Berlin, August 14th 2008 – Taking wireless gaming to new heights, SACRED 2 – Fallen Angel from Ascaron is set to deliver a true notebook gaming experience.
In the development of the notebook gaming technology in SACRED 2 – Fallen Angel, the focus has been on 3 main areas, namely core processes, graphic optimization and notebook-specific features.
SACRED 2, the much anticipated Action RPG, will bring Ad-Hoc gaming to the masses with Wi-Fi functionality and in-game displays. Ad-hoc is the term used for game modes offering players a very comfortable and simple way to play multiplayer games “on the fly”. Players with WLAN access will be able to quickly and easily create and join SACRED 2 wireless networks with other gamers in the vicinity.
With its strong focus on notebook compatibility and features, and particular attention to mobile and onboard graphics solutions, SACRED 2 brings quality gaming entertainment to the wider notebook market. Targeting the mobile games market, from the high end 512MB graphics setup to entry level 128MB onboard chipsets, SACRED 2 will set a new trend in this often overlooked sector of gaming.
All notebook functions are actively supported by the Intel Centrino Processor Technology.
In a statement on the progress of SACRED 2 – Fallen Angel for notebooks, Heiko tom Felde, Managing Director of Ascaron Entertainment GmbH, said, “Sales of mobile PCs have continued to grow, creating an expanding notebook userbase of hardcore gamers, casual gamers and general computer users. This means the PC platform has effectively become a multi-format market in itself. The feedback from focus groups has been excellent, and working closely with Intel we are in the enviable position of having a beautiful, exciting game that is accessible to everyone in terms of gameplay style, computer hardware and static or mobile location.”
Published by CDV (US) and Deep Silver (Europe) for Microsoft Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION®3 and PC, the highly anticipated AAA title will hit shelves from October 2008.
