Risen was a pretty good RPG – if you played the PC version. The console port was…a little bit awful, but that should be different for the sequel; the console versions are being jointly developed instead of being ported – which means good news for fans of European RPGs like the Gothic series, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, and Avernum.
The pirate-themed sequel is coming soon – and it’ll be getting a bountiful Collector’s edition for fans to plunder.
Here’s what you’ll get if you order the Collector’s Edition:
• Making of DVD – interviews with the developers from Piranha Bytes who delve deeper into the production of Risen 2
• Soundtrack CD – The gripping tunes of the Risen 2 soundtrack will immediately absorb the listener into this fantastic pirate world
• double-sided poster – a large sized map of the game world on one side and an epic artwork featuring the hero and his crew on board their impressive ship
• Pirate Flag – with the skull motif from Risen 2
• Amulet – a pendant that every pirate and Risen 2 fan will be proud of
• The Art of Risen 2: Dark Waters – an exclusive collection of art cards on high quality-paper
• Three Risen 2 stickers
Those are some pretty sweet piratey incentives that pirates won’t be getting. Risen 2 is out on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 at the end of April. Here are some delicious screenshots to whet your appetites.
