Risen 2: Dark Waters will be released for PC on April 27 and May 25 for Xbox 360 and PS3, Deep Silver has announced.

In addition to retail releases, Risen 2: Dark Waters will be available via digital distribution for PC.

Set several years after the end of Risen, raging titans have devastated the world and pushed humanity to the brink of existence. Monstrous creatures have risen from the watery depths of the sea and their attacks have brought all seafaring to a halt.

The hero, now a member of the Inquisition, is sent to find out how to stop the chaos caused by these creatures from the deep. There are rumours that the pirates who frequent the southern islands are the only ones who know a way to get rid of the creatures.
