With a new patch, Piranha Bytes and Deep Silver bring their game Risen 3: Titan Lords to version 1.20.

The only patch besides the hotfix for multicore CPUs adds a new difficulty setting named "Ultra", in which the hero is no longer immune to damage while doing an evasion roll. Potions also get a cooldown period.

Also, several bugs, including plotstoppers like the Zacharias bug have been fixed.

The full changelog can be seen on Steam and in our download description (see below).

User of the Steam version will get the patch through Steam. Those who bought the DRM-free boxed version can download the patch under the link below.

The user known as MN32410 in the forum has created a new Risen 3 modification which focusses on asthetic aspects.

It provides new textures and effects with the goal of improving the visual appearance of the game and thus, enhancing the atmosphere.

The linked thread below contains screenshots and might take a while to load, depending on your internet bandwidth. The thread itself is in German, but the screenshots speak for themselves and the mod should work with international versions of Risen 3 as well.

Update: There is a new version of his texture mod as well. Both mods work best when combined together.

Piranha Bytes returns home empty-handed from this year's German Game Developer Awards. Their title "Risen 3: Titan Lords" was nominated in the categories:
  • Best technical performance
  • Best story
  • Best roleplaying game
  • Best graphics
  • Best sound
  • Best game design
but was ultimately outdone by the competition.

The award for the best roleplaying game went to "Demonicon", whereas the plattformer "The Last Tinker: City of Colors" can from now on brag with the title of best story.

"Lords of the Fallen" from the Deck13 in Frankfurt who also created "Venetica" back in 2009 received three awards: Best game, best action game and best game design.

The financially troubled developer Crytek (also from Frankfurt) impressed the jury with their technical skills. The awards for best graphics, best sound and best technical performance went to "Ryse: Son of Rome".

GOG.com started a sale during which many titles are available at greatly reduced prices. This includes Risen and Risen 2. For example, the current price for Risen 2 Gold is EUR 11,89 which is a 50% discount.

Since GOG.com plans to make flash sales and daily bundles during this sale as well, there is the chance to get the games even cheaper, if one is willing and able to wait for the right moment.

The sale will last until November 25th.


• Risen @ GOG.com
• Risen 2 @ GOG.com

The download portal GOG.com offers a special discount on the Risen series (which in this case means only the first two titles with DLCs) for the next 12 hours.

You can get Risen 1 and 2 including the DLCs for under 23 dollars. All without DRM, of course.

The package can be customized, so you can remove titles you already own or don't want and still get a discount (even if it's not that high anymore).
