2021’s Mod of the Year is an epic, open world Gothic II total conversion

Players have voted for an open world mod for a 16-year-old RPG like Mod 2021 of the Year on ModDB. The epic Gothic II Chronicles Of Myrtana total conversion was first released this month, but has been voted the best courage of the year by the community – beating people like Black Mesa: Blue Shift.

Gothic II was released back in 2005 as the latest well-received action RPG from Piranha Bytes – which would continue to create the similar Risen series and is currently working on ELEX II for a release date in March. The Chronicles Of Myrtana mod is a huge total conversion to Gothic II, featuring a new open world, skills, mechanics, history and even voice acting.

It’s available on both ModDB and Steam and will not be released in its entirety until December 10th – and players loved it right away. On Steam, it is currently rated as ‘Overwhelmingly Positive’ based on over 5000 reviews – in comparison, Gothic II itself is rated as just ‘Very Positive’ from around 6,500 reviews.

ModDB counted user votes for this year’s top 100 mods, and players named Chronicles of Myrtana as Players’ Choice Mod of the Year 2021. As ModDB notes, Chronicles of Myrtana “is a really huge mod that at this stage surpasses even the term ‘total conversion’. ” If you have a copy of Gothic II, it’s worth giving it a try – and if not, the base game is currently a 75% discount on Steam.

Happy New Year everyone.
