The development of SpellForce III Reforced console edition is going to take a little bit more time. Publisher THQ Nordic has announced a delay in the launch of the game, citing that in order to reach their goal of bringing the best RPG/RTS to consoles, developer Grimlore Games want to make sure the game is in the best possible shape before it gets released.
SpellForce III Reforced is a unique mix of an RPG storyline blended with real-time strategy elements. The game is designed to offer a unique console experience to fans and newcomers alike.
The game is set in 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.
SpellForce III Reforced console edition has been designed specifically for gamepad play. A new tailor-made UI has been incorporated to allow smooth control of the strategy/RPG gameplay. Players will create their own hero and embark on a campaign touted to last around 20 hours. During the campaign players will have to make choices that will alter the story – will you side with the Elves, Orcs or Humans?
As you progress you’ll meet new companions. Assemble a party that compliments your skills not only in gameplay, but also having an impact on the narrative. All party members have their own inventories which it is important that you carefully manage.
SpellForce III Reforced console edition will launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. The game will retail with an SRP of $39.99/€39.99/£34.99. In addition to the SpellForce III Reforced base game, two expansions will also be available on 7th June, 2022. Soul Harvest and Fallen God will each be sold separately at an SRP of $19.99/€19.99. Both expansions feature their own single-player campaign with a purported 30+ hours of gameplay, as well as new units and more. The whole package, called SpellForce III Reforced Complete Edition, will also be available at an SRP of $59.99/€59.99.
