The Making of Risen 2 – Factions Video Is Here

Factions detailed in the second episode of The Making of Risen™ 2: Dark Waters

Check out the video after the jump.


Factions are important in Risen 2 in that, similar to Risen 1, the faction you ally yourself with will make new abilities and possible paths for your character’s development available for you. With this feature you can play the game allied with one faction and have a really different experience in a second playthrough allied with the other faction.

The video shows you discussions from the developers at Piranha Bytes and gameplay footage with illustrations of:
– the Inquisition and what the disappearance of magic from the world has meant for them
– the Natives in their natural habitat, the jungle, and their suppression as slaves in this world
– the Pirates who play a central role in the story of Risen 2
– and finally, the Gnomes and their enhanced role in Risen 2, their culture of collecting all things which aren’t nailed down and a special mention of the gnome Jaffar who will help the player through his quest.
