Default Gothic Universe?

Anyone heard of this, as there is absolutely no description?

Trust me, most of the names I have been called you can't translate in any language…they're not even real words as much as a succession of violent images.

No, not German, that's for sure.

It looks like some nordish language, Swedish or Denmark, maybe.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)

Thanks, all.
What seems odd is the Overview part, which is the exact description of Gothic 1, yet they don't specifically say Gothic 1 and they call it Gothic Universe.
So the Overview isn't really an overview if Gothic 1, isn't included since the Overview only talks about Gothic 1, not an overview of the Universe.

Gothic 1 seems to be owned by PB solely, so maybe it's just false/misleading PR bit.

The pixmania link takes you to Swedish website, all right. I don't know the legalities of it all, but this gamebox sure looks inviting to me. I need to get Night of the Raven in English anyway, so this is a nice read for me

I think they just forgot to bold Gothic… "GothicWelcome…"
It should just be Gothic
Welcome….

Oops, I guess I didn't really look at the font on that site, even though I don't speak German, I can usually recognize German print.

All of the Gothic games should be included. As Gorath pointed out in my other thread, both Jowood and Piranha Bytes are printed on the front of the box.

well piranha bytes did make all the gothics…
but pitanha bytes owns the rights to gothic 1 if i recall, so it's not a given that they have been offered anything reasonable to include it in the package.

They have a new screenshot of the actual retail box now.

It definitely includes all 3 Gothic games!

Download JemyM´s FAQ and forget about the crappy manual or the ReadMe.

The controls are simple:

If you are right-handed use the alternative setup: ASDW + mouse. It´s like a shooter setup with a twist.

Press - and keep pressed - the "Action Key" if you want to interact with something. That´s either CTRL or the LMB. Then all trivial actions are done with "forward". This is always the first thing to try! You will find out that almost everything is done that way.

Combat is similar. Space toggles the last active weapon or spell. 1-10 the things you´ve assigned to them in the inventory.
You are weak in the beginning. If you survive close to 50% of the fights against a single scavenger you´re doing alright. Things will look different with a decent weapon, an armour and more strength. Do not spend the first 30-50 skill points on extravagant skills!

Combat controls:
Keep the Action Key pressed. Now the movement keys give you 3 active and one passive option. Later you will learn combos. They require precise timing.

The trade interface sucks. It´s not that hard to understand though:
Step 1: Put the things you want to buy into the merchand´s middle column.
Step 2: Put the stuff you want to get rid of into your middle column.
Step 3: Fill up with micro currencies like arrows or ore until your stuff is worth at least as much as the things you want to trade for.
Step 4: Now you can make the exchange.
