I just came across this upcoming RPG, Sacrilegium, when I was looking for info on the Two Worlds games - it's by the same dev studio, Reality Pump Studios. Having just come off a replay of Vamipre the Maquerade Bloodlines and having loved the experience once again,  this game is certainly piquing my interest. It's set in modern day Romania and features a vampire themed story. Interesting enough it's slated for release on last gen consoles, so no doubt it's been in development for some time. The fact that it uses an updated version of the engine that the Two Worlds games used (Grace and Grace 2 engines) might explain why it's being developed for those older consoles.

I haven't played the Two World games, but are meaning to, so I don't know what to expect. The screen shots of this certainly look cool and intriguing. The game boasts these RPG elements:

  • "A dark, thrilling tale with a captivating atmosphere, full of twists and turns, surprises and rewards.
  • A constant feeling of tension, trepidation, and fear of the unknown and the unseen, combined with visceral action rewarded by the excitement of progression."

It's certainly a nice sized blip on my gaming radar.  icon_cool

I thought both of the Two Worlds games were terrible, so I'm not holding my breath on this one.

Did you play the console or PC editions? I ask, because I've read the PC games were much better. I just bought Two World Epic Ed. for $2 in the last weeks Steam sale, but haven't installed it yet. I checked out a number of forums for the PC version before pulling the trigger and the posting were mostly positive. I'm going to install it this week, so I guess I'll find out soon enough.

This looks kind of interesting from a new IP standpoint, but from what I can tell it's more of an adventure game than an RPG?

I really enjoyed the Two World games but to each his own. I just finished TW2 DLC and then went looking for the next project from Reality Pump as I like their stuff. So I found Sacriligium but what concerns me is it's been in developement for a long time, and no news has been posted on the site linked since 2012. So I don't know if it's still alive or not.

I noticed that as well and wondered if it might be due to a shift in development to next gen consoles. Their site is still logo'd with the 360 and PS3, but they may just still be there due to the site not having been updated for a while.

I'm playing Two Worlds Epic now and I have to say I'm enjoying it. For sure it has its warts like terrible voice acting, a non-customizable hotkey bar and too high a concentration of beasts, but the rest of the game seems fine. I love the way you can strategically herd around 1 foe against another, - honestly can't remember another RPG where you could pull that off. Last night I led a pack of wolves into some bandits' cave and a pack of zombies against a grom encampment. smile  Of course it has an element of ridiculousness and silliness to it, but that doesn't stop it from being fun.  icon_biggrin  I'd read the graphics were crap, but that certainly hasn't been my experience - and I'm playing this on my 2nd, ancient gaming rig with low specs. If Sacriliegium is of the same quality i'd be able to play it through and enjoy it.

I never really played the first Two Worlds, but I quite enjoyed the second one on the PC.

It's giving off a bit of Vampire: Bloodlines vibe, which is a good thing. Here's to hoping this does well.

It's like another RPG renaissance here.
