First Gothic 4 details emerge

Saturday, 26th April 2008 22:51 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Tiscali Games has posted the first details of Gothic 4, as you can see here.

It’s called Gothic 4: Arcania, apparently. Here’s a taste:

  • Fully titled Gothic 4: Arcania (as opposed to the previous subtitle Genesis).
  • Story set 10 years after the third title and located on various southern islands, each having different climate zones and its own flora & fauna.
  • Same as in previous titles, there’ll be a hidden place (temporarily blocked by a magical shield/barrier).
  • Weather changes, full day and night cycle plus the ability to temporarily cast a spell and change the time of day (e.g. from day to night when you need to slip past guards unnoticed).

    New developer too. I haven’t played a Gothic game since the first one, but it’s interesting that after three games Jo Wood has handed over development to someone else. Did Piranha Bytes jump or were they pushed?
