel will also offer an engrossing multiplayer mode: as up to three players can join forces against their enemies in seamless drop-in/drop-out coop mode.

The events in Sacred Citadel will act as a prologue to the next chapter of the Sacred story and will unveil an intriguing secret about the Seraphim that will directly relate to the action RPG Sacred 3, currently in development by keen games and to be released in 2013.

Sacred Citadel will be out in 2013 as a digital download title for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system through PLAYSTATION®Network, through Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and through Steam and other ESD partners.

Sacred Citadel is being developed by Southend Interactive.

This obvious statement must be mentioned:

That trailer in no way informs us about Sacred 3, only Sacred Citadel.

I know, I know the announcement was for Sacred Citadel. Since you threw a side note that Sacred 3 will be out next year however, where's my reveal trailer for Sacred 3? Oh, and a screenshot that is NOT a blurry, black and white watermark would suffice nicely...thanks.
