Risen is a single-player fantasy-themed action-oriented computer role-playing game under development by the German company Piranha Bytes, and published by Deep Silver.
The beginning of the game will have the protagonist shipwrecked after a storm on the Forbidden Island, home to an active volcano. Ancient temple ruins have recently risen from the ground, and bizarre creatures infest the island. Added to the situation, the Inquisition forbids anyone to exit the city of the island.
Your PC will need a graphics card thats as powerful as a GeForce 8800 GT/Radeon HD 2900 Pro and it should be paired with either a Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 3800+/Celeron E1200 Dual-Core 1.6GHz CPU to match the Risen recommended system specs. This PC setup will deliver 60 Frames Per Second on High graphics settings on 1080p monitor resolution. You should also have 1 GB system memory for min specs. Make sure your GPU can run DirectX 9 or Risen won’t run. To summarise, Risen needs around a 12 year old PC to play at recommended settings.
