Story

- he is now living in a small harbour village called "Caldera"
- you are now wearing the Ocular of the inquisitor (story relation not known yet)
- the game is now spread about multiple islands
- there is still the inquisition located on one of the islands

- you will meet familiar faces like Carlos, Gregorius Steelbeard,…


Setting
- pirate setting
- its no longer on Faranga from Risen
- you can travel to different islands by ship (if you can have an own ship is not known yet)
- in the sea lives different sea monsters who attack ships
- it will also have an fast travel system on the islands
- the islands will have different climate zones with different settings and monsters
- guns,canons and othe fire weapons in the game
- there is still magic
- skill system same as Risen
- should feel more realistic than Risen (for example chests who are empty or have rubble in it, but to every chest is a story)
- the world is bigger as in Risen
- side quests should be more complex than in Risen


Graphic / Technic
- animation is now motion captured
- NPCs and monsters more detailed
- bump mapping, realisitc relatime clouds instead of a skybox
- more realisitc faces
- no loading times on the islands and invisible walls only short loading by changing the island
- NPCs talking with each other (for example you can hear a conversation between too NPCs when the treasurer leave his treasure)
- every NPC has a daily routine like in Risen
- in the night different monsters than on the day like in Risen

Monsters
- there will be Gnomes again
- minecrawler
- some familiar and some completly new monsters
- also normal animals like apes,boars,… depending on the climate zone


- Risen 2 is about 80% done they doing voice recording rght now

I loved the original and will get this for sure. It was a much better game than the latest Gothic.

First one was a real gem. Little rough round the edges, but great fun. Wonder if this one will be banned here also? Lets ban a game because they smoke a plant that some guy in a fantasy game nick named weed. Oh noes a hooker promises sex as a reward for a quest. Australian adults need to be protected from such themes, but it's k to show Underbelly which has all the above and more on free to air TV. FFS.

With all the swashbuckling in the screenshots and Dark Waters as part of the title, it has me thinking...

Nice. First one is great, still need to finish it, don't want the ride to end. Now it doesn't have to.
