About

Warlords Battlecry III further expands the Battlecry tradition of featuring persistent RPG-like fantasy heroes with its retinue of loyal followers fighting massive battles in the Warlords' world of Etheria. It is a true sequel to Warlords Battlecry I & II, featuring many familiar races and troop-types, while also adding some new ones into the mix.
Warlords Battlecry III continue to perfect its automated feature system, greatly reducing gameplay micromanagement and quickly proving to be the holy grail of RTS games among gamers of the genre.
While being a strong RTS outright, there are also numerous activities for players to engage in between battles, such as obtaining titles and awards, trading and purchasing items & retinue members, and even an upgradeable castle to reflect your importance and influence in the world of Etheria.
Extra features included in Warlords Battlecry III are specifically geared to please the legions of previous Battlecry players, including the removal of hero and unit caps, the addition of new special abilities for high-level heroes and the creation of an intuitive hero system. All of these features, coupled with new races and hero classes, new spells and items, and new building and dragons meld to form a Real-Time Strategy game that once again raises the benchmark for other games in the genre. Warlords Battlecry III is poised to receive even greater accolades than the previous award-winning titles in the Warlords Battlecry series.
Features:
Sixteen different races, twenty-eight different classes.
More than one hundred and thirty spells over thirteen different spheres of magic. New Magic Items many of them special & rare, some even able to cast spells.
Plaguelords, Saurians, Swarm. The old Human side will be split into Knights & Empire. This will include new units and new buildings.
All of your old favorites plus eight new classes combine together in a new hero system that is easier to learn but harder to master than before. Take heroes beyond level 50. Gain levels while actually playing the game.
Rock & Lava terrain, along with Jungle, Ruins and subterranean caverns.
Players will be able to produce six different coloured dragons all with unique abilities and breath weapons.
Many different shops will allow players to purchase items & troops to aid them in battle. The variety of different Lairs will produce neutral units that will roam the map seeking out trouble.
* Multiplayer mode is functional, but not supported.

Long not played, Differences from the old Version: Summoned Units are no longer permanent = > die by themselves after a Period of time. New Magic page with Timespell's Otherwise still makes the same Fun as 8 Years ago

I remember when I tried the WBC2 demo on a magazine disc and immediately got hooked. While I prefer the character progression and individualisation of WBC2,WBC3 still feels very much the same in terms of game dynamics and atmosphere. Another plus is the new campaign mode, which is not based on conquering regions but follows a story line and sub plots on the map.

The game itself is a lot of fun ... But unfortunately there are many Problems with Win 7 too at least with me ... Crashes, starts now and then not even ... It would have been a great pity to remake! Missing Steam Cloud unfortunately reduces the fun even as you always have to secure the Hero File, otherwise all heroes are gone. I hope that will be improved!

Oh, yes, the good old Days. You used to find what I was looking for the Game. Push heroes to high Levels over hundreds of Battles, only to lose them forever in a careless Moment. Of Course, there are hundreds of Ways to cheat, but I never wanted to join in, so continue with Hero Number 27, start with Level 1, so that you become a great and unique Hero.

So I loved the 2nd part of the game but the here is just great when mann has it out again like what funkt everything goes super fast and man can gamble on hard again. Only that's complete in english is I personally find not so good as I'm not the foreign language type and some problems had to outset but because of that it still gets a thick you upwards:)

If you want to play the legendary VERSION of the best RPG real-time strategy game, you've come to the right place. You keep the Hero over the many Battles, whether It's campaign, Multiplayer, Or random maps. Simply unique 16 Peoples and countless different Units. You can Choose 29 Different Classes for the Hero with countless Skills and Spells. Warriors, Umbrella servants, Healers Necromancers, Summoners and Traders to name just a few Classes. Only the Graphics are a bit old and it's completely in English.

While The Predecessor offers a few new Features and some new Breeds, this makes the Game rather more confusing and straight Magic and Abilities rather special. But above All very unstable and constantly crashes (Win7). The hero system is somewhat unbalanced (fight heroes strongest from my Point of view, and that messes up Balancing from a high Level when you have an overpowering Figure). Only for Fans and Nostalgics, but I recommend the Predecessor. (In addition, on Steam In English only)
