‘The Witcher’ Star Featured in First Demo for Sacred Fire – Psychological RPG at Steam Next Fest

Master your emotions as you rise through the ranks of your tribe to fight back against the Romans later this year

Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Poetic Studio are excited to be taking part in Steam Next Fest 2021 from Wednesday June 16th with their anticipated Psychological RPG Sacred Fire.

The game has launched its first public demo for the event, alongside a new trailer featuring Doug Cockle, voice of Geralt in the Witcher franchise.

Watch how to break the Roman shield wall Caledonian style!

In Sacred Fire, you’re cast as a refugee hunted by Rome, your actions compromised by fear and rage. Build up your willpower to control story choices and master battle tactics. Outsmart opponents and gain allies. Wage war or strive for peace. End up a hero or an outcast.

The demo features the first chapter of the story, which plays differently when you select a male or female protagonist. Writer Jennie Kong contributed to Sacred Fire’s story to create nuanced but meaningful differences between the two perspectives. The demo features Doug Cockle, Michelle Gonzo, and Ben Britton as important story NPCs.

You will be able to play the demo here until the end of Steam Next Fest!

Alongside the demo, Poetic Studio have announced that Sacred Fire will first come to Steam Early Access in Fall 2021. The first of three acts will be available on Early Access launch, with the other two being added as major free updates. Poetic aims to involve the community in the development of the game, fleshing out the story while incorporating feedback.

More will be revealed in the months ahead – be sure not to miss any Sacred Fire news by joining our community:
