Risen 2 DLC Already on Disc?

A forum thread on GameFAQs has indications that Risen 2: Dark Waters may be the latest game to ship with what's supposed to be future DLC included on the retail disc. The thread outlines the discovery, and spawns one of those heated discussions over the ethics of making content on the game disc dependant on a future. Thanks Blend Games.

Combat in Risen was awful, plain and simple.

I assume you didn't like the combat in G1 or G2, either? Because the combat in Risen was pretty much the same, except blocking with shields was a bit overpowered.

As always, the combat in PB's games is an acquired taste. I enjoy it (except when it was dumbed down in G3 and to a lesser extent, Risen 2) but I can see why others wouldn't. It has always had a relatively steep learning curve and a very low tolerance for user error, with fully-committed enemy attacks and player hit reactions usually resulting in the player's death.

None of that sounds especially appealing. And this is from someone who actually likes complex combat systems.

I haven't played any of the games though, so I can'/t swear to it. It just doesn't sound very fun.
