We've been waiting a long time for Sacred 3, and it looks like that wait is getting snipped by a few weeks. Deep Silver has announced the game will be arriving in early August, instead of the previously announced date of August 26.

The game will be coming to PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on August 5. In addition to revealing the new release date, the publisher says the playable Malakhim character will be available as a pre-order bonus. Those who pre-order from GameStop – Game Informer's parent company – will receive that character as well as an extra mission pack and exclusive weapon spirit.
