One would assume that North America and other parts of Europe will also be getting a Risen 2: Dark Waters collector's edition of some kind, but for the time being, we're only left with a press release for a UK-specific CE that includes a "Making Of" DVD, the official soundtrack, a poster, a pirate flag, a variety of art cards, and more. Admittedly, it's more than a little disappointing to see that this is Xbox 360- and PlayStation 3-exclusive:

About Risen 2: Dark Waters
In Risen 2: Dark Waters, the Inquisition dispatches the hero to seek a remedy against the monstrous sea creatures that are interfering with the shipping lines, thus cutting off the islands' supplies. The pirates seem to know how to deal with these critters ... but they are hardly cooperative.
New gameplay elements add to the diversity of Risen 2; for example, players can also use firearms now. And, being pirates, adventurers can also employ special new skills called Dirty Tricks, allowing them to confuse or attack enemies in combat.
Deep Silver will release Risen 2: Dark Waters for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Windows PC, and PlayStation®3 on April 24th, 2012 for USA and Canada and on April 27th, 2012 in European countries.
