Piranha Bytes’ pirate RPG, Risen 2: Dark Waters, is nearly ready to dock on PC digital distribution portals next week on Friday, April 27, but what about the console versions? They’re still coming, my swashbuckling mateys, just a little later than previously planned.

PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Risen 2 lift anchor and set sail for retail shelves on July 31st in the U.S. and Canada and on August 3rd throughout Europe, published by Deep Silver.

To make up for lagging behind the PC, the developers are adding a bonus episode said to add “several hours of additional gameplay” to the console versions. This extra chapter, titled “The Air Temple,” takes the hero on a sub-quest to Storm Island, where he’ll seek out a lost temple for the source of air magic sealed within. The image up top is a screenshot from this extra quest.
