Risen 3: Titan Lords - News Roundup

by Couchpotato, 2014-08-13 02:09:42

To begin the large news-bit I have new press release from Deep Silver about the release in the NA market. Don't worry as we will be the beta testers this time.

Risen 3: Titan Lords Now Available in North America

August 12, 2014 - Cologne, Germany - Deep Silver announced the release of  Risen 3: Titan Lords for the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system as well as Windows PC today in North America and on August 15th in Europe and the rest of the world. With  Risen 3: Titan Lords, Piranha Bytes, the creators of Gothic and Risen, return to their origins with a new, classic RPG that pulls the player in to a hand-crafted role-playing world full of rugged charm where every decision changes the course of the story.

In their "Factions" gameplay video, Piranha Bytes introduce the three factions of  Risen 3: Titan Lord s and takes you on an unforgettable, visually stunning journey. In  Risen 3: Titan Lords, every faction comes with its own unique skills and tasks and offers a very unique style of play. 

See the launch trailer:

Then I found a few more reviews for the game, and not all of them like the game.

Innergeek - 1.5/5

It’s a shame the game is so riddled with issues, because it has some cool ideas up those frilly sleeves. The game’s pretty relaxed about how you go about quests, even telling the quest giver to f**k off if you get bored.  Unfortunately, for all its ambition, once I got wings I just wanted to fly away.

Analog Addiction - 9/10

Fans of the Risen franchise will absolutely love Risen 3: Titan Lords, while newcomers will definitely enjoy it, and maybe even get interested in the other two entries.

The Sixth Axis - 3/10

Though Risen 3 has its moments, there is simply too much to overlook, even if you’re patient enough to make it five or six hours into the game. Role-playing die hards may be able to wring a few morsels of enjoyment from Titan Lords though others, including casual fans of the genres, will find it almost unplayable.

Attackof The Fanboy -  No Score but Meh

Risen 3: Titan Lords is an old-school RPG that will appeal to only the hardcore Risen/Gothic community. For the rest, this last-gen offering is one that will likely fly under the radar. And given that well-executed freedom of exploration and passable combat barely balance out the handful of negative aspects, this is one experience that can wait for a price drop.

And for last I have another recorded live stream.
