Sacred Underworld is the add-on for Ascaron's Action RPG Sacred and requires the original Sacred or Sacred Plus game to play.

In Sacred Underworld the story of Ancaria continues and expands. Ancaria is the kingdom where the story of Sacred is set. The story follows the events after the conclusion of the original game, facing a new threat. Now the players fights off a new evil power that has once again plagued the lands of Ancaria.

To do so the game grants you access to two all-new characters besides the six in the original game: the dwarf and the daemon.

The dwarf uses more 'conventional' weapons like a flamethrower or a musket and has the ability to plant mines which is very useful in multiplayer. The daemon consists actually of three different characters - the battle, soaring and fire daemon. Each 'version' has it's own attacks, benefits and disadvantages and can be activated with one click. I.e. if you activate the soaring aura you can actually fly for a short period of time.

To play the add-on you need a character which has at least reached level 25. But even if you don't have one you can choose from the predefined characters that come with the game which are already level 25. Of course you can always begin a all new game in the old world of Ancaria even with the two new characters.

In the German version the player can meet a merchant named "Mick der Schnelle". He was implemented after Mick Schnelle, reviewer of German gaming magazine GameStar, complained about a lack of merchants in the beta version.
