Gothic dev names next game

Project RPB becomes Risen.

Gothic developer Piranha Bytes has finally decided on a name for Project "RPB"; it will now be known as Risen.

The game, we found out recently, tells the story of a man arriving at the foot of a mysterious volcanic island riddled with ancient ruins and bizarre creatures. Maybe there are rats.

Piranha Bytes is enthusiastic about creating a new setting, and claims the world will appear "dirty and used", and be based on real life rather than Tolkein fantasy.

We know there will be lots of swordplay and sorcery, but otherwise Piranha Bytes and publisher Deep Silver are holding their cards close to their chests until the Leipzig Games Convention later this month.

The game has good pedigree, and we hope to hear more soon.
