Risen 2: Dark Waters Trailer

A semi-recent trailer from Risen 2: Dark Waters features the developers from Piranha Bytes discussing their upcoming pirate-themed action/RPG sequel. The clip is partly shot in their offices and partly on the set of Gilligan's Island, using translations and subtitles to help us understand the German discussion of creating the game world. Thanks GamesDot.org.

Yes! I'm looking forward to this too. I think Piranha Bytes, Larian and possibly CDProject (although I'm not a fan of the Witcher) are the only hope for modern RPGs. Sorry, I think Bethseda tanked years ago and make boring, broken single player MMOs. I don't know what happened to Bioware, I wish they'd make a good game again.

This was mostly about the graphics and world design but what alarmed me is that they are procedurally generating it, then fitting in the rest. The beauty of the Gothics and Risen is that they are lovingly hand-crafted and every hill, ledge, cave put there with design and intent, every encounter, every piece of loot. It's not random and it shows, it makes a huge difference to the experience.

I hope they don't streamline it too much (and I know they will) but still keep the challenge and fun alive. I really, really hope they don't go with the flow and make it easy and boring. We have enough of those games already.
