The scores are in for the real-time strategy RPG
We all love a prequel, right? After all, it tells us the backstory and answers some of the questions looming in our gaming minds as to how events unfolded.
In SpellForce III, players are taken back to the war-torn times leading up to the disastrous event that paved the way for the original two games in the franchise. With a unique combination of RTS and Top-Down RPG, players will embark on a 30-hour plus campaign to unravel the secrets of Eo, whilst encountering different factions and armies.
The game features Elves, Orcs and Human factions, all of which are customizable and ready for you to strengthen and command. Explore vast, detailed maps as you lead your army across Eo capturing pivotal zones – edging closer to the convocation ritual that sparked a new age for this fantasy world.
