Sacred Citadel, a side-scrolling 2.5D brawler, is in development at Southend Interactive, publisher Deep Silver announced today.

It is set for release in 2013 on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC.

Sacred Citadel will offer three-player cooperative action with a variety of character classes to choose from, including the Safiri Warrior, the Ancarian Ranger, and the Khukuri Shaman. Players will be able to earn money and spend it on upgrades for their fighters, who can also use mounts and war machines to their advantage. Their enemies are Grimmocs, Orc henchmen modified by Lord Ashen to help him enslave the world of Ancaria.

Sacred Citadel is the next entry in the Sacred series; it will serve as a prologue to Sacred 3, which is being developed at Keen Games. The original Sacred came out on PC in 2004 and Linux in 2009, and was followed by a prequel, Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, which launched on PC in 2008 and on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2009. Deep Silver announced Sacred 3 at Gamescom 2010; it is currently slated for a 2013 release on PC and consoles.

Five screenshots and a trailer showing off Sacred Citadel's co-op combat and painterly visual style are available below.
