Deep Silver have come out with a new trailer for the third instalment of the Risen series, it shows off the vast and detailed world as well as showing off how the game handles when traveling and when you’re locked in combat with the beasts that reside in the world.
This game looks promising as it looks as if they are taking more of a Gothic approach to this game because it’s the same developers of the Gothic series. The first two games they were not the best litter with low resolution textures and buggy gameplay mechanics.
What I like about Risen is that they don’t stick to the same generic fantasy locales although they’re playing it safe this time with the standard high fantasy setting. The first one was set in a Japanese style island and the second game was a pirate adventure completely unconnected to the original, it shows creativity and originality. Let’s hope the game will be a good swan song to Xbox 360 and PS3.
Risen 3 releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on the 15th of August so get ready for adventure.
