In SpellForce II the player takes over both roles - he is Commander of his troops and also a front fighting hero, solving quests and overcoming obstacles as in classical RPGs, but also leads armies as in an RTS. The Players character is supported by up to 5 heroes who can be summoned at special monuments - these will become available in stronger versions as play progresses and the player reveals more of the epic storyline. In most scenarios, which are placed in huge and detailed environments, the player leads one of three factions (Alliance of Light, Hordes of Chaos, Brotherhood of Darkness) and builds bases to gather resources and summon troops at monuments.

This successor to SpellForce: The Order of Dawn features a class-free character system that offers numerous variations on a player's strategy, giving the game high re-playability.

The most beautiful, perfect and deadly of the Dark Races -- the Dark Elves - are in league with the mysterious Shadows and are threatening to overrun the realm of men. Fighting against the invasion, players take on the role of Avatar, leading his band of heroes into combat against a sinister force while unraveling the truth behind this epic story. Avatar must forge new alliances in order to face the invasion and save the world of Eo.

In SpellForce 2: Shadow Wars players can:

  • Choose from over 100 Avatar skills, allowing players to develop individual characters and gameplay styles with a great variety of spells, items, weapons and armor.
  • Lead one of three fractions (The Realm, The Clan or The Pact), and build bases to gather resources and rally troops consisting of infantry, cavalry and flyers in order to be prepared for epic battles
  • Explore highly detailed and lush fantasy worlds
  • Conduct a single-player campaign with more than 50 hours of gameplay set in a persistent game world that is wrapped in a continuous, gripping storyline and a wealth of sub-quests.
  • Prove their skills through more than 30 multiplayer maps with different multiplayer modes like player vs. player and player vs. AI/monsters and special quests for co-op multiplayer

SpellForce 2: Shadow Wars will be released on April 24, 2006 at an SRP of $39.99.
