As the name states Gothic: Remake, is a newer version of the classic THQ title Gothic that was released in 2001. Now, over two decades later THQ Nordic has decided to revamp and reimagine a classic game. Without an official release date, the game has promised to provide a faithful replica as well as an expanded experience of the 2001 title. Confirmed to be available on PC, other platforms have not received confirmation at the moment. Even if little is known about the game, expectations are very high given the success of the original.
Fairy Tales Are For Adults
Two decades since THQ Nordic released one of its most successful cult titles, Gothic makes a reappearance in the gaming community. Retelling, the story of the Kingdom of Myrtana a place where war is commonplace and violence happens daily.
The people of Myrtana have fought and repelled every single threat to ever reach their kingdom, and now there are only the orcs left to fight. However, years of non-stop war have rendered Myrtana to the edge, now running out of resources, weapons, and manpower the Kingdom looks newer.
In an attempt to explore large quantities of the remaining magical ore available, King Rhobar II recruited a powerful wizard to create a protective magical barrier. This powerful spell runs astray and the mines become a vile place, filled with the most gruesome prisoners. The journey of the plates comes in the form of an unexpected prisoner, the “Nameless Hero”, whose presence shifts the fate of the entire Kingdom.
Not All Heroes Are Born, Some Are Forged
With twenty years of technology, and a new engine behind it, Gothic: Remake is an entirely new game. A third-person camera and colorful world provide an immersive experience. Combat and controls will feel vaguely familiar to returning players. In addition to it, the playable teaser showcases that the game is beginner-friendly and enjoyable.
Tracing back to its origins Gothic: Remake relies heavily on world-building and character development. From the two-hour teaser called “The Colony” players are introduced to a variety of characters, monsters, and creatures with distinct intentions. Morality comes to play, and shines through the actions of the supporting cast, leaving you, the player, in control of facing the adventure as you wish.
THQ Nordic bets on a better version of their cult classic. Even if the information is scarce Gothic: Remake makes use of the best gaming has to offer. An entirely new engine, and expanded combat, as well as storyline place the game in a great position to rekindle the love between this cult classic and fans of the original.
While newcomers that have enjoyed Shadow of War, Shadow of Mordor, Lost Ark, Elder Scrolls Online will surely find an amazing experience with Gothic: Remake.
