Risen 2: Dark Waters Features Pirates


It is tradition within the walls of Castle Shotgun to frown upon CGI trailers with a big bushel of frowns, but the trailer for Risen 2: Dark Waters has a number of frown-dissolving elements. 1) Pirates. 2) It's quite pretty. 3) Voodoo. 4) Firearms. 5) It means we're getting another Risen game, and it features pirates, firearms, and voodoo. All these things are backed up by the announcement from Deep Silver and Piranha Bytes, who say that the game will take place across a number of distinct islands, as your character seeks to persuade pirates to help him battle sea-monsters. The game will also apparently feature "dirty-tricks" in combat, which is either in keeping with the pirate theme, or worrying scatalogical. Either way, I'm on board.

Trailer below decks, etc. (Sigh.)
