The famous developer, Nordic Games has opened a separate studio in Munich, Germany to continue work on the Spellforce series.
The newly founded studio features some experienced developers that have worked on some of the major games such as The Settlers 2, Knight and Merchants, Cultures and of course Spellforce 2: Shadow Wars.
Nordic Games has revealed that this new studio will allow them to extend their portfolio even more.
There hasn’t been a lot of news on Spellforce 3 since its gameplay reveal at Gamescom earlier this year, but with a dedicated team working on it from this day forwards, we can expect more news in the near future.
The series is basically an amalgam of real time strategy and role playing games. The RPG aspects are somewhat similar to that of Diablo and Diablo 2 in terms of skill trees, character development, equipment customization and the top down view.
On the other hand, RTS aspects allow you take control of different factions which include The Realm, The Clans and The Pact.
The Realm faction features humans, elves and dwarves, The Clan features orcs, trolls and barbarians, and The Pact features gargoyles, shadows and dark elves. Each faction has its unique troops and building types.
