Caldera lies on the peninsula of the Lost Realm. It is one of few remaining safe havens after monstrous sea creatures begin pushing humanity to the brink of extinction; food and supplies can't get through. The only people who know who to stop these monsters are a bunch of pirates of the Southern Islands.
Whilst infiltrating the ranks of the pirates in Risen 2: Dark Waters
, players will enter battles against a variety of enemies. These enemies can be tackled from a distance using firearms, or by using melee combat at close range. Several enemies have a weak spot that can be exploited using special attacks: "giant crabs can for example be kicked in order to turn them on their back, rendering them helpless".
A release date for Risen 2: Dark Waters
is yet to be confirmed.
