    Since they said Open World I hope it is more like Sacred.

    Titan Quest 1 was also open world in a sense, each act was one continuous map.

    Is this like a release including all the expansion campaigns or is it just a base game update? Seems pretty good regardless.

    So I had previously skipped the main game and played Soul Harvest - quite enjoyed it.

    With this update coming soon - do you guys think it's worth it to play the original game now once before they update everything? Is there any mechanics in there that was actually better than the later expansions? Or should I just wait?

    I'd wait for reforced.

    Original had labourers carrying resources instead of them teleporting, but it doesn't add much in single player. New skill system is miles better, the original encouraged degenerate ability bar swapping to auras after every cast.

    I preferred the larger amount of units in the base game. When you trained a unit you usually got a whole bunch of them (each one can be controlled individually it is not like DoW) which lead to larger looking armies. The output number was reduced in the expansions and individual units got a boost to their stats. The pathing is good and the large armies were no problem so I was a bit surprised by that move. I guess they tied to promote micro management and the importance of individual units, which is important for mutiplayer. But in the campaign I prefer to command a grand army and not just a small warband. Overall its mostly a cosmetic change and up to personal taste whether one likes it or not.

    As I understand it you still have to buy the expansions to access that content.

    Impressions on this update?
    I remember liking pretty much most of what Spellforce 3 had to offer... Except actually playing it, because the RTS part felt "meh" at best.

    It is. I had SpellForce 3 on Steam, now it's Reforced.

    It's on there now, but the link was dead literally 2 minutes ago. The Spellforce 3 in my library is now called Spellforce 3 Legacy and I don't have the new one yet.

    How does it work?
    You instal Reforced and it loads all the campaigns?
    Or you need to download Soul Harvest and Fallen God separately?

    If GOG get their shit together, I'll try it and find out. The new version appeared in my library, but there is no way to download the thing, lol.

    Talking about Steam version:

    I just downloaded "Reforced", and Soul Harvest campaign is not installed (needs to be downloaded). However, there seems to be "Old Halavashshshsh" (whatever the name) installed. And "Fallen God" is not visible in the menu of "Reforced".

    Maybe "Old Halavashshsh" is "Fallen God"? or skirmishes they advertised? or something different?

    Unfortunately, I cannot play it right now. Hopefully trying it tomorrow.

    Old Haalayash is the demo mission that came out before Spellforce 3 and was included in the digital extras of Spellforce 3.

    Anyone here tried the campaign in co-op? How does it work, is it fun? Do you create a character each, how does the RTS segments work? Split the base or one base each?

    Thinking it might be time for a second playthrough and wanna drag someone with me doing it.
