About SpellForce – Heroes & Magic
SpellForce – Heroes & Magic is a turn-based strategy game with deep RPG mechanics, set in the fantasy world of EO. The player controls one of three races, either Humans, Orcs or Dark Elves. The game is separated in two layers: the strategic, empire-building map, where your heroes and armies travel around, gather resources, fight monsters or enemy troops and conquer mines, farms or entire cities. When two armies meet on the battlefield, the game switches to a simultaneously turn-based tactics mode, where the player becomes a general and commands their units directly.

SpellForce – Heroes & Magic offers over 45 different units, among them are Footmen, Knights, Archers, Catapults, Orc Shamans, Dark Elf Sorceresses and many more, each with their unique strengths and weaknesses and some with special abilities. Manoeuvring on hexagons, the aim is to take down the enemy without suffering too many casualties. As your units gain XP, they level up and become stronger with each fight they win. Each heroes and unit can gather and equip different gear and choose new abilities from unique skill trees. While upgrading and maintaining your armies, you also have to overlook your duties as an Lord of your ever-growing empire: Develop your cities, make sure the flow of resources rises and also extend your territory.


  • Craft your own fantasy empire: Expand, Explore, Exploit and Exterminate. And no, we don’t think it’s a 4X game – do you?
  • Lead your heroes: Carry the battle to your opponents and defeat them.
  • A world of magic: Heroes and units can cast Lightning Strikes or Fear Spells, can stun foes or heal companions.

  • 3 playable races: Orcs, Humans, Dark Elves & their iconic heroes await your commands.
  • 6 neutral races to ally with or fight against: Gargoyles, Shadows, Elves, Dwarves, Barbarians and Trolls are either loyal companions or fearsome enemies on the battlefield.
  • Over 30 different units to muster and to lead into combat.
