New Release Date for Console Version of Risen 2

New Release Date for Console Version of Risen 2

by Jason ChestnutApril 23, 2012

It looks like Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players will have to wait a little bit longer to lift their anchors and set sail upon the monster ridden seas of Risen 2: Dark Waters. Deep Silver has announced that the Piranha Bytes developed pirate-themed action RPG will be released on consoles on July 31 in North America and August 3 in Europe. The console version will also include an additional episode entitled “The Air Temple”. In an adventure separate from the main storyline, the hero goes on a quest to discover a lost temple, a source of powerful air magic, on the mysterious Storm Island.

Risen 2: Dark Waters takes the complex open world concept of the original Risen and puts a swashbuckling pirate spin on it. What we’ve seen so far has been graphically impressive, from lush tropical jungles,  crystal clear open waters to detailed galleons and a large cast of swarthy bucanneers. You once again take on the role of the nameless protogranist of the original game, now a broken down shell of a man in the port town of Caldera, the supposed last bastion of humanity. Caldera’s ships are constantly assaulted by terrible sea monsters and a cadre of pirates may hold the key to defeating them. Its up to you to find and infiltrate this group of pirates, learn their secrets and save Caldera. Swordfighting, firearms, cunning and even a little bit of magic in the form of “voodoo” are all at  your disposal as you level up and customize your character’s traits to suit your style of play.

Risen 2: Dark Waters will be out on PC first on April 27. A full review of this third person action RPG will be posted based on that version around that date. The console versions for both Xbox 360 and PS3 will be out in North America on July 31 and in Europe on August 3

    Bullet Software keeps hoping to notify me that the game doesn’t function for a laptop computer just due to the fact “it’s a PC game not a laptop game” but I have many PC video games which do operate just fine on my laptop computer and 1 of which has the same minimum processor demands for the game to run:

    Loki: Intel Pentium4 2 GHz
    Gothic 3: Intel Pentium®4 2GHz

    The mentioned organization informed me “the recreation should not run on a Laptop” just simply because of what they mentioned the “system requirements” were: 3GHz.
    Now if the recreation has explained on the back again of the box Minimal REQUIREMENTS: Processor: Intel Pentium®4 2GHz I am sure the game would operate on a Laptop as nicely as a PC.

    People, remember to notify me what do you think?

    NOTE: Also they mentioned they refunded me in full and are sending me a alternative even although I told them about the disc obtaining a dodgy mark like ring all the way close to the laser facet of the disc and they never want to know something about the simple fact that the video game business alone (the people who made the game) had a lawsuit against them since of obtaining supporters hopes up too high and also the video games supporters, Piranha Bytes had ceased supporting the game.
    My recreation says “JoWood Productions Presents A Piranha Bytes Game” (which I just explained that Piranha Bytes had a poor popularity when making the recreation and selling it when it was nevertheless incomplete)
    EDIT: I just acquired an electronic mail from them saying: “Many many thanks for your email

    I comprehend that Mark Hill refunded the preliminary buy in total at a reduction to ourselves. There is no need to have to return the item.

    I realize that Sarah Wright has sent you a totally free item. This merchandise was tried and sent by our warehouse and was collected with our mail sacks at 1.00 pm.

    We respect your opinions.

    Kind regards

    They explained they regard my opinions when they completely ignored what I have explained about the complete sport and what went wrong with it etc and also ignored what I mentioned about the video games I have which are also for PC but nevertheless work on a Laptop.

    and also they said “There is no need to return the item” wtf do I do with the video game now? I suggest they are sending me a “replacement” but I want RID of the damn thing completely!

While the file itself has no problem and loads on the second PS3 effectly, the PS3 says that saved file does not belong to you therefore you can only play on it but cannot save over it OR save it as another file on the new PS3.

  • whites are not the only racists

    I am having problems connecting to my network with my xbox 360. The other 3 computers in my house have no problems connecting to the internet. The cable I am using for the xbox 360 to connect it to the modem works with the computer, but not the xbox 360. It worked with the xbox 360 a few months ago, though. If someone could help me, It would be very much appreciated.

    My girlfriend and I are looking for any good co-op games essentially, we like to see character customization and leveling up. We have two computers so any PC games with online are welcome as well but consoles are preferred.

    I am talking about games where you actually control your character in real time. I am not talking about turn based RPGs. Some examples of Action RPGs are Monster Hunter, Odin Sphere, and .hack G.U..

  • jag43216

    I’m looking for a list of action RPG (I don’t want turn based) games, like Crusaders of Might and Magic, or Dark Souls etc.
