WoG Review of Arcania

Originally, this should have been a review judging the game from a Gothic players point of view, in which Arcania would be compared to its predecessors in all aspects. But such a direct comparison would have ended up rather short, because there is not much left to compare. Therefore this will be a normal review, which focuses on the game itself and does not constantly brief on the content and gaming experience of its predecessors. Instead it aims to judge from a general role-play-games point of view. Because not all that is labeled Gothic, actually contains Gothic.

GC 2008: Gothic 4 Preview @ WoG.com

We had the possiblity to get a sneak peak at the new changes and improvements of the Gothic 4 engine at the Games Convention. First of: Gothic 4 is renamed. The new title will be "Arcania: A Gothic Tale" instead of "Gothic 4: Arcania". One of the reasons is that nearly all of the Gothic games didn't sell really good in the US. It would lead to curiosity about the 4 in the name of the game. And the few who know the predecessor because of the bad marks it got in the american press. No good premises to launch a successor and maybe this will be a chance to continue the Gothic Series with the name Arcania, if Jowood sells the rights on Gothic.

We don't deny that Arcania is still in the middle of development, so everything we got to see is Pre Alpha.
