Fight like a pirate with Risen 2's dirty tricks


Posted by: Vito Gesualdi

In this episode, the developers from Piranha Bytes discuss the different fighting options in the game and explain:
  • How fighting is just one of the options allowing players to progress in the game, and how avoiding the fight can solve quests too
  • Different fighting styles available - allowing players to utilize blades, firearms and voodoo
  • How much swashbuckling swordfights from classic pirate movies influenced the fighting styles in the game
  • How dirty tricks, such as parrot distractions or sand throwing, complement the 'pirate way of fighting' and create unique variations in fighting styles

Game info: Several years after the end of Risen, humanity is pushed to the brink of existence and one of the only safe havens is Caldera, a city located on the peninsula of the Lost Realm. However, even this sanctuary is threatened by the world at chaos, as monstrous sea monsters cause shipments of vital supplies to come to a grinding halt. The hero, upon discovering a rumor that the pirates of the Southern islands know of a way to banish the creatures of the deep, journeys to infiltrate their ranks and attempt to acquire this knowledge in time to save Caldera from imminent peril.
