Plot[edit | edit source]

The game takes place in Kingdom of Ehb 150 years after the events of the first part. The 10th Legion, which had kept the kingdom stable for 400 years, was almost completely wiped out. 30 years before the start of the game, Jane Cassinder rallied the people in eastern Eba and, with the support of the Azunai church, blamed the death of King Hendrik on the 10th Legion. Many people joined her rebellion, and, a year after the death of the monarch, Cassinder managed to exterminate almost the entire legion, destroying most of the legionnaires in the forest Rukkenval. The young Queen Roslyn army she drove to Glitterdelve Mines (Glitterroy), stripping it of almost all power. However, a small group of legion descendants remained under the tutelage of a man calling himself Venerable Odo - the organization's former intelligence officer ...

The player's character begins his journey by arriving at the Montbbaron estate, a place where the surviving legionnaires were secretly invited. It turns out that robbers - lescanzi attacked the estate. With the help of the surviving Legion warrior Martin Giscard, the hero goes in search of Odo, who takes refuge in an old Legion Forte near Vranov Yar.

Upon arrival at Fortecia, the hero begins to find out the reasons for the circumstances, and also searches for other descendants of the legion. Vranov Yar is occupied by mercenaries Jane In a cave near the settlement, the player finds the first ally: the archon Anjali or the knight Lucas (depending on the chosen main character). The heroes go to Rukkenval to the place of the last battle between the army of the legion and Jane, and there they meet Glacier Youth, who shares with them the power to open Transitions to a parallel world.

With the help of the transition, the heroes are transported to the Upper Vranov Yar occupied by mercenaries and enter into a battle with one of Jane's commanders - Rajani. After the victory and liberation of the settlement, the heroes go to the city of Stonebridge (Kamennomost) in order to restore Great Forte of Kamennomost there. On the way, they meet Katarina - the illegitimate daughter of Hugh Montbarron and Lucas's sister. In East Marsh, they help a squad of soldiers commanded by Lord Devonsea free the prisoners and get out of the swamps, so that they can come to the aid of Queen Roslyn.

After the opening of the Great Fortecia in Kamennomost, the player tries to enlist the support of the queen's army and the council of guilds - the so-called masters who rule the city. Through the passage, he travels to the snow-covered highlands, to the Glitterroye mines, in which he helps Queen Roslyn and Lord Devonsy to repel an attack by Jane Cassinder. Back in town, the heroes suppress the Cyclops rebellion in the Great Foundry, resolving the conflict between the guild and the workers, and also clear the underground Crypts of the robbers. With the help of the council, the heroes meet Reinhart a - the descendant of the greatest magician of the 10th legion.

At the same time, the city is under attack - mechanical automatons get out of control and attack residents. They are commanded by a dangerous criminal The Dapper Old Gent - as it turns out later - a former legionnaire who survived the events of thirty years ago. The player has to decide the fate of Frant, and his choice will affect the further relationship between Stone Bridge and the Legion.

With the help of two armies, the player attacks the Spire - the cathedral of the Azunite church, owned by Jane Cassinder. At the gate he meets Rajani (if he left her alive) and other archons, who stopped believing Jane and no longer follow her. The heroes make their way inside the cathedral, where they engage in a battle with Jane, in which she is defeated. However, she manages to escape to Rukkenval, where she awakens the ancient Creator God. After defeating him, the player meets up with the Youngster and decides Jane's fate.

Setting[edit | edit source]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Compared to the previous games in the series, the gameplay of the third part has been greatly transformed, slightly moving away from the Hack and Slash system in favor of the plot component. The player has the opportunity to choose one of the sides at key points in the game. His actions and decisions directly affect the attitude of other characters towards him.

The player still controls the character from a third person, but the control system itself has changed dramatically - instead of automatic combat and the mechanics of "Point-and-click", the player controls the characters directly using the keyboard or controller. To attack the enemy, you must first turn in his direction, and then press the attack button.

The party system has been abolished, and instead of it the hero can choose only one companion, which is controlled by the computer (or another player when playing in multiplayer). The player is free to equip and develop a companion as well as himself. In case of death of your character, the companion will be able to resurrect him, making the passage a little easier. It works the other way too.

Co-op[edit | edit source]

Up to four players can take part in multiplayer mode, however the game will save progress only for the player who initiated the game.

In console versions, a second player can control a companion character using a second controller on the same device.

Feats and achievements[edit | edit source]
