SpellForce 3: Soul Harvest is an expansion to the third installment of the SpellForce series, combining real-time strategy with RPG. Grimlore Games studio is responsible for its creation and was released by THQ Nordic company. This is a standalone add-on and as such does not require a basic version of SpellForce 3.
SpellForce 3: Soul Harvest takes place three years after the events shown in the SpellForce 3. Although the inhabitants of Eo managed to cope with the devastating plague, the dreams of peace turned out to be illusory. The kingdom of dwarves is on the verge of civil war, and a mysterious sect of dark elves began to accumulate human souls for unknown purposes. In these turbulent times, players take on the role of the disgraceful General Nortander, who is sent by the queen to fight on many fronts.
SpellForce 3: Soul Harvest introduces a handful of changes to the basic version of the game. Two new races appeared in the game in the form of dwarves and dark elves, and the earlier three factions were significantly diversified. Each of them has three unique heroes with different specializations, and the list of their abilities has been extended by new options. What's more, all races offer different units and unique gameplay mechanics, so you can play them differently. In addition, they received support from flying troops, which allows them to use new tactics.
Important changes have taken place in the raw material system. In Soul Harvest, a sectoral system of resources was added, based on the global distribution of goods and the aforementioned exceptional mechanics of individual factions.
SpellForce 3: Soul Harvest offers a new feature campaign and additional multiplayer options as well as the ability to create your own maps.
Soul Harvest's audiovisual setting is not very different from the basic version of the game. However, the creators were tempted to refresh the interface to make it much more transparent.
