Gothic 3 is a fantasy-themed role-playing game for Windows from the German game developer Piranha Bytes. It is the sequel to Gothic II. Although widely available in English, the native release of the game is German. The game was released throughout the European Union on October 13 2006 and became available throughout North America starting November 20 2006. Although the US version is rated T (for teens), the version released in North America carries exactly the same gameplay content as those released internationally. The North American release incorporates two patches that appeared after the initial UK edition.

A Collector's Edition was also released containing bonus collectible material. JoWooD released a standalone expansion, entitled Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods, on November 21 2008.

In Gothic 3 it are two ways to open the console the first is to modify the ge3.ini file. The second is to type Marvin in the game. The second cheat discovered is a bug very usefull. It work with some items ( plants, some potions, and other you can use) First use the item. When the efect of the item starts close the inventory. This is a good way to obtain life without cheating.


Jumping from the clif

You can greatly shorten your way if you go strait from clif, but not around it. While jumping (walking from the clif), press your hero to the wall (if walk forward is W, than you have to press S) and when he lands, no life will be taken.

Runing in water

While swiming, look at the map. When you turn off the map, your hero will not swim, but run and it doesn't even matter how deep the water is.
