Forsaken Gods is a standalone expansion for Gothic 3. It was developed by Trine Games and published by JoWooD Entertainment. The game was released in Europe and North America on November 21, 2008. An Enhanced Edition was released on March 22, 2011 developed by Mad Vulture Games.

Gameplay[edit]

Gameplay in Forsaken Gods is like in Gothic 3, with some small differences. The fight system has changed, now being based on Endurance. The gameplay area in Forsaken Gods has been restrained from the 3 parts in Gothic 3, to just one part - Myrtana. The main plot is concentrated only in this area.

Plot[edit]

After awakening from a coma which, presumably, was induced by the first game, the nameless hero must find a way to unite the continent, as it has been divided by numerous factions, many of which are aided or lead by the Nameless Hero's former companions. Through his own means, the Hero must reunite Myrtana as to finally restore the land to peace and prosperity.

Reception[edit]

Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods mainly obtained negative reviews, largely the result of excessive bugs in release which to date have not been entirely resolved by patching.
