In a press release, ELEX has been officially confirmed as the new project by Piranha Bytes, in collaboration with Nordic games.

Two artworks have also been released, so check them out below.

To keep up to date as much as possible, follow our Facebook Page and Youtube channel!

Nordic Games teams up with Piranha Bytes to work on their first collaborative project. The open-world roleplay game ELEX is scheduled to release in Winter 2016/2017 on PC and current gen console platforms: www.ELEXgame.com
“Apart from being enthusiastic about the cooperation with Nordic Games, it is great to know, that we will have ample creative freedom with ELEX, which is a very important factor for us” said Bjφrn Pankratz, Game Director at Piranha Bytes. "We can't wait to show you a completely new game experience with a fresh setting, new assets and plenty of possibilities.”
ELEX is a handcrafted action role-playing experience from the award-winning creators of the Gothic series, set in a brand new post-apocalyptic science fantasy universe that puts players into a huge, seamless game world full of original characters, mutated creatures, deep moral choices and powerful action.

UPDATE: Yes, yes it is! In a recently updated background picture from the ELEX website, we can clearly see the elements from the Teaser picture posted by Piranha Bytes!

As we have shared on our Facebook Page, thanks to the detecive work by our forum members ravenhearth and eddievedder, the following clues come to light:

  1. The image shared by PB yesterday and the background image from website fit almost perfectly.
  2. Piranha Bytes and Nordic Games have a great working relation, the latter being the current publisher for the Gothic games.
  3. Lars Wingefors (CEO of Nordic Games) liked PB's binary picture.
  4. THQ, owned by Nordic, promoted ELEX on their page.
  5. The blurred logo on ELEX website was incredibly similar to PB's logo. After that was noticed, it was replaced by the logo of the defunct company named Vigil Games, owned again by NG, it seems as a messure to keep the secret.

The PS4 is called an "Enhanced Edition". Deep Silver write in their press statement that this version will include all updates and additioncal content (DLCs) and have a graphics quality similar to the "Ultra" setting on the PC.

Our Modding-Challenge has been over for quite some time. But only now, Kai found the time to evaluate the submissions with the diligence and consideration they deserve.

Together with the World of Risen, he selected the three winners who will each receive a license for the articy:draft Software.

The winners are:
  1. HerrFenrisWolf
  2. Milgo
  3. Klabautermann

We congratulate the winners. And to everyone who did not make it we say: Rest assured that this was a close run. We liked all your ideas. Alas, we had to choose three.

The winners will be notified via PM in the forum.

Kai's tabular analysis of each mod can be found in the thread to this contest in our forum.

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".
