RPGamer has put together a preview of Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, after seeing Ascaron's action RPG sequel firsthand at this year's Game Developers Conference.
Sacred 2 will have several mounts available to speed travel. These mounts include a horse, a tiger, a hellhound, and most excitingly, a dragon. The dragon was somewhat of a surprise, having been the result of three months of secret work by a developer, not shown to the presenters until just recently.
The mounts have very detailed animations. The tiger mount was easily the most finished at this point, and two of its high points were its independent ear twitching animations and wonderfully detailed fur effects. Also, mounts have abilities that can be upgraded as you progress, and the mount's characteristics will change depending on how your character levels up.
