WORLD
Venture to the Archolos, a huge island east to the Myrtana mainland and explore never seen before region filled with vineyards, farms and villages mentioned in the first Gothic game.

Visit the great city of Archolos and lost yourself in cobbled streets of the biggest city ever presented in the whole Gothic trilogy.

On the Archolos island you will have the opportunity to delve into the deepest of mines, visit the tranquil Monastery of Adanos, sip a beer while listening to gossip in one of the city taverns, and discover other interesting locations whose secrets will be revealed only to the boldest of adventurers…

STORY
Kingdom of Myrtana, a country whose foundations crumble under the winds of war and unrest raging throughout its lands. Experience the events that forged the original Gothic storyline and see with your own eyes how the creation of the Valley of Mines impacted people far away from the main continent.

Make your mark in a brutal world where your every decision has a clear impact on its environment and the lives of those you meet on your path.

Play as Marvin, a young man who was driven away from his home by the war looming over the horizon. The reality of the Archolos, a place he runs to, unfortunately proves to be far from his expectations. Rich merchants craving only for more gold, servants of the king Rhobar II who put into practice every new and more restrictive laws and waves of desperate refugees who just like the protagonist search for a decent life. Marvin will have to find a way to survive in this land of treachery, opportunism and opposing interests.

You are not the chosen hero, you are not a villain. You are a survivor.

Will you take everything you want by the force? Or will you try to help others in need?

In The Chronicles of Myrtana you decide your own fate.
Thanks Porcozaur!

On one of their updates on ModDB someone asked the same, and they confirmed. Not clear though if they mean just subtitles or also voice-overs.

Thanks for the update. I hope it's not like the Nehrim mod for Oblivion.

Thanks. I'm pretty sure that just applies to subtitles. I'd be shocked if this had full voice-overs in both Russian and English.

Well if you check Steam the only official audio is Polish. I'll pass.

Back in the day I played Gothic 2: Night of the raven in german with subtitles in english that a fan created as there was no localised version of NotR. It was great, I prefer to read rather than listen as often characters just speak too slowly. It's very rare with voice acting I actually want to listen to it.

If they allow you turn off the Polish voices then maybe. I just can't get into any game if it doesn't have English audio anymore. That's just me though many don't care.

I remember playing Nehrim and Divinity II in German.

I remember that. I had to import a copy and do the same thing. In fact, I don't think they ever did release NotR as a separate expansion in NA. Iirc, it wasn't available in English until Gothic 2 Gold was released.

One of my favorite games. I tried it a while ago and it felt so outdated that I could not get through it.

Give us a real Gothic 4!

I agree but careful what you wish for. On the bright side PB is owned by THQ Nordic, and they also opened a Spanish developer for Gothic. So its a possibility after the remakes.

I know what you mean, I had to think about it a lot before I said it out-loud. Hopefully it will happen and be faithful to the originals
