Fantasy World Fantasy: Risen

The guys behind the Gothic games, Piranha Bytes, are having a crack at an entirely new – yet nevertheless rather familiar-looking – fantasy RPG. It’s called Risen, and it’s a medieval fantasy RPG. Nevertheless the developers claim that they are using the opportunity to do something fresh: “The newly won freedom is being utilized; a new mythology leaves room for new and original ideas.” The game will apparently have a “dirty and used” Mediterranean feel to it, and is set on a Volcanic island. So far the visuals do look pretty impressive – I’ve posted a bunch of environment trailers below. Whether the game will end up being a satisfying RPG, however, is far from clear: let’s see some in-game footage!
