About  (from JoWooD)

In an age of darkness and evil, all hope seems but a distant memory. But prophecy tells of a human bound to immortality; bound to change the destiny of many. SpellForce features a unique blend of Real-Time-Strategy and Role-Playing-Game elements that bring a fresh perspective to the genre.


SpellForce is a program developed by JoWooD. The most used version is spellforce v1.52, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is spellforce.exe. The software installer includes 14 files and is usually about 1.73 GB (1,854,200,920 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 10. While about 41% of users of SpellForce come from Germany, it is also popular in the United States and United Kingdom.
