'Gothic III' Collector's Edition Gets Exclusive Soundtrack

by Rainier on Sept. 19, 2006 @ 9:40 a.m. PDT

JoWooD continues its successful cooperation with Piranha Bytes by publishing one of the most spectacular titles of the coming year: Gothic III, the third part of the legendary RPG saga. The Collector's Edition exclusive soundtrack provides some of the most exciting masterpieces in gaming scores, written by Kai Rosenkranz, the composer for Gothic 3, 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.

The Gothic 3 Collector`s Edition will be released the same day as the regular version - on October 13th of this year.

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!

Features:

  • 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!
