Archolos is a free, non-commercial open world RPG developed on Gothic II engine (requires its ownership, but you do not need G2 installed). It takes place in Gothic universe and is set before Gothic 1, with its own world, story, full polish voice acting and orchestral soundtrack.
It has been getting a significant acclaim, such as 98% positive rating on Steam out of almost 10,000 reviews, and its director is now working at CD Projekt on upcoming Cyberpunk expansion.
I started playing recently, still only just at the beginning, but I absolutely love what I played so far. Wonderful atmosphere.
Funnily enough, just like another masterpiece of a non-commercial RPG - Enderal - Archolos also starts on a ship’s lower deck, with your character getting tossed overboard.
But soon, you find yourself on land
and in a first village, where the adventure opens up.
