Demos are coming back! – Ed] Oh, there’s also a new trailer, detailing the Elven faction, which you can see below.

SpellForce 3 Coming Later This Year

Yo Dawg: SpellForce 3 [official site] is almost ready to once again put an RPG in your RTS and let you play both at the same time. Double feature!

We’d barely heard from SpellForce 3 since its announcement in 2014, but now a new Steam page promises a 2016 release for this prequel. Jump the break for all the details, while I go beg Alice to not fire me for opening my post with memes from the last decade [Ah jeez, I can’t resist appeals to my illusion of power -ed.].
