SpellForce 2: Shadow Wars is a video game which employs both real time strategy and role-playing game elements and was created by German game developers Phenomic. It is a sequel to their 2003 release SpellForce: The Order of Dawn and its two sequels, SpellForce: The Breath of Winter and SpellForce: Shadow of the Phoenix.SpellForce 2: Shadow Wars was followed by SpellForce 2: Dragon Storm and SpellForce 2: Faith in Destiny, with a third and final sequel SpellForce 2: Demons of the Past released by Nordic Games GmbH in January 2014.The “SpellForce” series stands out from the other sequels in the series, as one of the few releases attempting to fuse the role-playing game and real-time strategy genres; similar games include Dungeons & Dragons: Dragonshard and Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos.
The role-playing game aspects of SpellForce 2 parallel games such as Diablo, Diablo II, and Sacred in character development, skill trees, equipment customization and top-down isometric viewing. However, the capacity to control multiple heroes often makes the game play comparable to that in the Baldur’s Gate or Neverwinter Nights video games.The real time strategy aspects of SpellForce 2 mirror the Warcraft fantasy real time strategy games. These include the ability to control several separate factions such as “the Realm” (humans, elves, and dwarves), “the Pact” (dark elves, gargoyles, and shadows), and “the Clans” (orcs, trolls, and barbarians). Each faction has its own individual troop and building types.SpellForce 2 has several game modes including campaign mode (expositional), skirmish mode (real time strategy based), and free play (similar to campaign mode but without an overarching plot). SpellForce 2 can also be played cooperatively or competitively in multiplayer mode.
