At the remake “Goths» previews continue to appear. Last time we talked about the expanded daily routine of the characters and battles. This time, two more publications shared their impressions, and the developers gave additional comments.
They value the importance of community modifications, but modding is Unreal Engine is a difficult task. Therefore, it is unlikely that tools for editing the world will appear at the release, but they are “on the radar,” as is the release in 2024 – the date is promised to be announced in the next couple of months.
The authors point out that they deliberately made the demo combat-oriented. They wanted to see the fans’ reaction and realized that they needed to move in the direction of being true to the original.
The developers also commented on their title Alkimia Interactive, referring to the desire to create sophisticated artificial intelligence. This will apply not only to people, but also to creatures – in the remake, monsters can move far from their homes and start battles with other inhabitants of the world.
As for the previews themselves, the journalist Dualshockers drew attention to the expanded cooking system. Stylistically, the journalist described the remake as “no frills,” with an emphasis on cool tones. As for the combat mechanics, it will be similar to Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, but will be easy to learn and with a sense of “speed.” The puzzles will be adapted to modern standards, and accents will be used in the voice acting to reflect the culture of the different camps.
In the Polish edition Online games noted that the remake will expand on worthy storylines, such as Niras’ story. The reviewer was impressed by the elaboration of the characters, on whose faces scars, grimaces and wrinkles are visible. After the battle, the blood from the character can be washed off by going into the water. The journalist also drew attention to the circular menu – it seemed to him that the controls were designed for a controller.
The developers promised that the world will be 20% larger. New quests, heroes, opponents and even locations will appear in the expanded territories. There will also be a weather system and time of day changes.
Gothic Remake will be released in 2024 on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series. And the classic version will reach Nintendo Switch on September 28th.
