|Spellforce 2 is a real-time strategy game (RTS) that also has role-playing game (RPG) elements. It consists of the original campaign, Shadow Wars, and a sequel and expansion, Dragon Storm. The fantasy art features beautifully designed units and armour sets, and cutscenes using in-game resources allow each scene to feature the hero and party with whatever gear has been equipped at the time, rather than using a pre-recorded scene. Although Spellforce 2 has units that appeared in the original Spellforce, the game art and models for many of these have been significantly changed.
||The Beasts are a non-playable faction in Spellforce 2 consisting of humanoid animal "beastmen", harpies, prehistoric raptors, and female human shamans. Like the playable factions, they have workers and production buildings, explore the map, and expand their territory. Some beast units are specific to a scenario and cannot be recruited from their buildings. This Spellforce 2 fantasy art gallery has screenshots of Beast units and buildings.
