THQ Nordic has greenlit a full remake of the classic RPG Gothic


Quote:
Yes, we do it! The Gothic Remake is going to happen

Just a little over two months after releasing a playable teaser for the Gothic Remake and asking the players for their feedback, the answer is clear: The fans are up for a new "old" Gothic game and the vast majority (read: 94,8%) was in favour to develop a remake of the iconic German RPG Gothic, originally released in 2001.

Over 180.000 players have played the playable teaser so far. On the evening (CET) of February 16 2020, THQ Nordic took the survey offline, and hereby publicly releases the raw data of the survey, as well as highlight graphs. With more than 43.000 answered surveys and over 9.000 (yes, really!) reviews on Steam and various discussions on all social media platforms, there is enough data to check.

Eager to check for yourself? As we want to start a transparent and open production with the community from the very start of the project, we are happy to offer you the results of our survey in a neat PDF file or - for the people who really want to dig into the raw data - the entire dataset with all 43.111 participants included.

Download the PDF.

Next Steps for the Gothic Remake

THQ Nordic will establish a new studio based in Barcelona, Spain, and will then assess what players liked and what they want to be different than in the playable teaser. One of the most common mentions was for example the demand for a grittier and less colourful world.

"We are up for the challenge to develop a full Gothic Remake which will stay as faithfully as possible to the original experience and transport the atmospheric world of Gothic into a high quality look and carefully modernizing certain gameplay mechanics." says Reinhard Pollice Business and Product Development Director at THQ Nordic.

The full Gothic Remake will go into production and will be developed for PC and next gen consoles. There is no release window available yet, but it will not be coming in 2020.

Seems like they'd already made the decision and were looking for justification.

That demo was kind of crap, but I guess someone liked what they saw.

Can they remake Two Worlds II? Wasn’t that the one where you could sail a ship and everything? I’ve got it on the PS3 and I played a little of it, but I never got to where you could own a ship.

One of the most fun things I remember from Ultima Online was the ability to own ships and go sailing around the map looking for islands.

I actually thought that the teaser was decent. It looked frigging amazing but controlled poorly, something i chalked up to being a tech demo.

I thought it had promise.

I think that was Gothic 3 not Two Worlds which was a terrible awful game, granted Gothic 3 wasn't much to write home about either.
