Sacred 2 for PS3 and 360 in June

Without demo, says Deep Silver.

Deep Silver plans to release Sacred 2 for PS3 and Xbox 360 on 5th June.

The console versions have been a long time coming; Sacred 2 launched on PC late last year. And since then there have been plenty of updates - some fixing bugs while others added new content and features.

Deep Silver told Eurogamer this afternoon that these "should" all be included on the PS3 and Xbox 360 retail discs. Future patches will apparently be added through routine title updates.

Sacred 2 is a bread-and-butter fantasy action-RPG that has lots of loot, lots of abilities and lots of baddies. A Diablo clone, in other words. And probably the best example of one since Titan Quest.

The PS3 and 360 conversions will be given no demo, sadly, as Deep Silver told us this "wouldn't benefit" and may even harm people's perception of the game.

Look out for our console review closer to June, or absorb our Sacred 2 PC review now for an idea of what to expect.
