Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods

My fellow Gothic fans rejoice as a  new Gothic is coming this year.  Not much is said about it but this sure is one of the games I’m going to play.

“JoWooD plans to release a Gothic 3 expansion in Q4 this year.

Dubbed Forsaken Gods, it promises to answer all sorts of outstanding questions and act as a “seamless step” to Gothic 4.

The publisher also insisted that it will be watching the forums closely to try and incorporate your ideas, so put on your robe and wizard hat and get thinking.

Otherwise there was little information on what will be in the expansion, but expect more quests and swords and ears and wands and magic sweets.

We really rather liked Gothic 3 when it came out in October 2006, landing it with a well-deserved 8/10.” – eurogamer.net.

Neverwinter Nights 2 expansion

Atari has announced Storm of Zehir, a second expansion for D&D beast Neverwinter Nights 2.

The 15-hour campaign, due for release in Q4 this year, promises a massive inventory of improvements and focuses on a quest-line directly after the original’s conclusion.

Probably the key change is the ability to explore a “vast” overland map, which basically translates to being able to move around the faithful old Sword Coast and new “xenophobic jungle nation” Samarach in a non-linear fashion, using skills such as ‘Spot’ and ‘Survival’ to pre-empt ambushes and discover hidden treasures and locales.

Storm of Zehir will also revert to a party model similar those seen in Icewind Dale and Baldur’s Gate, allowing full-party customisation rather than sticking you with the pre-rolled troupe of adventurers that populated NWN2.
