Risen Makes Its Way To All Three Major Consoles

THQ Nordic has officially given Risen a console port as you can play it right now for Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch.

THQ Nordic has officially released the console version of Risen, bringing the game to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch. Originally released clear back in 2009,  this is the game you know and love with a bit of a clean up and some fine tuning so you can experience it in a better way. The company has partnered exclusively with GameStop for the PS4 and Nintendo Switch versions in North America, but Xbox is pretty much available everywhere else. You can see the game in action down at the bottom as it is out now.
