Deep Silver’s formally announced Risen 2: Dark Waters for consoles and PC.

First details and screens of the game came out over the weekend.

The game takes several years after the end of the original title, where “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 from the first game is now part of the “Inquisition,” and is sent to find out how “to stop the chaos caused by these creatures from the deep.”

Risen 2 will look to bring together the RPG gameplay elements of from Risen 1 as well as a “fresh theme and setting on a huge variety of themed island locales.”

No date yet. This was the game that Deep Silver teased at this morning.
