Risen 2 Delayed On Consoles, Now Coming In July

Risen 2: Dark Waters, Deep Silver’s upcoming pirate-themed action RPG, is set to make its debut on PC on April 27, but console gamers are going to have to wait a while longer for their chance to get the game–a lot longer.

The developer announced yesterday that while the PC version of Risen 2 is still on track to release next week, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game won’t be available until July 31 in North America, and August 3 in Europe.

To make it up to disappointed console gamers, Deep Silver confirmed that both console versions will get some extra content at no additional charge. Here’s what you’ll be getting:

“[Both consoles] contain the episode ‘The Air Temple’ which features several hours of additional gameplay. In this sub-plot the hero embarks on a quest to discover the lost temple, source of air magic. When he hears rumors that his old acquaintance Eldric has been seen in Antigua the hero knows that he needs to pick up his trail in order to find Storm Island, where the Air Temple is located.”

No reason for the Risen 2 console delay was given, but at least we know that Risen 2 is still coming to consoles, even if it’s a bit late.
