Images of Risen

Deep Silver announced the Xbox 360 version of Risen a while ago, an RPG from the developers of the Gothic series (Piranha Bytes). The last release date given was end of 2009, let's hope that sticks since it looks pretty interesting. The images themselves seem all to be from the PC version.

There are some Gothic fanatics who will eat this shit in a heartbeat.

nice looking game.
Would be even better if they can nail a sense of progress throughout the story, somehow.

Looking great.

hmm.. I'm considering buying a 360 for this game as Gothic 1+2 still are among my absolute favorite RPG/Adventure games, but first I'd need a PC demo (which I'll barely be able to play with low settings), reviews and a comparison of PC and 360 version (especially controls/bugs) to really make up my mind.

On consoles, it is.

For what matters...

pic 22..biggest eyebrows I have ever seen! this game looks pretty good actually.
Commented on 2009-03-14 14:21:33
The game looks good but I have a feeling that seeing it in motion will be a bit different.
Commented on 2009-03-14 14:32:01
I never played the Gothic games but, graphically, this looks really good. What can I expect from this game, both in terms of gameplay and customisation etc.?

Definitely nice looking game. A shame I just can't get into Western RPGs. Fable what? :P
Commented on 2009-03-14 15:23:58
awesome. Could this finally knock oblivion from my heart? we'll have to see.

Fable is not exactly the best example for an RPG. I wouldn't call it RPG at all, it's a hack&slash game with pretty graphics.

Damn son just don't bother. If you're that tight on money you need to go to excruciating lengths to justify the purchase for a perfectly good, critically and commercially successful console then you're probably better off just forgetting this game!

Looks sort of like a more mature , serious version of Fable. Which I like. As fun and whimsical as Fable is, I would like a more serious but not to dark and forbodding game, and this looks to fit that perfectly. Fable 2, this, and the Witcher would make a great package deal lol.

If you read the description you would see that the screens are from the PC version most likely, which brings one to assume that there is in fact a PC version, which then leads one to assume its NOT xbox only. But I'm thinking PS3 isn't in the list.

I'm interested, I liked Gothic 2 until it stopped working on my PC for some reason. Will probably get this on 360 if it turns out good.
Commented on 2009-03-14 18:26:52
by the look of those shots you could of called this Fable 3 and nobody would of questioned it

Oh..didn't read all the text above.
Thx for answer.
Will wait for PC version..
And..em..1 Gothic is the best west RPG I've ever played..But 2,3d..something wrong with them. Didn't like.

At least on a visual level it looks great.

Wonder if the game itself will match it.

@ DDRMidian )

I'm sorry, if I hurt your feelings with my reservations

@ others)

If you guys expect a Fable or Oblivion like game I guess you will be disappointed, although I'm not sure what they will change for this game in comparison to their other works.

Really love the visual style. WRPGs don't seem to mix well with me. I like their style over JRPGs but the gameplay never sits well.
