A story, that happened 10 years before the unnamed hero
was thrown into the mining colony.


Myrtana, the Vaduz Island, not long before the creation of magic barrier and not long after the beginning of war with orcs. Thanks to the fate, leading a rather monotonous life, Lars becomes a participant in the event that changes everything. In mysterious circumstances, twelve of the most powerful mages of the kingdom led by famous Grandmaster of Fire, Xardas, arrive on the island. No one knows, what they are doing there. The only thing that is known is that soon they plan to continue their journey.


Lars, after helping the mages, will receive a proposition to travel with them to the Khorinis Island. Wizards are going to create there a magic barrier to isolate prisoners from the outside world,… at least that’'s what they say. Our hero will receive different tasks (not only from the mages), which may be a real challenge for a player.

Character and the world

Lars is a young man, who with his father (a former soldier of royal army), has a small blacksmith shop near the city of Vaduz. His father, apart from teaching him the profession, helps him in combat skills. His dream is that his son will find some peaceful job and that he won’t take part in any battles.

He himself, as a veteran of wars with orcs, doesn’t deal well with the trauma. After smallpox and death of his wife he drinks a lot getting himself in more trouble. However, as it appears – the worst is yet to come...

Mages arrive on the island and after you fulfill a task given by them, they offer you collaboration and going with them on the Khorinis Island. What will we find there? The old harbor known from Gothic 2 will be unrecognizable. Dozens moored ships, sailors, traders, knights, prisoners and travelers will fill the whole harbor neighborhood. Apart from that, the whole city will be refreshed and extended. The Khorinis Island itself will also look different: all burned down houses and destroyed constructions will look as new, there will be more roads, a few times more people, more households, inns and other interesting objects.

The Valley of Mines also will look differently. The Old Camp, once in ruin, now will look as brand new, mountain fortress and collapsed mines will be full of life. There will be a few mines and not only in the Valley of Mines, but also on Khorinis. Of course, acces to the Valley of Mines will be restricted, not anyone will be able to enter. Safe conduct pass will be needed.

The rest will be told by screenshots.

Using the day off from work we want to show you some of more than dozens of new clothes and armors 
that will appear in modification!

NOTE - The video has only unofficial nature of the presentation, so please do not pay attention to the
model of the ruined colony from Gothic 2 in the background.
In addition, the armor inspired by The Witcher will only be an easter egg (not avalible for main hero), 
so don't worry about destroying climate of the game.

Few questions guys...
- Are you planning english voice acting for this mod?
- Will it be DX11 supported?
- Will there be possible to apply L'Hiver texture pack?
- Can you create main caracter model with higher level of details and polys?

I also replied on our forums.

We are not sure about english voice acting at this point. I believe we will decide after we finish recording polish voice acting. It is highly probable however if we will be able to find people willing to volunteer.

I myself will make dx11 viable option for our mod. The official release will be without dx11 support(by that i mean it will not have dedicated settings and normal maps, other than that it will be able to run dx11)

We are against l'hiver texture pack since while it might look good, it doesn't reflect the old gothic atmosphere. It changes too much in our opinion, most of the textures are from games like skyrim, the witcher, etc. where the rendering technology is much different than in zengine(occlusion, tesselation, normal maps, post processes).

I am not sure whether we can change body to a higher definition one. It might be possible, but as far as I know no one has proposed this yet. Thanks to you we might just do that.

Since Piranha Bytes released NOTR this is by far the most promising project I have seen. G3, FG and Arcania are only pale echoes of true Gothic experience in a worst possible manner! Gothic 1 and 2 have had something that no other game did, not up to date... ever! I think that even PB are not aware of that.
I firmly believe that this serie does not deserve to end in such horrible way. You guys are doing wonderful job but also have great responsability of resurrecting a giant. Do this right and you are heading straight into the legend!

Good updates, seems Vaduz is an interesting place! I really liked the diamonds in those caves too. As for the hero does he have to look the same to the nameless hero or you just testing?

Glad to hear that ;) As you probably noticed a character has brown hair color, so this is not a nameless. Unfortunately, by the fact that it is the same model of the head of 'ponytail' many people can confuse them. Therefore probably we give up with that head model, and give another without pony.
