People often wonder if nothing is sacred. Clearly not followers of the world of action RPGs, who’ll know that there’s two things which are Sacred. And now there’s a third, smaller thing: an Add-on pack called Sacred: Blood and Ice. VG247 noted that PC Games Hardware has the exclusive on it where you can hear the first news. It includes new levels, quests, areas, enemies, items and – waitforit – a chance to be a Dragonmage. OMFG! A Dragonmage. A bloody Dragonmage. At last. At… yeah, I’ve never played Sacred. Always being one to embrace bad wisdom, the first game’s famously bad cover-art put me right off. Any Sacred fans out there excited by the news and/or disgusted by my terrible evil prejudice against tiny-metallic-cup-bikinis?

The most recent, and unintentionally comedic, trailer’s beneath the cut, in case you can’t stomach that frighteningly large demo download. Features skellingtons and a man playing the drums, while another man sings into a magical microphone that looks like a big green willy.
