Piranha wants to go back to its roots for Risen 3

Promises 'favorite elements' from Gotchic and Risen 1

Piranha Bytes went off in a different direction with its pirate-centric Risen 2: Dark Waters and that didn't sit well with some series fans. For the next game, Risen 3: Titan Lords, the studio claims it has gone back to its Gothic and Risen 1 roots. To what extent? That remains to be seen.

Whether or not you agree with that promotional messaging, there's a good amount of in-game footage included in this overview video. I wouldn't take it as the end-all-be-all, but it should help clue you in to whether or not Risen 3 will hit the right notes for you personally.

Also, the way the narrator pronounces "Piranha" is nothing short of magical.

Risen 3's Demon Hunters faction sounds like the one to side with

Or just form an alliance with everyone for completion's sake

Risen 3's teaser trailer looks vaguely like Dante's Inferno

Teaser? I hardly...consider this a good teaser
