Deep Silver and Piranha Bytes have announced Risen 3: Titan Lords today, and released a very short teaser trailer for the game. Risen 3: Titan Lords will be a sequel to Risen 2: Dark Waters, and sees a world that “is abandoned by all gods and suffers from the Titan Wars when a new threat rises from the soil.” Players will take the role of a young warrior who is attacked from the shadows, and deprived of his soul. You will set out on your quest to retrieve your soul, and will work with various guilds and groups to retrieve it.
Bjoern Pankratz, Project Lead at Piranha Bytes, wrote the following about the game on it’s information page “Like a carpenter with a hand-crafted piece of furniture, we put together the story, the characters and the landscape until it all fits and the player has the possibility to discover things all around the place. You can try out and find things that others might not. Exploration is the key to our game.”
Surprisingly, Risen 3 will not be coming to next-gen for it’s August release. It is only releasing on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. I’m sure we’ll be learning plenty about this game as the days go on, especially with E3 just two months away. If you want to get in on the Risen franchise now the first game and it’s pirate sequel are $9.99 and $19.99 on Steam respectively.
