After some time we finally have a chance to take a look at the upcoming Risen 2: Dark Waters gameplay. In this video we can see mostly elements of fighting gameplay as well as brief conversation. It is also a good chance to see what the world will look like and its characters.
I think there are significant improvements over Risen 1, both in visual and gameplay department. Combat seems more interesting and engaging, however the AI looks quite dull (the idea of only one enemy attacking you at the time), and we can see same old conversation system, used in majority of RPG games, so there is no revolution here. Nonetheless Risen 2 looks promising for any RPG fans out there, with its development team having deep roots in RPG genre.
Risen 2: Dark Waters will be released on April 27th, 2012 for PC in Europe , on May 22nd, 2012 for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 in North America and on May 25th, 2012 for Xbox 360 and PS3 in Europe.
