Gothic 4

Game description:

Ten years have passed since the end of Gothic 3 and the world has changed – the Southern Islands have become embroiled in a grueling conflict, and set the stage for the player to brave countless adventures in the guise of a nameless hero. In a vibrant and elaborate environment, decisions will have to be made which will change not only the future of the Southern Islands, but of the entire world…

Old acquaintances and new faces will aid the hero or attempt to thwart his efforts throughout his epic journey. Especially the members of the fairer sex will play a more important role. Who knows maybe the women will make the hero’s life a little more complicated…

Exciting quests and challenging fights will be as much highlights as intrigue and betrayal. Will the nameless hero overcome these obstacles and complete his seemingly insurmountable task?

  • Lush and vibrant flora and fauna
  • Dynamic transitions between day and night with spectacular lighting effects
  • Real-time shadowing for the entire game world

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.
