Developer Piranha Bytes and Publisher Deep Silver is bringing the Risen series back to its roots with a new teaser for Risen 3: Titan Lords, which is a gothic fantasy RPG that every decision will change how the story plays out. The teaser comes with a description saying: “What you see will be dark and comes straight out of a very black place.” Risen 3: Titan Lords will be coming to PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in August. The game will be able to played for the first time in public on May 10th at the Role Play Convention 2014 held in Cologne by Piranha Bytes itself.
Piranha Bytes is wanting to give players a medieval open world where players can explore the universe at their own leisure. You begin the story where the world has been wrecked by the Titan Wars and you are playing as a young warrior with a stolen soul seeking out the Mages on the island of Taranis. You will be fighting your way through hordes of monsters and humans, while also crafting gear. Customize your character’s armour, weapons, and attributes as you progress through the game. Risen 3 has upgraded their game visuals, and makes it more pleasant to the eyes.
The Mages on the island that you seek are banned and could be powerful allies along your quest. You must find the Mage sanctuary in Taranis, and protected by the Guardians, the Mages are searching the minds in order to get magic energy found from crystals. Now it is your decision as a player to either join the Guardians to get in touch with the Mages, or choose to go with other guilds to reach your goals.
“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”, says Bjoern Pankratz, Project Lead at Piranha Bytes.
