What is Sacred 2?

Sacred 2: Fallen Angel is from Ascaron Entertainment and is the sequel to the 1.8 million copy selling Sacred 1/Underworld. It has six beginning characters, hundreds of hours of gameplay, and a 3D atmosphere. The game offers single and multiplayer gaming, with PvE, PvP, and Co-op modes. This mmo PC gaming release is breaking into the console market, with releases to the XBOX 360 and the PS3 coming first quarter 2009.

But a game is only fun if your computer will play it. Does this game have the ability to run seamlessly on your machine? I’ve upgraded computers to play video games more times that I will care to admit (the latest upgrade being for Titan Quest that I’ve just recently started playing), but thankfully the new XPS will run this, and should run it well. Below are the minimums (if you just want to PLAY it and aren’t worry about it playing flawlessly) and the recommended specs your computer should have to hopefully net you a seamless way of playing.

Minimum System Requirements

  • 2.4 GHz processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • Graphics card 256 MB, from nVidia® GeForce™ 6800 or ATI® Radeon™
  • DirectX compatible sound card
  • DVD-ROM drive
  • 20 GB free Hard Drive (HDD) space
  • Windows XP, XP64, Vista, Vista64
  • DirectX 9.0d (included with game)
  • Dual Core 2.0 GHz processor
  • 2 GB RAM
  • Graphics card 512 MB, nVidia GeForce 8800 GTS, ATI Radeon HD 3870
  • DVD-ROM drive
  • Sound Blaster® X-Fi™(DirectX 9.0d [for XP] or DirectX 10.0 [for Vista] compatible), with surround speakers or headphones
  • Mouse with mouse wheel
  • 25 GB free Hard Drive (HDD) space
  • Microsoft Windows XP (32 / 64 Bit) with Service Pack 3 or Vista (32 / 64 Bit) with Service Pack 1
  • DirectX 9.0d (included with game)
  • Optional: DSL modem or network card for multiplayer games


The basic gamer I feel will have the minimums with no problems and should have the recommended stats without issue. Perhaps the video card they require is a little more than some of us, but it isn’t a game that is asking too much from its players. Good luck and happy gaming!
