Risen 2 to use Steamworks

Publisher decided to use the Steam Platform from Valve on a worldwide basis

Posted by Alex 'SpectralShock' V on Jul 26, 2011 - 5:22pm EST (Jul 26, 2011 17:22)

A Deep Silver representative has confirmed that the company will use Valve's Steamworks platform as DRM on a worldwide basis, for the upcoming title Risen 2 on PC.

The digital copy of Risen 2 will also not require two different copy protections on Steam (compared to Risen 1). Risen 2 will be playable without a DVD in the drive if the product has been added to a Steam account and will be available for download on other PCs.

Users will only be required to be online once – to link your game to your Steam account and afterwards you will be able to play offline and without DVD in the drive. You will also be able to install Risen 2 from your Steam account on as many systems you like.

There are more details and explanations in the
announcement thread. Risen 2: Dark Waters is an upcoming RPG set to release in 2012.
