Risen 2: Dark Waters Released on GOG
Category: News ArchiveHits: 2573
Piranha Bytes' Risen 2: Dark Waters has been released on GOG, in two versions, one that only includes the base game, and one with all the DLC. Normally, the base version would cost $19.99 and the Gold Edition $29.99, but they're heavily discounted for release, so, should you purchase the title during the next 48 hours, you'll only spend either $7.99 or $11.99.
Risen 2 is one of Pirahna Bytes' worst game, but if nothing else, I have a soft spot for the pirate-y setting. Plus, as far as I know, this is the only DRM-free release of the title:
Set several years after the end of Risen, raging titans have devastated the world and pushed humanity to the brink of existence. Subsequently, monstrous creatures have risen from the watery depths of the sea and their attacks have brought all seafaring to a grinding halt.
The hero, now a member of the Inquisition, is sent out to find out how to stop the chaos caused by these creatures from the deep. His quest begins with rumors that the pirates who frequent the southern islands are the only ones who know a way to get rid of the creatures once and for all and end their reign of terror.
