Risen 3 teaser trailer is all teeth and swords

New, 7 comments

A new teaser trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords offers a brief glimpse at one of the enemies sea-faring players will have to face once they step into the game's war-torn world.

Risen 3: Titan Lords is the third game in developer Piranha Bytes' pirate-focused role-playing game franchise. Like in previous installments — players will be able to explore the world at their leisure and engage in combat with various foes. The story will focus on a young warrior whose soul is stolen; he then sets out on a revenge quest to reclaim it. The world, "abandoned by all gods" according to the Risen 3 website, is filled with different guilds that the player must align himself with in order to achieve his goals.

"Like a carpenter with a hand-crafted 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," reads a statement on the website from Project Lead Bjoern Pankratz. "You can try out and find things that others might not. Exploration is the key to our game."

Risen 3 was announced in February and is slated to launch this August for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC. Pre-orders for the game are available through publisher Deep Silver's website.
