VIDEO: Glasgow groupâ??s Risen 2 short hits the web

Animation specialists Axis has finished its latest trailer following its famous Dead Island piece.

The Glasgow-based group partnered once again with Deep Silver for the new Risen 2 trailer.

“We were already well into production on Dead Island when Deep Silver approached us about working on the Risen 2 trailer,” said Axis executive producer Richard Scott.

“Our relationship with all the team at Deep Silver was going so well that we grabbed the chance to get on board another project with them”, he added.

Axis’ Wiek Luijken, who directed the trailer, explains:

“The original game was known for having a different attitude to other action RPG games. Deep silver wanted to hold on to the more brutal, gritty reality of the original and weave in the new themes of pirates and magic which is in keeping with the setting in the narrative.”
