Deep Silver and Piranha Bytes have released the fifth episode of its six part making-of series for Risen 2, which lays out the different fighting options in the game. It also explains how fighting is just one of the options, and how different styles – such as avoiding the fight altogether – can solve in-game quests just as much as brawn. Players will be able to sheath their swords and in its stead use voodoo to accomplish their goals, and even a few dirty tricks here and there. It’s all very interesting and detailed in the video diary below. Risen 2 is set for release in the UK April 27 on PC and May 25 on PS3 and Xbox 360.
