Gothic 1 Remake - Goblins!

by Hiddenx, 16:11

Henriquejr spotted the Goblins of the Gothic 1 Remake:

Here is a closer look at Goblins in Gothic 1 Remake!

These devious little creatures can annoy even hardened adventurers. For inexperienced warriors, they can even spell their doom! They can quickly surround you and attack all at once, armed with clubs, old rusty swords, or anything they can get their hands on!

Goblins are crafty and, above all, light-fingered. Remember our old friend Talas from the Sect Camp, who lost the Almanac to a gang of Goblin muggers? It's time to team up with him once again and retrieve it!

  • Combat will get more options
  • Magic combat only will be possible (no need to change to close combat)
  • Later chapters get a higher quest density
  • Maybe you can stay loyal to the Old Camp or Swamp Camp and ascend as Heavy Guard or Guru
  • Old music melodies will stay and get enhanced, new ones will be added
  • All in all - stay true to the original and add things that were originally planned but later omitted due to time/resource problems

Gothic Remake - Showcase Trailer

by Silver, 01:07

A new showcase trailer for Gothic Remake.

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!

Gothic 1 Remake is coming to PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.

All footage captured in-engine.

Gothic Remake - General Update

by Redglyph, 10:16

Alkimia Interactive posted an update on Gothic 1 (remake).

General Update - Minecrawler Sneak Peak & Call for Community Manager Application

Minecrawler Sneak Peak & Call for Community Manager Application

Back in March, we released a render of the actual in-game Scavenger created for the Gothic Remake to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Gothic. Since it’s been a while, we thought we would post another update.
We really enjoyed the critical discussions and constructive feedback that came out of this post and so we will continue releasing key elements of the game that way.

Today we're bringing you a sneak peak of our interpretation of the Minecrawler.

We can assure you that they’re even more terrifying moving around in-game. We also came up with a small additional twist to these creatures, but there’ll be more on that in a later update.

Generally, we are very pleased to share that the development of the Gothic Remake is progressing on all fronts. We have assembled a team of over 35 specialized developers at our Barcelona office and are working with several contractors and outsources in addition. Gothic may be more than 20 years old, but the scope of this game cannot be underestimated.

We are also still looking for additional people to join our team. If you’re interested, you can check our open positions here:

Today, we want to put a special spotlight on the open position of Community Manager at Alkimia Interactive! We are looking for a versatile person to join us at our Barcelona office and help with coordinating our communication efforts and community presence, among other things. The most important part is to be passionate about Gothic and proficient in English and German (ideally Polish or Russian as well). You can find more details here:

Gothic Remake - Features In-Game Store

by Hiddenx, 15:31

Finally you can get pets and heroe-weapons for Gothic!

Enhance Your Adventure – Gothic Remake to Feature In-game Store

Barcelona, Spain / Vienna, Austria, April 1st, 2021: Gothic has just turned 20 years old, and players around the world can’t wait to put their feet back into the Colony. As THQ Nordic and developer Alkimia Interactive promised, the development process for the upcoming Gothic Remake will be as transparent as possible. And therefore, the two companies are proud to present one of the exciting new features of the Gothic Remake: The G-Store.

After analyzing all the great RPGs out there, it became quite clear that players want to have a chance to enhance and customize their adventures. With the G-Store, Alkimia Interactive and THQ Nordic will offer vast options to do so. The store will feature new equipment for the hero – you can get the legendary weapons of Diego or all-new clothes to really stand out between all the other colonists. Also, the shop will offer a large amount of quality of life items, such as healing potions, XP-boosters or creature-type focused damage-enhancers, if you are struggling to slay a troll for example. Also, if the player has spent all their learning points or attribute points in a way that doesn’t please them anymore, a full respec is also available for a small fee.

And – for the very first time in the Gothic franchise – the G-Store will exclusively feature the most requested item-types ever: pets! If you ever felt a bit lonely while running through the wilderness, we have a solution: Get a pet! Be it a baby scavenger or a young troll, everyone will find a beloved companion.

Each transaction in the G-Store is done with G-Coins. These can either be purchased at a fixed rate as seen in the price list below or via viewing live streams of the game – for each hour watching the Gothic Remake in a stream, registered users will be rewarded with G-Coins. The exact offering of the in-game store depends on the community feedback and will be revealed closer to the game’s release.

G-Coins pricing overview:
• 2.500 G-Coins for EUR/USD 12.99
• 5.000 G-Coins for EUR/USD 24.99 (+500 Bonus G-Coins)
• 10.000 G-Coins for EUR/USD 59.99 (+1000 Bonus G-Coins)
• 20.000 G-Coins for EUR/USD 99.99 (best value and +2000 Bonus G-Coins)

"With the Gothic Remake, we do not simply want to make the old Gothic look shiny, we want to fully adopt the game and bring it up to 2021 standards (and probably beyond). We are all big fans of open-world RPGs in general and in almost all of them is a shop for the modern player: Hardworking in real life, earning a lot of money but having no time to spend it. For this kind of people, we offer THE perfect solution!
" says Reinhard Pollice, Studio Head at Alkimia Interactive & Business and Development Director at THQ Nordic, "we did a representative survey in our finance department and 100% of the people agreed, that this is a fantastic idea!"

The Gothic Remake is currently in development for PC, PlayStation®5, and Xbox Series X|S. There is no official estimated release window yet.

Thanks Henriquejr!
