Arcania: Gothic 4 is the fourth entry in the Gothic series and was developed by Spellbound Entertainment. This is the second game in the series (after Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods) to not be developed by series creators Piranha Bytes. The first teaser trailer revealed that Arcania was scheduled to be released in Winter 2009, but JoWooD Entertainment has subsequently pushed back the release to 2010. The game was released on October 12, 2010 for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360. A PlayStation 3 version was planned for 2011 but was never released.

Ten years have passed since the end of Gothic 3 and the world has changed - the Southern Islands have become embroiled in conflict, and set the stage for the player to brave countless adventures in the guise of a nameless hero. Decisions will have to be made which will change not only the future of the Southern Islands, but of the entire world. Old acquaintances and new faces will aid the hero or attempt to thwart his efforts throughout his journey.
