Here is a list of some features that are available in CoE 3.

  • Many monsters and many special abilities. Some examples right below.
  • Assassins that make an assassination attack before combat starts.
  • Catapults and Hill Giants that can throw boulders during sieges.
  • Immortal Liches and Vampires.
  • Exploding phoenixes (and they are immortal too).
  • And many many more monsters....
  • New weapon system, attacks are divided into pierce, slash or blunt damage (magic attacks have other types too). Skeletons are difficult to injure with piercing weapons and you should preferably use slashing weapons against treemen, etc.
  • Hotseat and network support for multiplayer games.
  • Random maps.
  • Random events.
  • 16 different classes to choose from. And they are quite different from each other, both in what resources they need and what kind of rituals or special abilities they have.
  • Spell system with about 50 magic paths.
  • Magic items.
  • Permanent battle afflictions.
  • Horrors.
  • Stealth and invisibility. Scouts needed to detect stealthy troops, something better (a star spawn or a beast bat will work) needed to detect the invisible ones. There are shape changers too.

Really? All sites that sell something should price it the same? I dont think that happens with anything.

BTW its also on sale at GamersGate for about the same as Steam depending on what peoples preferences are.

What is your point? Steam is like the "Dollar Store" of game publishers.

We would have to wait until the results of that tactic are felt before it gets tried anyplace else.

Point is... The price of the game is determined mostly by the developer.
Not steam or desura or what have you. These game clients get a cut like a tax that is it.
As far as I know....

As far as I know Steam has the right to charge what they want.
Thats one of the reasons some developers donĀ“t want to use it.

...also illwinter changed the price on Desura to 7,50 now, so stop that discussion and buy it already! ;)

Buy this. It has things in it.

It's fun for a while to try out the different factions, but ultimately the game is let down by stupid AI. That's a pity because for the same price you can buy two or three excellent games with better longevity.
