SpellForce 3 Closed Beta Begins

Publisher THQ Nordic and developer Grimlore Games now offer closed beta access to SpellForce 3, a promising sign for the RTS/RPG sequel. They accompany the news with a multiplayer tutorial trailer showing off gameplay. The beta will run through July, and they provide this schedule of how features will roll out:

In this closed beta, developer Grimlore Games aims to finalize the game balancing, answering the kind of questions that keep them up at night, like: are human marksmen too strong, and is it too expensive to train orcish marauders? With player input, the results of the SpellForce 3 multiplayer beta will answer those questions and more, helping to make the game even better when it launches later this year.

The SpellForce 3 multiplayer beta will run for several weeks and receive a number of updates. The human faction will make its initial assault on May 19th, and will be playable on 1vs1-maps, with the orcs arriving a week later. Here is the planned schedule in full:

  • 19th of May: Humans, 1vs1
  • 26th of May: Orcs, 1vs1
  • 2nd of June: Elves, 1vs1
  • 9th of June: all three factions in 1vs1 battles
  • 16th of June: all three factions in 2vs2 battle
  • 23rd of June: all three factions in 3vs3 battle
  • 30th of June: One map from Singleplayer- campaign playable in the beta
