Indeed, that is very true. I might add a few things. The creators of Gothic have literally tried to recreate their franchise with the first "Risen". This game has turned out to be exactly the same as their previous games - a feast for those who wanted exactly that, but dead boring to everyone else.
I'm glad that they are now trying to head for "stranger tides", so to speak. Still, the ridiculous and counter-character "nameless hero" still prevails. Let's see if other characters get more of a face in this; unfortunately, this was exactly the weak point in "Gothic 3".
But since the "Armada of the Dead
" RPG was canceled by Disney (and THAT had looked like my hopes and dreams), I guess I'll give Risen 2 a fair and honest chance.
By the way, in the aftermath of "Gothic 3", the rights of "Gothic" went to their publisher JoWood (who raped this licence for good
). But it seems like those rights are expiring and will go back to Piranha Bytes. They will promptly make another Gothic, I can predict that with certainty.
