Risen Rises In October

Illustration for article titled Risen Rises In October

Piranha Bytes' latest RPG for the Xbox 360 and PC is gearing up for an October release, with three separate quality assurance teams assuring Risen's quality as we speak.

Announced less than a year ago, Risen sees the player washed up on a mysterious volcanic Mediterranean island, after which they will be caught up in an epic tale involving inventory management and combat of some kind. If you want more details they have a website. The point here is the game is now scheduled for release on October 2nd, and I find the fact that they've come so far so fast is either extremely heartening or extremely worrisome.

"We're excited to be able to announce the release date for Risen this far in advance," said Cathy Tische, VP Sales and Marketing for Deep Silver. "We've been in beta for a few weeks now and are focusing on stamping out the remaining bugs and optimizing gameplay."

Well, they certainly do seem confident. Here's hoping for a great RPG epic to help pass the time during the slow holiday season. *gulp*

I don't have big expectations, because Piranha Bytes(the developers) said that XBox 360 is the leading platform and I think we PC gamers know what that mean. For the guys that don't know what that mean- the game is dumbed down becaus of the limitations of the XBox and mainly because of the noob that use XBox 360.(I don't want to offend the normal XBox 360 users but they are mainly 12-15 yo which don't know what a real RPG is)
