If Risen 2: Dark Waters isn’t on your radar yet then I suggest you get that wonky bit of tech fixed. Coming after an original that was banned in certain countries (hi Australia) for copious swearing and the use of alcohol as a bargaining tool, Risen 2 is a pirate RPG that isn’t afraid to give you a bit of a kicking. Full of drunken NPC’s, attack parrots and coconut throwing, players take on the role of the Nameless Hero in a bid to save the world from rampaging Titans. With skills to learn ranging from swordplay to voodoo, it’s a bit of a different package with a difficulty level that will keep you firmly on your booted and buckled toes.

So, to the videos.There are FOUR brand new clips from the folks over at Deep Silver,showcasing various snippets of gameplay. We see Patty, one of the Hero’s companions, meet up with her estranged father, The Nameless Hero takes his pirate oath, learns a bit of voodoo from a priestess and makes use of his new skills on a tipsy pirate. There’s also plenty of the games combat system to be seen, a good handful of tropical locations and some ever so slightly out of sync voice acting.
