Risen 2 confirmed for PlayStation 3

But when will it launch?

Fantasy role-playing game Risen 2 will launch for the PlayStation 3 as well as the PC and Xbox 360, Eurogamer can reveal.

The first game released for the PC and Xbox 360 only.

Unfortunately we still don't know whether the Piranha Bytes-developed game will launch this year or next. "We don't have a release window yet but I can confirm it's Xbox 360 and PS3," a spokesperson for publisher Deep Silver told Eurogamer.

In a press release issued this afternoon, Deep Silver said: "The eagerly-awaited successor of Risen will set sail worldwide for consoles and PC."

Following this morning's confirmation of Risen 2's subtitle, we now have more story and setting details.

Risen 2 is set several years after the end of Risen. Titans have devastated the world and pushed humanity to the brink of existence. Creatures have emerged from the sea and stopped poor boats from doing their business.

You, the hero, must set out to stop the chaos. Your first stop as a member of the Inquisition is with pirates who frequent the southern islands. They'll know what to do.

Player choices "serve to unlock new paths, features and additional skills for the character", we're told. "Together with a highly interactive environment and a full day/night-cycle affecting countless aspects of the game world, Risen 2 will be set in the most immersive RPG game world so far."
