ABOUT SPELLFORCE 3:
The game’s events take place before those of SpellForce: The Order of Dawn. Players will find an epic story with over 30 hours of the single-player campaign that can also be played in co-op. The game allows to create your own unique heroes, develop skill sets and build an army to fight in legendary battles that blend together RTS and top-down RPG genres.
It is the year 518. The rebellion of the renegade mages, known as the Mage Wars, has been quashed by the Crown. However, it was a Pyrrhic victory: Whole regions have fallen into anarchy, refugees roam the lands in search of shelter, and a mysterious, deadly plague called the “Bloodburn” has arisen and is spreading rapidly.
