New Character Revealed For Risen 2

By Mark Delaney, 6 years ago
We've already met a few of the swashbuckling stars and starlets for the action-RPG Now we're being introduced to a new character who is equal parts courageous and proud, but also very powerful in her own way.

Her name is Chani. She is a native to the village of Earthclan and she has not taken well to her land's uninvited guests, the pirates. She is the daughter of the Shaganumbi tribe's leader and she is devoted to her people just like her father. She protects them using her array of magic and voodoo.


When she first meets the protagonist, our Nameless Hero, she doesn't know whether to trust him to save her people's way of life, or to destroy it, like the others seem intent on doing. That relationship will play out over the course of the game as she proves to you that she can handle herself in the face of danger. Their friend or foe storyline will be an important aspect of the game's narrative, especially as Chani contemplates putting a spell on The Nameless Hero.

Risen 2: Dark Waters hits the high seas of retail on April 24th in North America and April 27th in Europe.
