Hey, ready for more news about launch day DLC? On the bright side, Deep Silver is making day one Risen 2 DLC pretty easy to get. No need to pay extra for a Collector's Edition or lock yourself in with an online pass -- just pre-order.
Pre-ordering Risen 2: Dark Waters from any retailer (including online stores) will bump you up to the Special Edition at no extra cost. This bundles in the Treasure Isle DLC map pack with "at least five extra hours of quest lines," not to mention an extra location to explore.
GameStop in North America is also throwing in the Pirate's Clothes equipment set for pre-ordering with them, in addition to the Special Edition offer. The extra gear does have stat boosts that gives you an advantage early in the game.
Risen 2 will be released on April 27 for PC, then May 22 for PS3 and Xbox 360. You can read more about Piranha Bytes' piratey RPG here.
