Sacred 3, the third iteration of the action role-playing series from Keen Games, is coming to PlayStation 3 on Aug. 26 following a short delay, publisher Deep Silver announced on the PlayStation blog. The game, which was first announced in 2012, was initially scheduled to launch on PS3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC last year. Sacred 3 was planned as a direct follow-up to the side-scrolling action brawler Sacred Citadel which was released to PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and Steam in 2013. PlayStation released new footage of the game this week showing in-game hack 'n' slash combat and drop-in co-op play. Sacred 3 is available for pre-order starting this week.
