Wait, this was suppossed to have offline coop too, right? Why isn't it said on the key features? Did they remove it? :S

First they said 4 players offline, then only 2 offline-online, and now just 2 online?

god damn it, if ever a game needed local co-op it's this. baulders gate on ps2 had it, why not this?

hopefully it does have local co-op. getting sick of all these games opting for impersonal online co-op and no local suport...what about the guys who actually hang out with real people?

One of the cool things about Sacred 2 is that it supports both local and online four-player co-operative play, so you can load up your saved character, invite a friend to do the same and go traipsing around Ancaria jacking fools and getting paid. IGN Xbox editor Erik Brudvig and I took our characters on the road for a spell and found that the two-player local co-op works well overall, although there are still some issues with menu commands and inventory management, and these are brought into sharper relief when there are two players on the screen.
Someday will certainly get this for PC. Was cool from the demo, i just got many games to play now :/

"both local and online four-player co-operative play"

I bet it's 4 players online and 2 offline, they always use very confusing sentences when talking about multiplayer in games.

Really? Nothing can compare to Diablo's world, atmosphere, style, story, characters, etc. I mean, this game has A) a cheaply made engine (it just look sawkward, it doesn't have to be impressive, just more pleasing and interesting to the eye) B) an effing gyrocycle (which is just like, wtf??) and C) high fucking heels. Excuse my french. But we all know D3 owns this. Looks pretty cool though.

I feel you there, but a lot of it is just wanting to push the consoles, it can be hard to do local. No networking, but performance management can be a right bitch.

Patched PC version is a whole bunch of fun indeed, if a little easy to make an overpowered character especially when you get the weapons from Blind Guardian
