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).
