By Stephany Nunneley, Thursday, 2 February 2012 14:43 GMT

Deep Silver and Piranha Bytes have released the third episode of the six part making-of series for Risen 2: Dark Waters. Posted below the break, the video discusses the overhaul of the game’s animation system, and well as some of the two to three thousand animations specifically created for the second installment. The video also touches upon combat animations and how it relates to combo attacks, and how for the first time in a Piranha Bytes game, full face animations were used. Risen 2 is out April 24 in the US and on April 27 in Europe for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
