VIDEO GAME NEWS: DEEP SILVER Risen 2 and Summer Stars 2012
Hail Mighty Readers,
We have two game updates from our friends at Deep Silver who've let us know about their new sports game, Summer Stars (compatible with Kinect™ for Xbox 360), PlayStation®3 with PlayStation®Move support, and Wii™) which will be out in the second quarter of the year (just in time for the Olympics.)
There will be more than 18 different disciplines & challenges, which will cover the whole range of summer sports where players can prove their talent in disciplines like Triple Jump, Mountain Biking, Diving or Sprinting and become a top athlete in the career mode.
Multiplayer will allow you to take on three other people on split screen to see who's the best.
In our second piece of news, Deep Silver has released some details on one of the new characters in the forthcoming Risen 2: Dark Waters. So without further ado, we bring to you Patty Steelbeard...
Armed with a sabre, a pistol and a very sharp tongue, Patty has boldly stood by the nameless hero since Faranga. She is the astute daughter of probably the most famous and most notorious pirate of all time: Gregorius Emanuel Steelbeard. She has spent most of her life searching for her missing father.
To help in her search, she follows in the footsteps of her father and earns her living as a pirate bride. She has certainly managed to hold her ground in the male-dominated pirate world and has earned the respect of her male counterparts. To help survive she has developed a rough and sassy manner.
But Patty also has a loving and charming side to her which only her friends get to see.
Her relationship to the “nameless hero” in particular is very special…
"Perhaps you can pick me a special new outfit, for any other jobs you can want to rent me out for?"
Risen 2 will be released in April and will be available for the following formats:
Xbox 360® video game
