Sacred 2 - Preview @ GamingExcellence
The latest preview on view for Ascaron's upcoming action RPG, Sacred 2:Fallen Angel comes from GamingExcellence, with an emphasis on the MP design:
Whether playing single player or multiplayer, players will be using the same character is either mode, which is great for players looking for a little help on a particularly difficult quest or those who intend to play exclusively with friends.
However, character class plays a very large role in determining what players can play together. Sacred 2 allows players to choose a path of good or evil, and character class plays a large role in determining that path. The High Elf, Dryad, Shadow Warrior and Temple Guardian classes all have a choice in which path players will follow. The Seraphim class and Inquisitor classes are locked in to light and shadow paths respectively. Therefore, it’s not possible for a Seraphim player to join up with an Inquisitor, but aside from that exception, it seems that there are countless other possibilities for players to match up with each other.
The host of any game determines which quests parties will embark upon, and this mechanic extends to the deity system. The deity system is essentially a god that is chosen by the player, and each deity offers exclusive secondary quests and combat techniques to the player. Therefore, playing with other players who follow a different deity than you will allow you to unlock some of these quests and items without starting a whole character anew.
