Hey, it’s official: Risen 2 is a video game. Deep Silver and Piranha Bytes confirmed the project earlier this week, shedding just a bit of light on the project.
Risen 2: Dark Waters, as it’s being called, is a true sequel to the original game, taking place several years after the devastation caused by the titans. This title specifically will sport more of a maritime twist according to the PR, and will boast several islands instead of just a singular locale, as was the case in the first game.
Not to miss out on the hottest trends, Risen 2 will feature a moral choice system and the promise of multiple, game-changing decisions. “Risen 2 maintains the most immersive features of the original Risen, with multiple approaches to every challenge allowing players to shape the game world based on their own decisions,” the press release reads. Perhaps the coolest part of the first Risen was its world. The NPCs and the enemies certainly didn't give me anything to write home about.
Here's a couple more images to take a gander at:
No word on an actual release date, but multiple platforms are being targeted. Risen 2 should see a release on the PC, of course, as well as consoles. The original Risen only made it to PC and Xbox 360, so it looks like the PS3 will be getting its own version as well this time around.
