Gothic and Gothic 2 Now With Steam Workshop Support

More than two decades after its release, Gothic and Gothic 2 will receive official support for Steam Workshop. THQ Nordic wants to recognize the modding community in this way and provide them with tools to create new content more easily.

First and second Gothic have been on the market for over twenty years now and have been drawing the interest of fans for all that time. The long life of Piranha Bytes' games is largely due to the modding community, which regularly provides new content - such as the recently released extensive mod Chronicles of Myrtana: Archolos.

Both the developer and its current publisher - THQ Nordic - appreciate the involvement of fans. To make their lives a little easier, they decided to provide old Gothics with official Steam Workshop support.

For now it is only a beta version, but this state of affairs should not last too long. You can check out the modifications available on Steam at the links below:

To be able to install and run them, you must first select a test version, so-called branch of the game in question. You can do this by right-clicking on a particular item in your Steam library and then going to the "Properties" tab. In the window that appears, click on "Beta". After that, all that's left is to select the trial version from the drop-down list and close the window - in this case, no password is needed.

In addition, THQ Nordic has prepared a comprehensive manual for creators of future modifications. You can find it here. Well, now we can only wait for more mods worth playing, right?
