Arrr me hearties, shiver me timbers, and other clichéd piratical utterings: set sail for Steam to grab a PC demo for Risen 2: Dark Waters, the naughtily nautical RPG sequel from Piranha Bytes. Risen 2 hoisted its mainsail in April but critics didn’t much like the cut of its jib; it docks on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in August. Also, swab the decks.

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.

If having a demented ship doctor named Bones in the game wasn’t enough to make you want Risen 2, maybe fighting off a Kraken will finally sway you.

You can see the ocean beast yourself rather briefly in the video below. Risen 2 is set for release in the UK April 27 on PC and May 25 on PS3 and Xbox 360.
