If you spend your free nights sailing the seven seas, wearing a hook, and refusing to brush your teeth, you may want to keep an eye out for Piranha Bytes’ upcoming pirate-themed ARRRR-PG (sorry for that); Risen 2: Dark Waters.
This latest trailer showcases some of the game’s story elements, revealing the protagonist to be the hero from the first Risen, now a washed-up alcoholic called up to help unite the warring Pirates and fight the Kraken. Let’s be honest, if the game took any more inspiration from Pirates of the Caribbean, Disney would have to file a lawsuit. Nevertheless, the setting is unique in the world of games and Piranha has been known for making solid RPGs. I’d keep an eye on this one.
I’ll be doing an extensive preview on the title soon. Until then, grab a keg o’ rum and enjoy this trailer.
