Risen 2 Patch Adds Dodge

Steam News has details on a new patch that's now available for Risen 2: Dark Waters, the action/RPG from Piranha Bytes. This includes bug fixes, as well as player-requested defensive enhancements, as the patch notes mention: "Most monster attacks can be blocked now," and: "Player has the ability to dodge during combat." On a related note, has word on a new mod that fixes a SpeedTree bug to fix "the trippy-annoying foliage grow-ins" in the game.

I'm about 30 hours in and really enjoying the game. The added dodge is nice but I wasn't having too many issues after resetting the difficulty back to medium. Maybe I can bump it up again now.

I am a big fan of every PB game I've played (didn't try Gothic 3 though due to the horrible comments about it) and Risen 2 is as good as all the others. I dig trying to work my way deep into areas I shouldn't be in yet and hoping to come up with some nice loot and this game doesn't disappoint.

I've been meaning to say something about this game since I read Ray's comment on the big Risen 2 thread a few days ago, saying something along the lines of, Pyranha Bytes is a disgrace and should be shut down as a studio. I completely disagree. I love RPGs and seem to get into PB games more than anyone's (Morrowind not withstanding). I can understand some players not liking the controls of Gothic 1, or the combat deficiencies of Risen 2 but on the whole, the PB games always seem to scratch that exploration itch I have.
