Additionally, the console versions of Risen 2: Dark Waters will now offer extra content on both platforms. They contain the episode “The Air Temple” which features several hours of additional gameplay. In this sub-plot the hero embarks on a quest to discover the lost temple, source of air magic. When he hears rumors that his old acquaintance Eldric has been seen in Antigua the hero knows that he needs to pick up his trail in order to find Storm Island, where the Air Temple is located.

In Risen 2: Dark Waters, the Inquisition dispatches the hero to seek a remedy against the monstrous sea creatures that are interfering with the shipping lines, thus cutting off the islands’ supplies. The pirates seem to know how to deal with these critters … but they are hardly cooperative. New gameplay elements add to the diversity of Risen 2; for example, players can also use firearms now. And, being pirates, adventurers can also employ special new skills called Dirty Tricks, allowing them to confuse or attack enemies in combat.

Risen 2: Dark Waters for Windows PC remains on its charted course. It has already gone into production and will lift anchor on April 27, 2012. The game will be released exclusively via digital distribution for PC users in North America, and as a retail version for consoles.
