This week's big title is Risen 2 on console, the pirate-themed RPG, which is being flanked by Arma II: Combined Operations and Hybrid.
Risen 2 was a moderately received RPG set in a pirate-era universe where monsters and titans roamed the seas, and arrived for PC earlier this year. It will be available on Thursday 9th August for PS3 and 360 for AUD$69.95.
Arma II: Combined Operations is a dual pack containing Arma II and its expansion Operation Arrowhead, and is seeing a boxed release due to the wild success of Arma II mod DayZ. It will also be out on Thursday on PC for AUD$39.95.
Finally, the creators of Scribblenauts, 5th Cell, have come out with a new franchise, an XBLA sci-fi third-person shooter game called Hybrid, which has a strong multiplayer focus and is out on Wednesday 8th August.
