In SpellForce 2 - Shadow Wars, the player takes over the role of the Avatar, preventing the world of Eo and its many races from being overrun by a sinister new enemy. You will be able to solve quests and overcome obstacles as in classical RPGs, but also experiences strategic challenges while leading armies as in an RTS - thus offering a complete synthesis of both genres in a perfect blend.
You as the Avatar will try to resist the invasion of the Pact, forcing you to forge new alliances to oppose them... but you soon realize that even more sinister forces are at work right within your own body. You will in turn lead each one of three factions, The Realm, The Clan and The Pact and build bases to gather resources and rally troops - to prepare for the epic battles that are the hallmark of SpellForce! You will also be supported by a band of heroes who are customizable with a multitude of unique skills, spells and a great variety of items, weapons and armor.
The forces of light and the minions of darkness will clash in 2006!
