Before we can trust you, you’ll first need to pass the TEST OF FAITH. Can you handle that? Prepare yourself for a visit in the Old Mine, a dangerous place full of vicious creatures. Descend to the bottom and find Ian – he’s your man. Tell him that Diego sent you. If you come back alive with the supplies list, we can talk about you joining us. That’s all you need to know… for now. Oh, and before you leave, ask Graham for a map. What are you waiting for? Get going!
For those who could use a bit of elaboration, this is a full-scale remake of the original 2001 Gothic. Magic gone amok has turned the mines into a dangerous place “controlled by the most violent prisoners,” and you are the nameless hero and convicted prisoner who must survive these hardships. Combat has been modernized for Gothic 1 Remake as well, but the new trailer is mostly dedicated to freaking you out with scary images.
Gothic 1 Remake has no release window yet, but it is coming to PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X | S.
