The new World Map.
Moo - I say!
Fighting against the Arenachampion
Too many snakes in one place
These blood trails always lead to Shadowbeasts, some really nasty creatures in Gothic universe.
Thorus is a really important character in Forsaken Gods
There are still choices to be made.
There are many "escorting" missions and they are one of the most annoying aspects of the game due to the weak AI of NPC's in path finding.
Vengard doesn't have that magical shield around it anymore.
You can still transform into animals.
One of the annoying bugs. Lee, one of the main NPC's is near the borders of Nordmar instead of Vengard where he should be. making him nearly impossible to find for people who aren't aware of the bug.
You can still continue the game after finishing it. My stats after completing the game with nearly every creature killed and every quest done. though pay attention that You start the game with lvl 10.
