    This looks really promising, I can't get enough of Gothic-style open-worlds. Hopefully Elex 2 will be a great game and more projects like this can come into existance.

    A Gothic-like game, just like that?

    I was interested when the first gameplay video I saw was obviously played with mouse + keyboard. These previews are just as clearly played with a controller. Speaks volumes.

    I'm very much a kb&m guy myself, but honestly those games lend themselves very well for using a controller.
    It just works well with the typical Gothic-like controls.

    The only issue could be if they decide to make the interface for controllers and then apply the same interface for kb&m.
    That's what usually irks me - it makes the UI complete shit for kb&m usage.

    Farathan is very close to Phaphaphan which sounds kind of like fufufun or havafun even. Maybe this is a gift from havafun to earth?

    This isn't a knockoff this might actually be plagiarism. Even the textures look like they were stolen from Gothic 2.

    Holy crap this is the most unoriginal game I have seen in a while, someone really needs to tell these people that you can't just use these ancient animations in UE4 because it looks terrible. Also, damage number and colourful VFX for simple things like drinking a potion are not Gothic.

    Grab the Codex by the pussy
    Kinda funny how a "Polish product" is pretty much the opposite of a "polished product". :)

    Looks great? No.

    Looks better than THQ Barcelona """"remake""""? Obviously.

    You're all laughing now, but when this game gets released, you'll buy it on day 1 and play it and love it, despite all the jank!

    I would play any "jank" game over a AAA pseudo RPG all about managing cooldowns and farming gear.
