Risen 2: Dark Waters is a sequel to Piranha Bytes’ successful fantasy RPG Risen. The newest one is being published by Deep Silver and sets the game several years after the conclusion of the first game. The world is devastated by raging titans and monstrous creatures rising from the depths of the sea. People can no longer travel on the open seas safely and the Nameless Hero must find a way stop these creatures.
This video from the developers discusses some the creative inspiration for the game and shows a bit of how the game will work. It is in German with dubs and subtitles and they will talk about pirate a lot. The developers also show off some of the world building and what they wanted the harbors and jungles of Risen 2 to feel and look like.
Risen 2: Dark Waters is due out in 2012 for Xbox 360, PC and Playstation 3.
