SpellForce 3 Set for PAX East! Get All the Details Here!

by on March 1, 2017

THQ Nordic officially announced this week that SpellForce 3 is going to be shown next month at PAX East. The upcoming game is an RTS/RPG hybrid and a prequell to SpellForce: The Order of Dawn. The game will be displayed at THQ Nordic’s show floor booth, booth #20037, on the show floor from March 10-12 at PAX East in Boston, Massachusetts.

The upcoming game is set in the war-torn times of the world of Eo, leading to a cataclysmic event where the first two parts take place. Players will be able to take command of troops and level up their gear and skill level for their party of heroes. They can then strengthen their forces and wage battle to take over specific zones to expand their own sovereign territories. These world-changing events will then lead up to the convocation ritual. Here’s some of the game’s key features (Courtesy of THQ Nordic):

  • RTS/RPG Mix: Unique gameplay combining RTS and Top-Down RPG genres

  • RTS: the RTS part focuses on macromanagement (overall strategy, conquering of zones, managing large groups of units)

  • RPG: the RPG part puts emphasis on micromanaging the party of heroes (skills of ALL heroes of the party have assigned keyboard bindings) in battles

  • Create & Customize: assemble your party of heroes and choose between numerous combinations of different skill builds

  • Strengthen and command your army: Prepare your troops and fight the mother of all battles. Moreover, players can utilize a wide array of strategic choices (like e.g. terrain, troop formations, visibility, scouting etc.) that would make Sun Tzu proud

  • Epic Storyline: Unravel a deep and sophisticated story, eventually leading up to the events that cause the world-changing convocation ritual

  • Rich universe & lore: Explore the world Eo and discover intrigues, secrets and a lot of loot for your hero Extensive single-player campaign: 30+ hours, even more when you manage to discover all the things Grimlore put in the world

  • Multiplayer: Strong multiplayer component with various modes – Play cooperatively or in versus battles

PAX East will feature the first time gamers will be able to get their hands on the game. The demo on the show floor will also feature the game’s comprehensive multiplayer mode.
