SpellForce 3 might be one of the most highly detailed isometric role-playing games we've ever seen (we saw it up close at E3 -- gorgeous), but on top of its visuals SpellForce 3 also has an interesting and engaging combination of RTS and RPG that utterly works.
Today the cats at THQ Nordic have let us know there's a free preview weekend happening for the game over at GOG.com (click here to get stuck in), while also releasing a new faction trailer highlighting the game's Elven race.
Beautiful, proud and warm at first glance, but a look behind the majestic buildings and smiling faces gives another perspective. A racist, remorseless aristocracy hunting down those of different minds. But the spark of a rebellion gives hope for a change.
In this new video, the elvish capital of Finon Mir is shown, with a band of renegades fighting Orcs, Men and Elves alike in their search for the truth.
