Gothic 4 Is Looking Rather Gorgeous Lately

Seeing as I forgot anyone was working on a fourth entry in the Gothic series, I'm pleasantly surprised to see these screenshots for Arcania: Gothic 4 looking as fine as they do.

To get myself up to speed, with original Gothic developer Piranha Bytes moving on to Risen, European developer Spellbound Entertainment stepped in to create Arcania: Gothic 4. Set ten years after the first three games, a new nameless hero sets forth to settle an old score with King Robar the Third, who just happens to be the nameless hero from the previous titles.

"Implementing a new main character is not just a consistent continuation of the given storyline, but it also allows us to add new ideas and concepts to the game," says Clemens Schneidhofer, PR Coordinator with JoWooD Entertainment. "Seeing your old hero as an apparently mad King, is a stimulating twist to the storyline of the Gothic saga as we see it. Players will need to be careful whom they trust … Gothic has always been known for its unpredictable story line."

And it's peeing, but that's neither here nor there. Arcania: Gothic 4 is due out later this year for the Xbox 360 and PC from DreamCatcher (North America) and JoWood (Europe).

    actually no its not looking rather gorgeous. It has horrible aliasing. But that's not the biggest problem! even on totally max settings all the trees and plants shimmer! the entire screen is full of aliasing artifacts that its flickering nonstop! it gives me a total headache and there is no way i'll be able to play this game
