In what’s gradually becoming a series tradition, Gothic 3 stand-alone expansion Forsaken Gods has been re-released in a format which reportedly works.
Big Download reports the Trine Games-developed expansion has been given a serious polishing by Mad Vulture Entertainment.
As well as an overhaul to graphics and audio, the Enhanced Edition sports “completely revised” gameplay and combat. And, of course, a massive dose of bug fixes.
Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods Enhanced Edition is available now on Steam, and if you’ve been burned by this franchise before, never fear – the whole series is on sale at the moment, and a gamble on this one will only set you back $2.50.
The original Forsaken Gods was released in 2008 to near-universal derision, proving almost unplayable before patching and merely thoroughly broken thereafter. Its parent game, Gothic 3, received a similar though less extreme reception.
