A new behind the scenes video for Risen 2 has been released that focuses on the various factions available for you to join. Similar to the first game whichever faction you choose will change the abilities and options available to your character as you level up and they will assist you in a variety of ways.
Of particular note is the expanded role of the Gnomes who have gone from what was essentially background objects to being one of the factions you can join. The little beasts are something similar to thieves and look pretty awesome.
Check out the video after the break, after preparing your body for all the Risen 2 Gnome Glory.
