The second game in the Sacred series, titled Sacred 2 : Fallen Angel’s DRM has been cracked by RELOADED (a group in the warez scene). If you’ve been reading this blog you might know that RELOADED have been beating the copy protection of many PC titles released in 2008 even before the official release. Sacred 2 however took some time (7 days after NA release) to be cracked perhaps due to the custom version of SecuROM DRM embedded into the game. RELOADED have included a full ISO of the game and a modified executable (crack) with SecuROM removed in their release. In addition, they have also included the third DVD which can be used to install elite graphics textures exclusive to Sacred 2 : Collector’s edition.
And in the released .NFO, RELOADED leaves some interesting comments about ViTALiTY (a competing scene group who’ve been PROPERring RELOADED releases frequently) :
Note to ViTALiTY:
We would like to thank you for doing a proper of madagascar. Thanks to your 212x smaller crack it now runs 212x faster and we can run it on our Commodore 64.
We do fully rebuilt cracks when its needed and unlike ViTALiTY we can also crack more difficult games, such as Red Alert 3, Crysis Warhead, Dead Space or Sacred 2 - not only the most simple securoms like Madagascar, which have no special features and are about as hard to crack as UPX.
Anyway with the inclusion of the third DVD this game is a whopping 19.9GB in file size. Sacred 2 has got an aggregated score of 71.7% on Gamerankings.
Set 2000 years before the original, SACRED 2 features a vast 3D world marked by high quality graphics and attention to detail. Action RPG fans can also look forward to a number of sophisticated new features, as well as many of the popular SACRED game mechanics that return more refined and considerably improved.
