Risen 3: Titan Lords – Piranha Bytes Return To Their Roots With Classic RPG
Piranha Bytes, the creators of Gothic and Risen, return to their origins with a new, classic RPG. Risen 3: Titan Lords pulls the player in to a handcrafted role-playing world full of rugged charm where every decision changes the course of the story. Risen 3: Titan Lords is set for release in August 2014 for the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system as well as Windows PC.
The key element of the cult Gothic series as well as Risen is the vivid world and the freedom to explore it. The world of Risen 3: Titan Lords will be diverse, authentic and full of life, providing the player with an authentic, classic RPG experience.
“Like a carpenter with a handcrafted 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.
The world of Risen 3 is abandoned by all gods and suffers from the Titan Wars when a new threat rises from the soil. A young warrior is attacked from the shadows and deprived of his soul. He sets off to reclaim what is lost amidst the darkness that is spreading throughout the world. The banned Mages could be powerful allies on his quest. To get their help, he needs to find the Mage sanctuary on Taranis, also known as the Island of Thunder. Protected by the Guardians, the Mages search the mines of Taranis for crystals loaded with magic energy. Will the player join the Guardians to get in contact with the Mages? Or will he choose one of the other guilds in Risen 3 to reach his goals?
Last of Us was a very good game, mind. The best they've done, but I certainly wouldn't put it on a pedestal the way its regarded. (1 minute ago)
@AndreasZ94: I just don't think they've done anything that's pushed the envelope or been particularly bold, other than focus on details. (2 minutes ago)
@MrWhite: It was a very different ND back then too which is why the company name seems weird today (4 minutes ago)
Then again, its a difference of months rather than years between those and PSX (6 minutes ago)
I don't remember very well but i think my biggest problem with Crash gameplay was the depth perception was weird (7 minutes ago)
@AndreasZ94: I wouldn't go as far as saying it was one of the earliest ones. When I think early 3d, I think 3D0, 32X and Jaguar. (7 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: That's the crux of it. Tomb Raider is a good example of that. Then again, it lent a bit to its charm at the same time with how difficult and tense it made traversing things. (9 minutes ago)
