SpellForce 2 - Demons of the Past


Dear Community,

many of you have asked - what news about the future of SpellForce? We've kept you waiting but now there's news:

Currently we're producing a new AddOn for SpellForce2, that will connect all stories of the previous parts and will bring them to an exciting finale. The AddOn will be named "Demons of the Past" and will feature many well-known and -liked characters from the whole SpellForce-history.

Production lies in the trusted hands of Mind over Matter-studio, I myself will be part as counselor and writer.

You can look forward to an ingenious new adventure from the SpellForce-Realm.

So long

Lornik

Well, classic demons will surely feature, as will Nameless, Undead and other races. But there will be no new playable race.

So long

That's cool. I hope you can put Udwin in too. (The ghost dude from Spellforce: The Order of Dawn, who gets up from the mine. You find out that he went to Bagra Gor to find more about demons and ancient knowledge).

Maybe you could always feature a new race like the Undead, though. They should be easy to make, since I know NPC race of undead already exists in the game... or am I wrong?

Was hoping for a whole new Spellforce, but who knows! Good luck!

So now there is also a official announcement of "Demons of the Past". Please read it all - it will be good for you.

Quote:
SpellForce 2 – Demons Of The Past
September 20, 2013

And the end of an era arrives October 24th
Nordic Games is sad to announce that SpellForce 2 - Demons Of The Past, the final add-on of the series, is out October 24th for PC, because it is the last of its kind…

Demons Of The Past is the final in the endearing Spellforce 2 series and like its earlier incarnations combines RPG and RTS elements that puts players right at the centre of the mysterious and wonderful SpellForce universe. Demons Of The Past adds five new maps, offering eight in total to explore.

The stand alone add-on will be available to purchase from Steam priced USD/EUR 19.99, GBP 17.99 and all other reputable outlets, including those made from bricks.

Following on from previous add-on Faith In Destiny, players can now conclude their journey with Demons Of The Past where the fate of Eo rests in the players’ hands. Along the way players will meet old and new faces – will they be of help or hindrance?

“Demons Of The Past is the final add-on for SpellForce 2. We’ve gone all-out to ensure it’ll be a fulfilling and conclusive end to the ever-popular series. The compelling story will make players want to fight to save the world of Eo from evil,” said Gennaro Giani, Localization and Production Manager at Nordic Games and also Nordic's first internally bred SpellForce nerd. “Fans of the SpellForce series are amongst the most involved and motivated. With the new content we’ve tried to make sure it has exactly that unique and magic SpellForce feel to it.”

As the evil wrath of Zazhut ways heavy over the land of Eo, everyone has given up hope that the land will be defended; it’s now down the player to save the world. With over 50 quests and a number of side quests there is 25 hours worth of new gameplay to explore. Players will have the bonus of conjuring new spells and capturing new weapons that provides fresh appeal yet is faithful to the SpellForce world.

SpellForce 2: Faith in Destiny was released for PC in 2012. Joining forces with a group of diverse heroes and a dragon as trustful companions, players fight to gain information about this mysterious new enemy and thereby discover their own true destiny. Players assume the role of a young man who is supposed to release the entire world of Eo from the threat of a new and nameless evil.

SpellForce 2: Demons of the Past is out on October 24th for PC, priced USD/EUR 19.99, GBP 17.99.

END OF MESSAGE AND OF THE SPELLFORCE 2 SERIES. And before someone asks: Yes, we are working on “3”

Here you can find more informations about the game and new screenshots.

Unfortunately, "Demons of the Past" will be adjourned to 16th January 2014. More details in this press release:

SpellForce 2 – Demons Of The Past Adjourned
October 10, 2013

The end of an era pushed to January 16th 2014
To ensure a fully formed gaming experience, Nordic Games has announced it will now release SpellForce 2 – Demons Of The Past on January 16th 2014 due to additional features in the multiplayer department.

Demons Of The Past will feature the popular free game mode, where the tales of the single player campaign can be experienced in a new way i.e. with other players cooperatively. To top it off, a new survival mode will be implemented with distinctive objectives and gameplay. More detailed information on the specifics of the new modes will be released in due time.

“We had the choice to either release the single player part first, then follow-up with the new multiplayer modes later, or release it all in one go. We opted for the latter,” said Gennaro Giani, Localization and Production Manager at Nordic Games. “Of course, this was not an easy decision to make, but it reflects our uncompromising standards when it comes delivering a comprehensive gaming experience to every fan/gamer out there.”

Demons Of The Past is the final in the endearing SpellForce 2 series and like its earlier incarnations is a mix between an RPG and RTS that puts players right at the centre of the mysterious and wonderful SpellForce universe. Demons Of The Past adds five new maps, offering eight in total to explore.

Continuing the story from previous add-on Faith In Destiny, players can now conclude their journey with Demons Of The Past where the fate of Eo rests in the players’ hands. Along the way players will meet old and new faces – will they be of help or hindrance?

SpellForce 2: Demons of the Past is out on January 16th for PC, priced USD/EUR 19.99, GBP 17.99.

The first Teaser Trailer of SpellForce 2 - Demons of the Past was going online today. Have Fun!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGtzRXxBrOo

Quote:
Nordaim:
As the Shapers foresaw, so it happened.

Noradim:
Wie die Former es vorhergesagt haben, so ist es auch eingetreten.

Soulcarrier:
It was his destiny. There was nothing we could do.

Seelenträger:
Es war sein Schicksal. Es gab nichts, was wir hätten tun können.

Ereon:
He gave me the power of knowledge, just like he gave you the power of creation, Ulm!

Ereon:
Er hat mir die Macht des Wissens gegeben, genauso wie er Dir die Macht der Schöpfung gegeben hat, Ulm!

Zarach:
Don't call me that, brother! I'm no longer Ulm, and I can't see why you'd do this "offer the friendly hand" thing right now.

Zarach:
Nenn mich nicht so! Ulm bin ich schon lange nicht mehr. Und was ich nicht begreife ist Dein plötzliches "Die Hand zur Freundschaft reichen"-Gehabe. Ausgerechnet jetzt.

Avatar:
I might look young on the outside, but the Dragonblood, running in my veins prolongs the lives of our kind beyond human standards. I'm over 150 years old.

Avatar:
Mein Äußeres mag jung wirken, doch dank des Drachenblutes in meinen Adern wird mein Leben weit über die menschliche Lebensspanne hinaus verlängert. Ich bin über 150 Jahre alt.

Watcher of Souls:
Eternal peace, stranger. I am the Watcher of Souls, and my duty is to watch over the undisturbed rest of the fallen.

Wächterin der Seelen:
Ewigen Frieden, Fremdling. Ich bin die Wächterin der Seelen und es ist meine Aufgabe über die letzte Ruhe der Gefallenen zu wachen.

King Ulf:
If it's the Nameless, then we fight at your side, Shaikan. This scourge must not enter the City of our Gods. We have to fight for our freedom, even after Death.

König Ulf:
Wenn dies wirklich die Namenlosen sind, dann schulden wir es Euch, dass wir an Eurer Seite kämpfen, Shaikan. Diese Plage darf nicht in die Stadt der Götter gelangen. Wir müssen für unsere Freiheit einstehen, selbst im Tod.

Caine:
Back away from her!

Caine:
Zurück! Lasst sie in Ruhe!

Kelar:
I'm not your enemy, demon hunter.

Kelar:
Ich bin nicht Euer Feind, Jäger des Abgrunds.

Caine:
What did you call me? Who are you?

Caine:
Wie habt Ihr mich gerade genannt? Wer seid Ihr?

Caine:
Just what my old bones needed – a fight like that to feel young again.

Caine:
Meine alten Knochen haben genau so einen Kampf gebraucht, um sich wieder jung zu fühlen.
