JoWooD Productions has announced Gothic 3 - Forsaken Gods, the official add-on for the award winning RPG, is to be released in Q4 2008.

The publisher says the expansion will answer many open questions and "guarantees a seamless step to Gothic 4". Players once again take on the role of the nameless Hero and must save the world of Gothic. On your journey you'll meet old friends, although be warned that some old alliances may not have stood the test of time.

The expansion has been created taking into account feedback from fans, with the developers closely reading the Gothic message boards and promising to incorporate as many fan-wishes as possible.

Gothic 3 - Forsaken Gods should be available in Q4 2008.
