Piranha Bytes and Nordic Games have announced an "edgy, dark, uncompromising [and] complex" open-world role-playing game called ELEX for PC and "current gen consoles". It's due out winter 2016/2017.
Gothic 3 scored only 8/10 because developer JoWooD "forced" the game's release when it was "not ready", developer Piranha Bytes has revealed to Eurogamer.
JoWooD has told Eurogamer that a patch to fix buggy Gothic 3 expansion Forsaken Gods will arrive "within this year", although it has been nearly two weeks since the original and quite severe problems were reported.
JoWooD plans to release a Gothic 3 expansion in Q4 this year.
Dubbed Forsaken Gods, it promises to answer all sorts of outstanding questions and act as a "seamless step" to Gothic 4.
The publisher also insisted that it will be watching the forums closely to try and incorporate your ideas, so put on your robe and wizard hat and get thinking.
Deep Silver will be publishing a new game from Gothic developer Piranha Bytes.
JoWooD has revealed that it's currently working on Gothic 4 for PC and next-generation consoles.
Here's a nice treat for the weekend: a demo of Gothic 3.

- Take care of group of bandits
JoWooD and Deep Silver have announced that Gothic 3 will be released on October 13th in Europe.
JoWooD has announced, with no small amount of modesty, that it has "the answer to all your prayers", assuming you're a Gothic fan: Gothic 3 is due out in September 2006.
