Editor’s Note: By the immediate looks, it seems that Risen 3 is shying away from the pirate-life that was prominent in Risen 2, and returning to what the focus of the original Risen was all about.
Piranha Bytes, the creators of acclaimed RPG titles Gothic and Risen, return to their origins with a new, classic RPG set to launch this year, Risen 3: Titan Lords. In the third installment of the Risen franchise, Risen 3: Titan Lords pulls players into a hand-crafted role-playing world full of rugged charm where every decision changes the course of the story and your fate, and the fate of the world, is up for the taking. Risen 3: Titan Lords is set for release in August 2014 for PC and consoles. …continue reading » Risen 3: Titan Lords abandons ship for a classic fantasy RPG in August 2014

Saving lives is the main principle of the Emergency game series. Quadriga Games and Deep Silver are today announcing Emergency 2014, a new mission pack for the Emergency rescue simulation series introducing all-new content that centers on deadly meteor strikes.
The asteroid “Caligula” is on a collision course with Earth. Even before the actual impact, meteorites traveling alongside it strike the blue planet. One of these even knocks down the Leaning Tower of Pisa. In three missions, the player’s goal is to regain control of the disaster areas by deploying relief forces. The new fire-fighting helicopter is particularly useful to that end.
For the first time, the pack features a bonus mission for a fire department from days gone by: Caligula comes close to Earth in 1890 and destroys a farmstead in the Rhine Province of the German Empire. The player must deploy a horse-drawn fire engine and historical firefighters in order to prevent the blaze from spreading to the nearest town.
For owners of the previous titles, Emergency 2014 will also be made available as a reasonably-priced upgrade package that can be downloaded from digital distribution platforms (main game Emergency 2012, 2012 Deluxe, or Emergency 2013 required).
Sixteen Tons Entertainment and Deep Silver are also working on even more hot missions for fans of strategic rescue games: Emergency 5 from the popular Emergency series is currently in development and will be released in 2014.
“Modding will again be a central feature of Emergency 5, because I know how much our fans love to design their own units and missions. We have already had the Emergency theme re-recorded completely by the Brandenburg State Orchestra for this installment. The piece was well-received at our 20th anniversary celebration in August, where we presented it to our friends from press and community circles,” says Ralph Stock, inventor of the series and Managing Director of the developing studio Sixteen Tons Entertainment.
