Un nuovo, interessante gioco di ruolo plasmato dalle fresche menti di Piranha Bytes, team di sviluppo responsabile della realizzazione di Gothic.

Il titolo è attualmente in fase di beta test presso tre development studio distinti: la release è programmata per il prossimo 2 Ottobre, su Xbox 360 e Personal Computer. Il comunicato stampa è, come al solito, dopo il jump.
