Risen 2: Dark Waters Now Available on NVIDIA SHIELD


It’s time for a high seas adventure in the pirate-themed action/RPG Risen 2: Dark Waters, which is available to play now on SHIELD (parrot not included).

The port of Caldera is between a rock and a hard place—it’s assailed by two warring Titan Lords on land and another nasty Titan at sea, whose pet Kraken prevents all sea travel from entering, or leaving. The infamous pirate Steelbeard holds the key to keeping the Kraken, and its master, at bay—and it’s up to you to infiltrate his band, steal his secrets, and liberate Caldera.

Don’t let all the rum fool you, Risen 2 is not your standard pirate fare—it tosses hearty doses of magic and fantasy elements in with all the swashbuckling to deliver a unique experience.
