    Air Temple, a piece of downloadable content for Risen 2, has been released today. The DLC promises "up to eights hours of additional playtime" - although many say that isn't exactly the case - and costs $10.

    Gargoyles have infested the world of Risen 2: Dark Waters. Explore the mysterious Air Temple to uncover the mystery that surrounds it as you embark on an extensive new quest. Explore and discover an additional island with new characters, quests and enemies with up to 8 hours of additional playtime.​

    You can grab Air Temple on Steam if you feel like it.

    Was Risen 2 good? I didn't follow the launch. Might try the "demo" when I get a chance.

    A 2 hours DLC that should have been available from day one and it's nothing but a boring bunch of fetch quests.

    Yeah, fuck you Piranha Bytes. This is Bioware-level of low.

    With each passing day, my hate for the publishers grows more and more. And I can't even curse them to fail, lose all their money, be utterly destroyed. They won't understand their mistakes, instead they will blame piracy or something. There is no fucking learning curve.

    Gothic trilogy, how I miss you. :(

    Note to myself: Never again buy any Piranha Bytes game, use "alternative sources".
    For Gods sake, have some decency and make it available at least 3-4 months after release.

    I can't put my finger on what makes this the least interesting hook ever. It just is. "GARGOYLES HAVE INFESTED THE WORLD!" So what? It's already full of Titans or whatever they've been retconned into. I don't care. Whatever the fuck. I got the impression from Risen 1 that the island was the only habitable place left in the world. Now apparently it's full of pirates. Shit pirates. Butt pirates. I don't care. Purple monkey cheese. Gothic had a classy understated quality. Fuck off.

    If not for Dead Space, I would boycott every game with zombies from now on. Zombie invasion is the new world war 2 of gaming. I'm surprised the Gothic series didn't have nazi DLC, by the way.

    How do you make a pirate game without any pirating?
