Oh heck yeah, loved loved loved the first one, and the setting for Dark Waters sounds awesome. There aren't enough pirate themed RPG games...

I may have to install Risen and give it another play through, and btw anyone who played the Gothic series I-III, it was Piranha Bytes whom developed those, and that ridiculously horrible 4th part was from another company after PB was fired after the not so successful launch of Gothic III, but it was still an amazing game after the community patch fixed it up.

Deep Silver reveals Risen 2TM: Dark Waters


Piranha Bytes team to explore uncharted territories


21st February 2011 – Hampshire, UK/… Deep Silver and Piranha Bytes today officially revealed their new game Risen 2™: Dark Waters, the successor of the popular role-playing game Risen™. With an expanded setting, a fresh story and characters and an all-new technical foundation, Risen 2 will expand the success of the Risen franchise worldwide.

Set several years after the end of Risen, raging titans have devastated the world and pushed humanity to the brink of existence. Subsequently, monstrous creatures have risen from the watery depths of the sea and their attacks have brought all
seafaring to a grinding halt. The hero, now a member of the Inquisition, is sent out to find out how to stop the chaos caused by these creatures from the deep. His quest begins with rumors that the pirates who frequent the southern islands are the only ones who know a way to get rid of the creatures once and for all and end their reign of terror.

With an all-new pirate-based theme, Risen 2: Dark Waters aims to combine the most loved classic RPG gameplay mechanics of the original Risen with a fresh theme and setting on a huge variety of themed island locales. A third-person role-playing game set in a dark and gritty universe, Risen 2: Dark Waters maintains the most immersive features of the original Risen, with multiple
approaches to every challenge allowing players to shape the game world based on their own decisions. These choices will serve to unlock new paths, features and additional skills for the character. Together with a highly interactive environment and a full day/night-cycle affecting countless aspects of the game world, Risen 2 will be set in the most immersive RPG game world so far.

The eagerly-awaited successor of Risen will set sail worldwide for consoles and PC. For a first immersion into Risen 2: Dark Waters, three illustrations giving a first glimpse of the beautiful new game world can be found on the official game teaser site at www.risen2.com.

Risen was basically the next Gothic, though the name obviously isn't owned by them. The Gothic IV as I mentioned that came next from a new developer was bascially stripped of every amazing feature that Gothic was orginally designed with, for a rather easy and extremely linear adventure...it was a joke.

When Gothic III launched it was rather horrible and ridiculously buggy and barely ran, {no thanks in part to investors pushing it out earlier than it was ready} and the owners of the series fired Pirahna Bytes whom were their developers. So Pirahna Bytes started work on a new series, in the style of Gothic since thats what they've been making for the past decade.

Anyway it was a critically acclaimed success, played near identical to Gothic, but had even more to it. And here is part II coming hopefully this year.

Here is the trailer for it and a nice gameplay clip:
