The title supports three player online or three player LAN co-op throughout the campaign, and in the Multiplayer mode where you can team up against A.I. opponents (i.e., "comp stomping"). What's interesting about the co-op here is that you can actually specify what your buddies can and can't do. For instance, maybe one of your friends wants to just focus on the resource management/base-building aspects of the game. Perhaps your other friend just wants to control the heroes and army units. SpellForce 3 lets you do just that.

The main conceit of this game (and its predecessors) is combining the macromanagement of an RTS game with the loot and leveling mechanics of an RTS. You will control a hero while at the same time managing resources, directing upgrades, and building support units from your base. There are certainly similarities to draw between it and Blizzard's Warcraft 3. The third entry, though, is trying to change things up a bit by introducing the idea of "sectors." Essentially, each sector is its own independent fiefdom, in a sense, where all upgrades and resources that are researched or gathered will only apply to that sector. This is different from the kind of global approach you normally see in RTS games.
