"You have saved your home island from the forces of evil in Gothic I and Gothic II. Now it is time to travel to the realms of the mainland.
Invading Orcs have enslaved the human kingdom. There are but a few free humans in the icy north and the southern desert and a handful of rebels hiding in the forests and mountains of Midland."
Gothic 3 doesn't have a linear storyline, but rather produces different and unique stories each time that will eventually lead you to deciding the fate of humankind, whether you have chosen the rebellion or the Orcs.
Gothic 3's main features include easy combat system, powerful and unique storyline, free-roaming world, advanced human behavior AI, a huge variety of side-quests, over 50 different monsters and animals, dozens of human enemies, more than 50 different powerful spells and over a hundred different weapons.
