Deep Silver and Piranha Bytes have finally released a playable demo of Risen 2: Dark Waters that allows us to experience an unspecified amount of time with the RPG sequel before spending any hard-earned cash on it. I'll update this post as soon as a few download mirrors are available, but in the meantime you can always keep an eye on the Steam product page:
Risen 2 Demo - available now for PC!
Wednesday 21st June 2012 – Hampshire, UK/.. Rig your ship and fly your pirate flag - Deep Silver today announced the release of the PC demo for the pirate RPG "Risen 2: Dark Waters"!
The demo allows players to experience the beginning of the game - the world is in turmoil, the Titans have devastated everything in their path with unstoppable force. Only the city of Caldera, where the headquarters of the Inquisition are located, offers a place of refuge for the people. It is repeatedly attacked by sea monsters, and supply ships are sunk en route. Nobody knows how long the walls will hold; food and weapons are gradually running out. The nameless hero sets out on a mission to put an end to the sea monsters once and for all.
During his adventurous journey he not only faces new and immense challenges, he also meets old acquaintances who help him on his quest.
