This isn’t that if you’re hoping for a remake. It does not even seem to be a remaster, however simply an improved port. There is a reworked interface and full game pad controls, but that has to do with it in regard to brand-new additions. And as you can see by means of a trailer that accompanied all this news, it more or less looks the like the 2009 initial.
The island Faring requires a brand-new hero, you, reads an official blurb about the video game. Dive into a gritty, atmospheric and raw dream world in which every action has a consequence. In the impressive world of Risen, filled with mysterious earthquakes, fearsome beasts and inconceivable treasures, create your course with the sword, discover the art of personnel combating or end up being a powerful mage.
Originally released on October 2, 2009, via Xbox 360 and PC, Risen got significantly different Metacritic scores depending on the platform. On PC, it boasts a 77, stressed with some fairly high evaluations. On Xbox 360 it just boasts a 60 though. Despite this, it’s widely considered as a cult classic. And certainly, it was popular adequate to get two sequels, Risen 2: Dark Waters in 2012 and Risen 3: Titan Lords in 2014.
Risen is set to come to Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One on January 24, 2023. Upon release, the video game will be available at retail, but just by means of GameStop, and just for PS4 and Change. Why the Xbox version isn’t getting a physical release, we don’t know, but it’s probably since THQ Nordic does not believe it’s worth the financial investment.
