JoWood Announces RPG Collection

In even more compilation news, JoWood sent word that its RPG Collection is due out later this month, combining Gothic 3, SpellForce 2 and Dungeon Lords in one box. It will be priced at 29.99 Euros.

Gothic 3 is the latest entry in the popular action-RPG series, having players take on the role of a human fighting against Orcs. SpellForce 2 is a RTS/RPG hybrid, having players lead armies and solve quests and overcome obstacles as in classical RPGs. Meanwhile, Dungeon Lords is a RPG and fighter combo, offering fast-paced, action-packed combat along with tactical elements.

Gothic 3 Collector's Edition to Include Soundtrack CD

Set for release next month, JoWood and Deep Silver sends word that the Collector’s Edition of Gothic 3 will include an exclusive soundtrack CD. It will include compositions written by Kai Rosenkranz and performed by the “Bochumer Philharmoniker.”

“The Collector`s Edition is a special way to say “thank you” to all our true fans out there, and it therefore should contain what the fans desire most; in all Gothic-related boards, the fans literally begged for the soundtrack to be included. In a last-minute-attempt we tried to add the soundtrack CDs to the already planned package – and we managed!” explains Johann Ertl, Community manager for JoWooD Productions.

Gothic 3 will be available starting October 13 in regular and Collector’s editions.

Gothic 3 Camp at GC

If you needed any more reasons to go to the Games Convention in Leipzig, this is it:

Special games have a need for special measures and loyal fans deserve a reward. Developer Piranha Bytes, publisher JoWooD Productions and co-publisher Deep Silver are proud to announce the official Gothic 3 camp in the very heart of the Games Convention in Leipzig.

From the 23rd to the 27th (the camp is opened on 24th) of August, the exhibition space between halls 2 and 4 of the fair in Leipzig will be transformed into a fantastic scene. Utilizing hundreds of square meters, a medieval market, live action role playing swordfights and the public barbecuing of a suckling pig will ensure a Gothic-styled atmosphere. Other attractions will be provided as well as the opportunity for fans to deploy their own tents to provide a base while spending exciting hours with the developers. Only a few days after Piranha Bytes called their followers to arms, more than 300 fans enrolled for the campsite.

Gothic 3 is scheduled for release this October.

JoWood at GC

In a short note, JoWood sent word that it will be present at the Games Convention in Leipzig, showing off Gothic 3 and The Guild 2. The showcase will be accompanied by a live on stage medieval swordfight display. In addition, the publisher will also be showing off many new games from its 2006-2007 lineups.

Gothic III Delayed

Confirming assumptions that the German edition of Gothic III will result in a delay for the English edition, Aspyr sent out word that the RPG sequel will be hitting stores in North America this Fall, after being previously expected to be released in Q1 2006. The rest of the world will receive the game in September.

Gothic 3 this September

JoWood has announced that the much-anticipated Gothic 3 will see its release this September, changed from the “when it’s done!” date.

In the first two parts of Gothic, you fought along a hard way from being a prisoner to becoming the hero of Khorinis, the strategically important mining island. Now the time has come for you and your friends to discover and fight across the mainland of Myrtana.

The situation is desperate: The orcs have beaten King Rhobar’s troops and are ruling the most important parts of Myrtana, enslaving the human population. Only the tricky inhabitants of the south and the wild barbarians of the icy north are holding against the orcish domination.

And there are rebels, lurking around in the shadows of Myrtana’s forests and trying to fight a hit & run guerilla war. It’s your choice if you want to join them or the orcs – but whatever you do, the destiny of Myrtana will depend on you!

  • A totally new graphics engine creates the most realistic and fascinating in-game world possible: Myrtana awakens!
  • Huge living and breathing environment reacting to the actions of the player and creating endless choices of interacting with the world and its population
  • New fluid action-packed combat system with spectacular fighting styles, including 2-swords-fighting
  • No linear levels – The Player defines the pace in which he advances through the game. Every action has ramifications for the world at large
  • Countless side quests to choose from
  • One of the best AI’s ever provides hundreds of characters with realistic behavior reacting to your words and actions
  • More than 50 different kinds of monsters and animals, together with countless humanoid friends & foes, contribute to a living world
  • A totally class-free character development system gives you the chance to create the char of your dreams with the abilities of your choice!
