Gothic Remake: A trailer wishes happy holidays in a somewhat creepy way

Gothic Remake

Gothic Remake continues its development and meanwhile the Alkimia Interactive team and the publisher THQ Nordic have decided to wish everyone happy holidays with a bizarre and disturbing celebratory trailer dedicated to the game and the looming Christmas.

The result is rather grotesque, but it is probably the result sought by the team in question: in the video we see a group of goblins dressed up with a lot of Santa hats that should look festive and joyful but are quite terrible. The whole thing is still quite fun and above all it reminds us that Gothic Remake is still alive and well and continuing its development, probably after a short Christmas break.

We don't have a release date on the game yet, though: considering even the objective difficulties that emerged in the development area in this period, it is likely that there is still a little to wait before we can see it, but it is possible that the release is still expected in the course of 2022.

Gothic Remake is a total reworking of the first and historic Gothic, built for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X | S with various improvements in terms of technique and content. Last March we saw new images and official Steam page.

Gothic Remake Gets a Festive Video Wishing Fans Happy Holidays

‘Tis the season to be jolly, and to celebrate developer Alkimia Interactive and publisher THQ Nordic have dropped a festive video wishing all their fans out there who’re patiently waiting for the upcoming Gothic remake happy holidays.

Go ahead and feast your eyes on said clip down below:

As you can see in the footage above, the cheery new video features a bunch of spooky-looking goblins partying it up while sporting christmasy hats. Pretty cute, right?

While the Gothic remake is still currently in the works for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, we unfortunately still don’t have a concrete release date for when it’ll arrive. Presumably, though, there’s a good chance that the much-anticipated fantasy RPG will launch at some point in 2022.

For those on PC who want to check out the game, there’s a playable teaser demo that you can play right now. Just click through here if you want to give it a whirl.

And for more information about the Gothic remake, here’s a rundown courtesy of the title’s official Steam page:

The Kingdom of Myrtana has been invaded by an implacable horde of orcs.

King Rhobar II, in need of a large quantity of magical ore in order to forge powerful weapons, operates the Khorinis mines with all available prisoners. To prevent them from escaping, the monarch asks his best magicians to create a magical barrier. But something goes wrong. The magic gets out of control and a mutiny turns the mines into a wild territory now controlled by the most violent prisoners.

The King is forced to negotiate with the new owners, while the tension between the different factions of the mines increases. What no one expects is that the arrival of an unknown prisoner will change absolutely everything.
