+++ Pirate RPG adventure game available on 7th May 2014+++

Karlsruhe, 22 November 2013 – In a joint announcement withReality Pump, the TopWare Interactive AG has announced that the RPG adventure “Raven’s Cry” will be released on 7th May 2014. The screenshots released today depict a Caribbean that’s far removed from the postcards – giving you an insight into the brutal life of a man who leaves only scorched earth in his wake.

When you look into the depths of a chasm for long enough, that chasm will surely look into your depths …

Gloomy yet paradise-like images describe a world full of betrayal, greed and brutality. Accompanied by sinister cutscenes, the thirst for revenge leads the main character into an open, free-roaming world. “Raven’s Cry” is the story of Christopher Raven’s personal vendetta – and never forgetting that bloody vendetta, he still has to find ways to supply himself and his crew with all the necessary resources and information. Following the cry of the raven, he oversteps every moral boundary, drawing a bloody trail through the Caribbean.

Tadeusz Zuber, Head of the Development Team: “ The idea for Raven’s Cry gives us the opportunity to create our very own image of the Caribbean and piracy, far removed from all the family idylls. Christopher is tormented by his own demons and external threats – and our goal is to make these realistic enough to be actually ‘felt’ by the player. Christopher is a man trapped in the chains of his own demons – and the only way to break these chains, it seems, is the path of violence and revenge which he has chosen.

RPG elements with hook

“Raven’s Cry” offers various RPG elements, so there will be a complex game skill system and modifications for all the ships in the game, which can be designed to influence the reputation of the individual sailor with the groups and enemies in the Caribbean. Christopher himself will continue to evolve in the course of the story, unlocking new abilities and weapons. His characteristic hook – as seen in the images – plays a vital role, especially in brutal close combat. Regardless of where Christopher’s path leads him to obtain information or money, he will never become a shimmering hero who coincidentally saves the world. For him there’s only one way out of his suffering and that is death … either his own life or the lives of his enemies. The people around him are either for or against him.

It was important for us to drive Christopher’s sinister story on in a way that would enthrall players – but to give them more role-playing elements at the same time. He will constantly develop his character, his ships and his crew throughout the game and adapt it to his own personal style, which is somewhere between “Bad Ass and Bad Guy”, says Alexandra Constandache, CEO at TopWare.

Looking good, but because of a few recent games, I became allergic to savepoint system(s), so won't buy this one unless someone says I can save anywhere.

Taking Reality Pump's past track record into account, I would imagine you'll be able to save anywhere.

The question is, is it going to be better than Risen 2 or the recently released (and well recieved to say the least) Assassins Creed 4?

Highly doubt it would be better received than ACIV, but from the screenshots it's already lookng better than Risen 2 in terms of piracy.

Well that's a given their not Ubisoft, and don't have millions to throw away on the same game a dozen times. I'm more worried about the game because Reality Pump is now the second developer after Octane Games.
