Risen 3: Titan Lords set for August release

New RPG coming to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360

Developer Piranha Bytes has confirmed that the recently-revealed Risen 3: Titan Lords will be released in August 2014.

It has also confirmed that the game will only be arriving on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, shunning Microsoft and Sony's new consoles which will be fast approaching their first birthdays by the time Risen 3 hits retail.


According to today's announcement, "Risen 3: Titan Lords pulls players into a hand-crafted role-playing world full of rugged charm where every decision changes the course of the story and your fate, and the fate of the world, is up for the taking.

"Exploration is the key to our game," said project lead Bjoern Pankratz.

Here's the official plot:

"The world of Risen 3 is abandoned by all gods and suffers from the Titan Wars when a new threat rises from the soil. A young warrior is attacked from the shadows and deprived of his soul. He sets off to reclaim what is lost amidst the darkness that is spreading throughout the world. The banned Mages could be powerful allies on his quest. To get their help, he needs to find the Mage sanctuary on Taranis, also known as the Island of Thunder. Protected by the Guardians, the Mages search the mines of Taranis for crystals loaded with magic energy. Will the player join the Guardians to get in contact with the Mages? Or will he choose one of the other guilds in Risen 3 to reach his goals?"

The first Risen 3 screenshots and art were released as part of the game's early unveiling last week.
