London, February 15th. 2010; JoWooD Entertainment and DreamCatcher Games release exclusive new information on the next game in the SpellForce series. Designed as a standalone extension to “SpellForce 2”, the game will pick up on the predecessor’s widely praised story set in the well-known SpellForce fantasy universe. A multitude of new features, among them new units, buildings, spells and missions have been added in order to meet the high expectations towards a SpellForce add-on. The add-on’s story revolves around a mysterious force threatening the SpellForce world Eo. Playing as a powerful hero, you will help the Shaikan forge an alliance with others in order to oppose the rising threat and end the danger that threatens entire world!
“There’s a still huge amount of interest in the game in forums and player communities, and the new add-on clearly targets fans of the previous SpellForce titles,” explains Stefan Berger, Head of Publishing JoWooD Entertainment. “This expansion to the series has been built from the ground up as an add-on to offer new content to the many fans who still love SpellForce. They get new units, new monsters, factions, new maps and of course an entire new campaign story for the game universe they love. And who knows? Maybe this add-on could be a kind of introduction, or bridge maybe, to something much bigger!”
SpellForce 2 – Faith in Destiny is based on the proven SpellForce 2 engine which was already used in the previous games. This engine has now been upgraded with modern Shader effects in order to best convey the game’s atmosphere. The innovative combination of Role-Playing and Real-Time Strategy first introduced by Spellforce (2003) has held a huge fan base since its initial release and will be revitalized through the latest add-on.
Mysterious powers arise from shadow and darkness, forming a new threat to Eo, the world of SpellForce, ravaged by wars and violent intrigue. The blood of the legendary Shaikan flows through your veins – and the world’s fate is in your hands! Command powerful heroes, raise huge armies and legendary allies to support you and work together to defeat the threat of all-encompassing darkness. The burden of ancient blood rests heavy on you – honor this legacy.
