Console owners won't be able to take to the high seas in Risen 2 until July 31, but PC players can start doing pirate-y stuff tomorrow. Why not get in the mood with this here launch trailer?

Risen 2 is a fantasy RPG from Piranha Bytes, the creators of the Gothic series. You play the game as a one-eyed, unnamed pirate, taking on all sorts of sea monsters and scallywags. Some abysmal combat sinks Adam's review score a bit, but it sounds like there are still some interesting elements in the game. Here's the trailer.

Still not sold? Did we mention this game has Krakens?
