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 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 force? Or will you try to help others in need?

In The Chronicles of Myrtana you decide your own fate.

So does this mean that SlimeGooGoo SlimeGooGoo likes this? It isn't clearly stated since "Steam Store description:" are the only words used by SlimeGooGoo SlimeGooGoo although he added a nice title graphic which seems that he cares. I'm obviously confused and rightly so since i'm pretty much used to a party gooping pessimism of unmatched quality of SlimeGooGoo SlimeGooGoo . I always loved Gothic 2 and SlimeGooGoo SlimeGooGoo , despite the fact that i haven't played Gothic 2 for at least a decade, but i'm still unsure if should point out my interest in the mod or if i should just make fun of SlimeGooGoo SlimeGooGoo .

Holy crap on a cracker. Downloading this the moment I get home. Let's goooooo

Edit: there was also a pretty recent steam update in Gothic 2 that improves compatibility with modern PCs. It's almost like this was meant to be.

Edit2: Is the character's name a reference to the game's cheat codes? If so, it's awesome!

This needs more attention on gaf!

This project won moddb's mod of the year award. It sits at 98 percent positive steam reviews.

It's without a doubt the best mod I've ever played - and frankly speaking even one of the best RPGs I've ever played.

If you fancy RPGs and can tolerate outdated graphics and a few clunky mechanics (eg controls), please do yourself a favor and try this game. It's second to none in terms of world building, level design, immersiveness, and even quest design. As a little cherry on top, it features the best medieval city I've ever seen in a game.

For those playing, make sure to install the voiceover (it's a separate steam install - polish only, but massively adds to the atmosphere). Would also recommend installing the dx11 injector - a separate community project which improves graphics a little
