Story
T-Energy has been flowing through Ancaria since time immemorial. This mysterious power forms the beginning of all life, is the source of all magic and the origin of all thought.

For a long time it was the angelic Seraphim who watched over the T-Energy and therefore over the fate of the entire world. They passed their knowledge on to the High Elves, so that they could benefit from T-Energy. T-Energy helped the realm of the High Elves to experience an incomparable boost of prosperity, making it the reigning culture in Ancaria.

A force which contains the enormous power of T-Energy carries great dangers. The children of Ancaria were not taught how to deal with this.


Soon there was a heated dispute among the High Elves as to how and to what purpose the T-Energy was to be used. Every party wanted to use the power. The dispute changed to irresolvable conflict, causing a rift between the High Elves. A terrible Civil War raged among the High Elves, resulting in all participants becoming losers. Their realm collapsed and with it the entire power structure.


Other peoples surged forward to pressure Ancaria and were ready to seize the power for themselves in order to take the place of the High Elves. Dispute covered the entire realm. Apart from the devastation of war, a further calamity intruded into Ancaria. The T-Energy went out of control!

The once creative power of the T-Energy now changed into something negative. Creatures and animals mutated beyond recognition, entire regions became un-inhabitable, cities and villages were destroyed.

The nobility as well as the clerical caste of the High Elves struggled to seize power over the High Elf imperium, so that they alone might control the T-Energy. The land is once more faced with war; a war that is much larger, with more far reaching consequences than all previous wars and battles.

Two thousand years before Shaddar the cry for heroes arises to avert this war and to regain control over the T-Energy. But who will answer it? Heroes who strive to prevent the world from lapsing into final chaos, or those who deepen it?

I still have to wait till the 5th for this but I have pre-ordered it.

I might be the high elf or the race that can have the sabre tooth as a mount.

Is there offline coop?

So you can play the main campaign with a friend next to you? If so, I might buy it. Also, if there's offline coop, how will the accounts be managed/saved?

Here's a review I'm watching...

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usZYkn9k5Wc"]YouTube - Sacred 2 - First Impressions[/ame]

Sadly, quite a few reviewers aren't too happy with this. It's a good thing I don't listen to them though.

In the XO version you can log in with different accounts, but at the moment the offline coop doesn't allow you to log-in to two accounts on PS3 (like Resistance 2 does, right?), because it's not "build-in" in PS3 as it is in XO. The devs have said they'll fix this, though, because they now know how to add it into the PS3 version as well. If you want to have the best experience, then you should probably wait for the patch and see if it'll actually fix the problem. One problem the patch should definitely fix is the one where you can't even trade stuff with your coop parter in offline mode. But yeah, if you're more interested in the offline coop, I'd say you should probably wait for a week or two to see if they'll release a patch that would fix at least the trading-problem.


And from those two it's perhaps a bit closer to a MMO game than GTA, but it's not quite like that either. It's really just a hack 'n slash game with a great amount of customization and a huge world with tons of missions to do.

Are you just copying it via ctr+c and pasting by ctrl+v?

Look at the bottom left of your screen, under the posting rules. Does it say something is off?

Thanks Azu. I can't buy a game now anyway. I'll wait untill mid June and if a patch isn't released, I'll get RE5 instead.

Tried the PC demo and it was average.

I definetly wouldn't buy it to play alone. Coop might be good but I won't be picking it up anytime soon. Especially with the technical issues in the console versions.

Dissapointing.
