Gothic 4 "Arcania": First video, new screenshots, release date - Update
Listen up Gothic fans: Today we have more than just screenshots and a teaser of Gothic 4 "Arcania - A Gothic Tale”. In winter 2009 the game is said to be ready.
For the first time we are allowed to show the GC 2008 video of Gothic 4 "Arcania - A Gothic Tale”. At the end of the clip publisher Jowood and developer Spellbound reveal, when they plan to release the game: "Winter 2009” it says. So we will have to wait more than a year.
To shorten the time we offer some screenshots of the GC 2008 Special of our German sister magazine PC Games. It seems that they were quite impressed by the visualization of trees, grass and hills - the screenshots in our gallery really emphasize that, too. The textures were sharp and delivered a good depth of field.
About the lighting we heard only good things, too: The iris adjustment to bright light is said to be simulated very well and shadows are emphasized in accordance to the time of day.
Update April 6, 2009
Two new screenshots of Gothic 4: Acrania have been released by the publisher. Arcania is said to take place ten years after the events of Gothic 3. The game will be released for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
