I love the games in the Gothic series and, even though the third installment in the series was not really my favorite game, I was pleased to hear that JoWood plans to improve it by releasing an expansion – Forsaken Gods, especially because they promised it will be the bridge between Gothic 3 and the upcoming Gothic 4. Sounds like a good premise to start with, right?

If you agree, it means that you’ll be happy to hear that Gothic 3 – Forsaken Gods has reached gold status and will be shipped to retailers on November 21. This new chapter includes new quests, new monsters and many of the old friends whom gamers around the world got to know in previous episodes. The developers promise that the game will answer all the unanswered questions and, as I already said, slowly introduce the new chapter – Gothic 4.

“A fascinating story combined with thrilling and various quests are ensuring that the fans of the Gothic series will experience many exciting hours in the official AddOn. We are happy to create this great transition to the already announced ArcaniA, hereby decreasing idle time for the community”, explains Stefan Berger, Head of Project Management.

And I am happy too – I can’t wait to get my hands on the Forsaken Gods expansion and go on with a new Unnamed Hero-esque adventure!
