The lights are on
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.

to bad the game will be nothing like that.
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.
