Risen 2: Dark Waters finally gets free demo

Sometimes, game developers and publishers like to release demos for games well before the full title is released. However, sometimes gamers are forced to wait weeks or months until a demo of a game comes out. That's the case for Risen 2: Dark Waters, the fantasy RPG from developer Piranha Bytes and publisher Deep Silver.

The game was released for the PC on April 26, but it was only this week that a free demo of the game was made available via Steam. The demo offers a way for players to experience the start of the full game, which has a bit of a pirate theme to it.

According to the description of the demo on the game's official web site:

The world is in turmoil, the Titans have devastated everything in their path with unstoppable force. Only the city of Caldera, where the headquarters of the Inquisition are located, offers a place of refuge for the people. It is repeatedly attacked by sea monsters, and supply ships are sunk en route. Nobody knows how long the walls will hold; food and weapons are gradually running out. The nameless hero sets out on a mission to put an end to the sea monsters once and for all.

Risen 2: Dark Waters is currently only available on the PC; console versions of the game won't be made available until later this summer.
