Risen 3: Titan Lords will be released in August, Deep Silver has revealed.
The Piranha Bytes-RPG will be released on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. More details are expected to be announced this week via PC Games magazine.
According to the press release, Risen 3: Titan Lords “pulls the player in to a handcrafted role-playing world full of rugged charm where every decision changes the course of the story.”
Like previous iterations in the series, Risen 3 will contain “freedom to explore” the world which promises to be “diverse, authentic and full of life.”
“Like a carpenter with a handcrafted piece of furniture, we put together the story, the characters and the landscape until it all fits and the player has the possibility to discover things all around the place. You can try out and find things that others might not. Exploration is the key to our game”, says Bjoern Pankratz, project lead at Piranha Bytes.
Here’s the game synopsis:
The world of Risen 3 is abandoned by all gods and suffers from the Titan Wars when a new threat rises from the soil. A young warrior is attacked from the shadows and deprived of his soul. He sets off to reclaim what is lost amidst the darkness that is spreading throughout the world.
The banned Mages could be powerful allies on his quest. To get their help, he needs to find the Mage sanctuary on Taranis, also known as the Island of Thunder. Protected by the Guardians, the Mages search the mines of Taranis for crystals loaded with magic energy. Will the player join the Guardians to get in contact with the Mages? Or will he choose one of the other guilds in Risen 3 to reach his goals?
