New Risen 3 Screenshots

Piranha Bytes’ heir to the venerable Gothic series and niche semi-open world European CRPG Risen gets its 3rd installment this August, even though information has been a bit thin.

Regardless, some info does trickle out, like these new screenshots which hit the web yesterday on the 24th of May. Though it uses a modified version of the Risen 1 engine, the game is, as evident by these screenshots, every bit as gorgeous as the previous entry.

Risen 3 will have the player assuming the role of an entirely new hero as well as focusing more on a medieval setting than the pirate-theme that acted as the basis for the second game.

Losing his soul in battle with a shadow, the player will have to enlist the aid of the banned mages to help against the rampaging Titan Lords. A very well maintained list of the game’s known features can be found at the fan forum World of Risen.



Carl is both a JRPG fan and a CRPG'er who especially loves European PC games. Even with more than three decades of gaming under his belt, he feels the best of the hobby is yet to come.
