    Sooo.... Why isn't anybody talking about this? I, for one, am super excited. Seems like it will be an excellent RPG.

    Devs promised multiple story paths, side- and main quests influencing one another, quests made available based on various character stats, multiple solutions. They have shown a few immersive sim-like solutions to quests: race where one of your opponents gets a faster running animation and wins but the quest will react to it if you drink speed potion or have learned acrobatics and finish first. They have enrolled the help of an entire orchestra to record two hours of new soundtrack and the bits that I've heard were terrific and very much in character for Gothic. They promise the mod will be fully voiced by professionals. The setting is rigorously faithful to lore of the first two games and depicts the heydays of Kingdom of Myrtana during the war with the orcs. The story will revolve around political intrigue and (apparently) personally driven missing person investigation and will span tens of hours. Not to mention it all looks very pretty for a 20 year old engine.

    What's not to love?

    Why would a mod team bother to get PEGI certification?

    weird

    very cool.. I'm guessing they'll be no English voice acting but will there at least be English subtitles in-game? I noticed they're going to the effort of putting English subtitles on their trailers so that gives me hope lol.

    Yep, English and Polish versions will be releasing simultaneously. Been keeping a close eye on this for a couple years. Can't wait to finally play it. It looks amazing. Same with History of Khorinis.

    My understanding is that nowadays PEGI ratings for digital only products are like automated and negligible cost. With the effort put into it, I wouldn't be surprised if someone on the team wanted it as a vanity to make it look even better on a resume.

    Is there going to be the pirate island in this one? Also, is his name canonically Marvin, or did devs just add that

    Educated guess.

    It's going to suck, just like every other big mod ever. Cringe, bad direction, lack of balance, boring quests and experimental mechanics which won't work well at all.

    Admire the effort, shame the new island looks too much like Khorinis

    New dev log video. Like a previous one, there's an English subtitle.

    Hello folks,

    Many of you probably know already but if you do not, you really need to keep an eye out for this mod, it is basically an unofficial expansion pack for our beloved Gothic 2 which is, in my opinion, the best RPG of all time. It has a completely new landmass, new, professionally voiced characters, new armors, the whole shebang. It might be the Gothic 3 we all wanted. Remember to watch with subtitles, the video is in Polish. The game will not have English VA but it will have professionally translated text.

    Hope the modification will be good enough to push these fellas to work on standalone games. Maybe Poland will have another great studio.

    I don't understand a word, but I'm still impressed. This could be its own indygame.

    It's incredible how some games can still look good a decade later thanks to art direction and a certain charm. I won't be able to play this with polish VA (way too distracting), but maybe I'll give it a try with voice volume off.
