by Rainier on May 27, 2010 @ 2:28 p.m. PDT

Disciples III: Renaissance is a standalone turn-based RPG/strategy game set in an expansive fantasy world, offering players action, adventure and glory. Stunning 3D environments, three playable races, and multiplayer functionality all combine to offer an outstanding gameplay experience.

Disciples III: Renaissance is the next title in the Disciples series and represents a leap forward in the evolution of the turn-based RPG/strategy genre. Building on the successes of the first two games, DIII introduces a host of new features as well as the compelling gameplay that made the previous titles such hits.

As a Lord of one of the fantastical races of Nevendaar you must fight to restore your deity's rule over your world. There are three playable races to choose from; the Empire, the Elven Alliance and the notorious Legion of the Damned.

For the first time in the series the gloriously ominous and notoriously gloomy world of Disciples is rendered in full 3D, allowing the player to experience this realm as it should be. Disciples uses its own Virtual Dream engine to render the stunning 3D environments

Disciples III: Renaissance Factions Overview - The Empire

In Disciples III's mystical land of Nevendaar, three factions face off against one another for control of the world -- The Empire, The Legions of the Damned and the Elves. Each faction is fighting for a specific cause, be it complete domination of Nevendaar, or simply maintaining the balance between good and evil.

The creator of Nevendaar, the angel Bethrezen, gave birth to man. To him, they were the pinnacle of all his work and with their appearance in Nevendaar the creation of the world was finally complete. Bethrezen gifted his children with the divine boon, the freedom of will, and it is this gift that made them the most independent, but also the most unpredictable race in Nevendaar.



This race is a perfect reflection of its creator's personality: the improbable and incomprehensible combination of the true light that once shone in Bethrezen's soul, and eternal darkness which now possesses the Fallen. That is why people are so different – you can never tell whether a man standing before you is the noblest of mortals, or is lower than a snake and will kill you for a copper as soon as you turn your back on him. These days, men worship the Celestial Father and consider their former creator Bethrezen their worst enemy. They have always been a very religious race – and the duality of their nature is also well seen in their zeal. True faith is the power that guides the hands of the Empire's greatest warriors, holy knights and protectors of the faith, it helps the clerics to heal wounds and even push away death itself. And yet the same faith gives birth to fanatics, who are often more fearful to their own people than their enemies.

Men are the most disciplined race of Nevendaar, and they have produced many brilliant warriors and warlords and they are second to none when it comes to healing and blessing those fighting at their side for the glory of the Empire.

Key features:

  • Three playable races - The Empire, the Legions of the Damned and the Elven Alliance. Each race has its own unique units and city design.
  • Cities, locations, units and other game assets are now represented in full 3D.
  • Advances in the gameplay allow increased fluidity in multiplayer games and less downtime when playing alone.
  • A new upgrade system allows the player to assign attributes to your leaders. This RPG system employs inventories and new stats and abilities.
  • Visual representation of character's equipped armor, weapons and artifacts.
