With an all-new pirate-based theme, Risen 2: Dark Waters aims to combine the most loved classic RPG gameplay mechanics of the original Risen with a fresh theme and setting on a huge variety of themed island locales. A third-person role-playing game set in a dark and gritty universe, Risen 2: Dark Waters 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. These choices will serve to unlock new paths, features and additional skills for the character, together with a highly interactive environment and a full day/night-cycle affecting countless aspects of the game world.
- Unique, tropical fantasy setting in an open world complete with firearms, dirty tricks and a brand new situationally-appropriate magic style.
- Includes completely overhauled, sophisticated tech providing vastly improved high-res texturing, brand new weather, water and light/shadow effects, a fully revamped character animation system and an exhaustive NPC character model design which greatly reduces the chance of "clone" NPCs.
- One of the most intense, immersive game worlds ever created.
- Every decision made has a consequence - it may change the character's skillset, NPC relationships, or even potential questlines.
- Several unique islands, all lovingly designed by hand with no copy and paste set pieces, encourage exploration and adventure while the player hunts for secret treasures and hidden areas.
