Sacred 3 coming August 26th, gameplay trailer reveals

Deep Silver first announced it was working on Sacred 3 back in 2009, and it's finally (really!) coming out this summer. In fact, it'll be out on August 26th, the publisher has announced.

The hack 'n' slash game boasts drop-in, drop-out co-op, with two players locally and up to four online. Together, you'll murder monsters and save a kingdom or something. Several classes are on offer, with upgradeable skills and weapons.

At launch, Sacred 3 will include the Malakhim class as well as the Underworld Story DLC. In Underworld, players have to forge their way to the top of a mysterious tower where they have to confront the Black Seraphim from Sacred 2.

Sacred 3 is headed towards PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Here's the new gameplay trailer:
