Rising one more time for the modern console.
Just over one year following the initial release of Risen 3: Titan Lords, Deep Silver has today launched the game for PlayStation 4. The new release is the first game on the platform from developer Piranha Bytes.
Risen 3 breaks from the first two games in the series by introducing a new protagonist, one of the last pirate captains who must take on the titular Titan Lords to recover their soul from the underworld.
The new PS4 edition offers an improved graphical experience as compared to prior console releases (which the developer claims is on par with "Ultra" settings in the PC version). In addition to the main game, the new release also bundles in the game's three downloadable content expansions.
Reviews of Risen 3 were mixed. The Escapist awarded it two out of five stars, praising its sea combat and difficulty while critical of the game's mission structure and lack of clear direction.
