Experience an epic story
Spellforce: The prequel to The Order of Dawn, Spellforce 3 is the perfect place to start your Spellforce adventure. It took place in 518, after the rebellion of the renegade mages was brutally suppressed by the royal family. However, the civil war threw the kingdom into chaos, and countless refugees were forced to flee the war, while a terrible plague known as “Bloodburn” spread across the land.
Rondar Lacaine stepped into this vortex, a priest who claimed to have the solution to all the misfortunes of the kingdom, who called for the total banishment of all magic. Lacaine begs you, a disgraced former corporal of the Queen’s Wolf Guard, to help him end the plague, but are Lacaine’s intentions pure, or are you just a pawn in a bigger game?
