Xeres’ Return is one of the biggest modifications released for Gothic 2. The development was officially started on January 5, 2005 by Daniel Bonrath, who found the Teutonic Team which is now Clockwork Origins. The mod provides more than 100 hours of fun during one run, five different primary guilds and nine secondary guilds with more than 400 interesting and varying quests. It contains many cool and unique features and still gets patches and updates of the (German) dubbing to complete it. Content updates with new quests are also possible in the future. It’s available for download via the Gothic modification manager Spine. It is available in German language, the English and Polish version are partially translated by hand while the rest is completed via an automatic translation using Spine and the DeepL translator.
Scripting and project lead was done by Daniel Bonrath. Sebastian Frenzel wrote many quests and part of the main story, composed the soundtrack and also worked on level design and the German dubbing. Over all the years there were more than 20 team members working on different parts of the modification.
Download is available via Spine.
