Sacred 2: Fallen Angel demo available for PC: This game has skeletons in it!

8:09 PM on 09.29.2008 // Jim Sterling


As you might have been able to tell, there are certain games that I take on as pet causes, giving them coverage that may go above and beyond my usual duties. Most of them look like rubbish to normal people, and usually turn out to be rubbish, but there is a method to my madness.

Sacred 2 has joined my list of favored up n' comers, but it doesn't look rubbish. It has skeletons in it, and skeletons give you an automatic pass onto my special list. 

Skellingtons aside, the game is looking pretty hot and definitely deserves considering if you're a fan of the western-style RPG, or as we like to call them -- Roundeye Roleplayers. All of this pointless rambling brings us to the actual news, which is that a single-player demo of Sacred 2 is now available for download. Here's what you can try:

  • The mighty Seraphim, one of the six playable and powerful characters featured in the full game.
  • Explore the expansive and beautiful High Elf region, one of twelve regions that will be available in the full game and comprise the more than 22 square miles of Ancaria’s lush environment.
  • Play through several quests in the Light campaign and encounter amazing mythical beasts, while the full game features parallel Light and Shadow campaigns encompassing hundreds of hours of gameplay and over 500 quests.
  • Level up the Seraphim and customize her combat arts to unleash furious attacks on her enemies (the demo will allow leveling to 10, while the full game allows characters to over level 200).
Sound like something you want? Download the demo and tell us what you think. I've been after a good Roundeye RPG since Oblivion, so here's hoping that Sacred 2 can fill the void. Skeletons are always a good sign.

I have now played all 3 Witcher games. My verdict: Witcher 1 - alright, aged badly, lots of sex. Witcher 2 - good, very short, not much sex at all. Witcher 3 - Excellent in every way.

I really wish MGO had been implemented with free-roam gameplay PMC (clan) setup instead of the standard matchmaking. Imagine roaming bands of PMC's opposing each other on the battlefield. How sexy would that be?

Added a humble code to my steam account when I already had the game. Purely because the soundtrack was attached. Now I see it on 2 friends wishlists. They must never know.

What's up with taking your phone or a magazine to the toilet? Y'all need more fibre in your diet, why should a toilet visit take more than 2 minutes? What are you people doing with your asses.

It feels like each day I get up, do the rounds of my bookmarks, and am immediately brought down by kneejerk hate: new stuff, old stuff, last nights stuff, 2moros stuff, a game, a film, TV. Critical thinking is fine, but dang, pure cynicism's winning :(

Metal Gear Online, Day 2. The maps in this game are amazing. Try out all 3 classes, because they're all pretty different. Really getting the hang of the game now.

I love how Final Fantasy Record Keeper is making a big deal about being able to unlock FF XII's Vaan. I do get to unlock Ashe though, so that's cool.

Next year, we get a new Fire Emblem game, a sequel to SMT IV, Persona 5 and people are STILL getting their knickers in a bunch about SMTxFE? I can summon the bisexual interdimensional stalker dark mage, Tharja, in that game. I am sold on all of this.

DMC4:SE, I've had fun playing this game again. Surprised I remembered so much of it though, sucks we'll probably never see Nero and his badass Devil Buster again. I still love that shit.
