Hmmm, what to make of this….
Sounds like they're going towards a more mainstream approach. I'm not surprised, if that's the case - as you can only make do with a small taste of success for so long.
I'm hoping it won't affect the always wonderful atmosphere/exploration aspects - and I hope the writing remains down-to-earth and plausible.
I found Risen to have an excellent melee combat system - if a bit lacking in variety. I think Gothic 3 has the best of the character development systems, actually - even if several skills were broken or buggy.
I'm hoping they're compensating the "actiony" combat with more variety in terms of how you build your char.
BTW, was the beta access available to everyone?
