An RPG/RTS hybrid that will be debuting on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and PS5 come December 7th 2021, SpellForce III Reforced puts players in the boots of a hero and of a general at the same time. You’ll be tasked with gathering your companions, solving quests, gaining experience and loot, leveling up and ultimately evolving your skills – all while you are taking command of an army, choosing the best tactics, building a magnificent base and getting your economy up and running to provide steady reinforcements. Yeah, there’s a lot going on here.
SpellForce III Reforced will come to Xbox and PlayStation with an intuitive gamepad integration and tailor-made UI in tow, allowing for smooth control of an RTS/RPG hybrid with complex mechanics. It’ll cost an SRP of $39.99/€39.99/£34.99 yet on the same day owners of the game on PC through Steam will find the SpellForce III Reforced Edition dropping as a free update.
But it won’t just be the base game and additionally to SpellForce III Reforced will be a couple of expansions. “Soul Harvest” and “Fallen God” will each be sold separately at an SRP of $19.99/€19.99. Each of these feature their own singleplayer campaign with 30+ hours of gameplay each, as well as new units and more. The whole package is also available at an SRP of $59.99/€59.99.
SpellForce III Reforced is a unique mix of an epic RPG storyline blended with accessible real-time strategy elements, designed to offer a riveting console experience to fans and newcomers alike. 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.
