Fans of Risen take note: The next chapter of the adventure is set to begin sometime in the near future.

Following screens and an online tease or two from over the weekend and in the morning, Deep Silver has officially announced Risen 2: Dark Waters, which is set quite a few years after the original game. In this new and deadly time, “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.”

Additionally, the hero of the first game is part of what’s being referred to as the “Inquisition” and has in turn been dispatched to find a way “to stop the chaos caused by these creatures from the deep.”

Risen 2 will have a “fresh theme and setting on a huge variety of themed island locales” along with the RPG elements of the original game. While no further details were announced (not even a release target) it was confirmed to release for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC gamers.
