Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods is seen by all Gothic series fans as the worst installment bar none. Outsourced to a studio clearly out of touch with the source material, it failed miserably. The diligent modding community however has been working on it the past six months about to bring it up to par, and publisher JoWood has smartly seen fit to team up with them to release the official Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods Enhanced Edition, pictured here.
Produced by new developer Mad Vulture Games (formed through the community), the patch is to be seen as official, and will also be free to those who already own the expansion. To be clear: this is developed by the same team that released the excellent Gothic 3 community patches.
Enough of that; let's see what you get:
- bug fixes
- reworked combat system from Gothic 3 1.74
- balancing changes
- improved graphics
- revised in-game models
- quest and dialogue adjustments
- world design improvements
- stability and performance improvements
Mad Vulture is shooting to release before the year is out -- we'll keep you posted. Knowing JoWood, we'll also see some kind of compilation pack too, eventually, housing Gothic 3 and its expansion, each with the community patches bundled.
