Risen 2 - First Screens!
 
The first Risen 2 screens have been released with PC Games.de offering three shots. In addition, the full title appears to be Risen 2: Dark Waters, based on the logo at the Deep Silver forums and the game world has clearly advanced - one of the screens shows a victim being shot with a pistol.
Thanks to Porcozaur and srabuseen on our forums.
More information.

Yep, just update the newsbit quickly…

Garrett February 19th, 2011 12:52

these are artworks (even risen2.com says so)
btw - looks like pirates of the caribbean and the guy running over the bridge looks like a jack-sparrow-wanna-be ;-)

Alrik Fassbauer February 19th, 2011 13:00

To me, that's nice. :)

An RPG set within the "Pirates Of The Carribbean" setting ? I don't think anyone did that before … :lol:

Target-Artworks.

I'll just take it as that. These graphics are what they have worked on so far, but depending on peformance or further development some features may be gone by the time of release.

I like this approach. We've seen from screenshots of other games that when a game is early in development some features may get cut by the time of release. Resulting in accusations of the dev lying. Fact is features get cut when they don't work out (gameplay or performancewise).

So they are technically still screenshots taken from a game engine. Just a safeguard for when they don't represent the finished product.

I have difficulty understanding internet sarcasm. But if you were sarcastic the :lol: should be replaced with a ;) .

wtf, a rifle (scroll the island to the left)? in fantasy setting?
edit: just noticed a pistol mentioned in the article. anw, this might be quite a twist.

Dhruin February 19th, 2011 13:28

Alrik doesn't do sarcasm, so I'd suggest he meant it.

Personally, I think the pirate sub-plots in both Gothic 2: NotR and Risen were some of the best parts, so go for it.

Yeah, like Arcanum or Fable y`know…

JDR13 February 19th, 2011 13:36

Fable was the first thing that came to mind….and that's not good.

szokol February 19th, 2011 13:45

I want to be a sniper in Risen 2.
I hope there will be a full skill tree for this. :)

zadokAllen February 19th, 2011 13:46

I don`t see the problem with guns itself - just another ranged weapon. This is not gonna be AK 47`s after all.

Fable-like fate would be terrible, no doubt - but it`s just a screenshot.

DArtagnan February 19th, 2011 13:47

Looks good. I see no relation to Fable except for the rifle.

Fable has an obvious cartoon-flavor, which this doesn't really seem to have.

It looks very much like the first game in a pirate setting.

Unfortunately, it gives us next to no actual information about the game - so I think it's pretty useless.

You are right, we really dont have much to go on… The last game was an island setting and this seems to be of the same flavor. I like it, its moving away from the classic RPG setting and moving into a unique setting of islands, pirates, ect.

JDR13 February 19th, 2011 14:04

Of course it doesn't look like Fable graphically.

I just don't like the idea of guns in Risen. PB's explanation should be interesting at least…

Starwars February 19th, 2011 14:16

I would *love* a Risen game set in a very "tropical", warm, pirate-y type of setting. And it wouldn't take a huge nudge to have pushed the original Risen into that direction, hope they go for it.

ithilmir February 19th, 2011 14:17

First of all, Redguard came to mind when seeing these pics, so happy here.

Secondly, is it me, or are these "screenshots" actually artwork? The do seem like screenshots when small-ish , but in www.risen2.com, if you open them and look they are a LOT more like drawn artwork then in-game screens (the trees, the sea, the birds/sky especially stand out).

GothicGothicness February 19th, 2011 14:21

that is concept art… another thread which doesn't make a difference between concept art and screenshots…

DoctorNarrative February 19th, 2011 14:21

Like I said in the other thread I really love the bright, vibrant look and the pirate theme… good stuff. Time to shake things up!
