The great ice dragon Aryn, the Frostweaver who once almost froze the world is awakened by a Fial Darg (prince of darkness) that stole the elven queen Cenwen away from him. Cenwen saved the world from Aryn by calming him down and locking her self up with the mighty dragon. He wants to use the blood of the elven queen in a ritual to bring back the Dark Gods into the world of EO. With the elven queen gone chaos is once again ruling the lands. It's up to the player to restore order one more time.
Breath of Winter is the add-on for the previous year's SpellForce: The Order of Dawn. The gameplay is similar to the first game with a few added features like new enemies, hero runes of other races, over 150 items for your avatar, skirmish mode and co-op play.
