Default Gothic Remake - Steam Page Up

November 30th, 2021, 21:00
There's (finally) some Gothic Remake news on Steam. We get a Minecrawler Sneak Peak [sic] and a call for a Community Manager, i.e. they're hiring a poor sob who is going to have to deal with rabid Gothic fans who will rip apart every little change of the remake version. Thick skin (like mammoth thick) is required .

We also learn that the team at THQ Barcelona has expanded to 35 people. They are in the process of hiring more folks so there are more vacancies than just the CM position.

I don't envy whoever gets that job.

The minecrawler looks good at least, although I can't tell if that's a pure screenshot. They should probably change the release date from "Coming soon" to "When it's done", because I have a feeling there's a long way to go on this one.

I would even hope so that they are going to take their sweet time or that their publisher (THQ Nordic) allows them to take as much time as it needs.
This is a beloved series and one of those games where a poor remake is likely going to spell the end for the developer.
They should be given the time, the budget and the chance to turn this into the best possible remake to do this venerable franchise justice.

In the meantime, I'm still hoping against all hope that the Gothic Reloaded project will finally be released. It all sounded pretty good after the demo they released in 2017 but progress has been slow, slow, slow…

On the bright side: The devs are still active on the forums from time to time. They have reinstated that the only thing left to do is the sleeper temple and on November 4 (THIS YEAR ) one of them confirmed that they are "close to the finishing line".

I've been delaying a full replay of the Gothic series (plus G3 addon + Arkania!) forever. Knowing my luck, I'd start a playthrough, and just when I finish Gothic 1, the Reloaded version would be released . That's why I keep on being patient which, frankly, is easier than ever with so many other games to play…

Thanks for the update and yeah it sounds like the remake is far from being completed. I also pity the new community manager as the small Gothic fan-base is very fanatic.

Speaking as one who criticized the series before and got smacked down.

That's great news if it's true. I had just about given up any hope that Gothic Reloaded would ever be finished. It just seems like one of those projects that's been going on forever with very little recent progress. I think Gothic still looks pretty good with the texture packs that are already available. I just wish someone could get the DX11 mod completely stable.

As for a replay of the series, I'm right there with you. I do partial replays of Gothic 1 & 2 every so often, but it's been more than a decade since I've fully gone through any of them, and I've never actually finished G3 or Arcania.

I strongly advise skipping the addon for G3 though. There's just no point in playing it. It's terrible, and it's not canon anyways.
