This video, provided by IGN, does run at 60 FPS. And, to me, the changes are more noticeable – maybe because of the amount of time I played Halo 3, or maybe not. Overall, seeing any game have a bump in graphics and performance is most welcome.

It’s been another busy day for Deep Silver as they also had some HUGE news in terms of their announcement around the next installment of the famed Sacred franchise, Sacred 3. According to the press release received we will see the release on consoles and PC this summer. Sacred 3 takes players back into the fantasy realms of Ancaria, where they will need to band together in the hope of vanquishing the deadly tides of evil.
Taking time out from a ever busy schedule Remy van Leeuwen, Brand Manager of Deep Silver has the following to sayl
The paramount development goal for Sacred 3 has been to create a seamless online and offline co-op experience. By creating a game built around the central concept of co-op gameplay, we’re expanding the series to new audiences without compromising the rich lore and fantasy of the Sacred universe.
Sacred 3 features classic arcade Hack ‘n’ Slash action centered around drop in, drop out cooperative multiplayer for both offline (2 players) and online (4 players) play. The game brings back fan-favourite characters such as the Seraphim, Ancarian, Khukuhru and the Safiri, as well as introduces a new character, Malakhim. Each character class features its own unique skills and weapons which can be upgraded to match the player’s very own combat style. As they master the art of war, players will fight their way through enemy hordes and try to outshine their fellow companions on their way to become the greatest hero of all. The inclusion of mission stats and online leaderboards will continue to drive competition both locally and online. Victory Is Ours. Glory is Mine.
At this time there is no confirmed release date but as soon as we have one, we’ll share the details.
