Piranha wants to go back to its roots for Risen 3


10:00 PM on 07.23.2014



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 teaser trailer looks vaguely like Dante's Inferno

The official teaser trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords is out now, and it involves a lot of pretty CG animation and generic combat. It's got all the hallmarks of a traditional Western RPG: darkness, big swords, and copiou...more

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell was inspired by Disney movies

I've played and enjoyed all of the Saints Row games to date, but wonder how much longer this can last. How much more ridiculous can the series get, and even if there is room to up the insanity, do we even want that? Where Vol...more
