Gothic 1 Remake Gameplay Features & Story

In the Gothic Remake, players will once again step into the boots of a nameless hero in an attempt to save the Kingdom of Myrtana from an orcish invasion. The game is a faithful recreation of the original Gothic, so expect mostly the same storyline and sidequests.

A Gothic 1 Remake story synopsis reads:

King Rhobar II, in need of a large quantity of magical ore in order to forge powerful weapons, operates the Khorinis mines with all available prisoners.To prevent them from escaping, the monarch asks his best magicians to create a magical barrier. But something goes wrong. The magic gets out of control and a mutiny turns the mines into a wild territory now controlled by the most violent prisoners.

The King is forced to negotiate with the new owners, while the tension between the different factions of the mines increases. What no one expects is that the arrival of an unknown prisoner will change absolutely everything.

In terms of gameplay features, Gothic Remake will have a modernized combat system! That's fantastic news for those who want to explore the Kingdom of Myrtana again, or for the first time. Below is an official list of features/details available for the Gothic Remake thus far:

  • Return to The Colony, in a full blown remake of the popular and revolutionary game Gothic from 2001. Rediscover the world of the mining colony, its secrets and challenges.
  • Play as the Nameless Hero – Manage the fate of a lifetime convicted prisoner who must survive in a world of wild animals, creatures and convicts of dangerous reputation.
  • Faithful full remake of the original Gothic 1.
  • Modernized combat system that takes the basic premises of the original combat system to the modern age.

Check out the first trailer for Gothic Remake, entitled "Welcome to the Old Camp," from the THQ Nordic showcase below to get a glimpse of what the remake looks like. All footage was captured "in-engine."
