Featuring a combination of RPG storytelling and real-time strategy, SpellForce III: Reforced takes place in the year 518, where the Crown has all but vanquished a group of renegade mages in a campaign know was the Mage Wars.
Victory came at a cost, though, as regions have fallen into anarchy, with refugees roaming the lands in search of sanctuary, and a plague known as the Bloodburn is running rampant.
SpellForce III: Refaced has been streamlined for console players with intuitive pad integration and a revamped UI, allowing for a smoother learning experience of the game’s mechanics. Along the way, you’ll strengthen and command one of three factions — Elves, Orcs, and Humans — and prepare your units for massive battles, using strategic advantages such as scouting and visibility to overwhelm your opponents.
