CGI Trailer Teases Risen 3: Titan Lords

Revealed earlier this year with a handful of screenshots, developer Piranha Bytes has released a CGI trailer for the upcoming action-RPG.

It's a CGI trailer, so you won't find any gameplay. Instead, you will find a scene with a knight in the middle of an intense battle with a dog-like creature. In a quote from project lead Bjoern Pankratz on the game's official website he says, “Like a carpenter with a hand-crafted 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."

Risen 3: Titan Lords is coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC August of this year.

  • Can we let last gen consoles go away already? I understand lots still have em, still do myself, but I'd like to start seeing the power of the new systems being taken advantage of more. I'm sure there games on the way, just can't help but think how bad ass dark souls 2 woulda been on new gen systems.
  • to bad the game will be nothing like that.

  • So I bit on this one and watched the video. I was not hooked. 26 seconds? That's not much of a trailer.
  • Risen 1 and 2 were on the cusp of being decent, but the combat was always so sketchy. I hope they beef up the gameplay mechanics for this title.
  • Still need to get off my butt and play the second one, loved the first one. This seems to be a love or hate type of series.
  • Risen 2 was pretty bad. Hope this one is better.

  • LOL that trailer was too brief...

  • Eh, I dunno. Piranha Bytes games were tolerable in a pre-Souls, pre-Skyrim, pre-Dragon's Dogma world, but now the ARPG genre has evolved in so many immensely compelling directions. I feel like most of their recent games are bogged down by genre legacy issues that other devs have long since ironed out.

  • Well, Risen 2 was so horrible, this is going to have to do a whoooooooole lot of work to get me even interested. I'll stay optimistic, cautiously.

  • Risen isn't horrible, I just don't understand how this game sells enough to warrant a sequel. Than again I didn't think The Witcher did either.
