Risen 3 teaser shows shadowy combat

Developer Piranha Bytes is taking the Risen series back to its roots with Risen 3: Titan Lords, which moves away from the last game's pirate theme and returns to a more fantasy-oriented world. Publisher Deep Silver has released a new CGI teaser trailer, offering a glimpse of what to expect from the upcoming RPG.

Piranha Bytes is aiming to give players a vast world for players to explore at their own leisure. The story sees a young warrior seeking out the Mages on the island of Taranis, but the developer notes that players can choose to ally with any of the game's other guilds and take the story in a different direction.

Risen 3: Titan Lords will arrive in August on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
