All being well, tomorrow will witness the release of a demo of Gothic 3, Piranha Bytes' giant RPG.
We've been informed that the demo is "immense" by the powers that be, featuring plenty of beast killing in the wilderness, interaction with NPCs and, most importantly, challenges with two of the game's main factions - the orcs and the rebels. Expect to be able to acquire phat loot during the taster too.
Our old muckers on PC Zone recently reviewed Gothic 3 and found it very decent enough to award it 85%. You can read the review here.
