SpellForce 3’s new expansion has a hint of a TimeSplitters 2 remake, but it turned out to be a joke

Portal Video Games Chronicle noted that players found in SpellForce 3: Fallen God – the new expansion strategy role-playing THQ Nordic – a possible allusion to remake TimeSplitters 2.

Updated. THQ Nordic, upon request from Video Games Chronicle, commented on the players’ find in SpellForce 3: Fallen God. According to a spokesman for the publisher, the item with a hint of a remake of TimeSplitters 2 was added as a joke. “The purpose of these Easter eggs is just to have fun. When Koch Media and Deep Silver are ready to talk about TimeSplitters, they will definitely let themselves be heard, ” Nordic assured THQ. Below: the original text of the news.

As it was revealed shortly after its release, SpellForce 3: Fallen God allows you to get several items directly related to the already released and upcoming projects of THQ Nordic.

These games include Biomutant, an updated version of the original Gothic, the re-release of SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom, and the already mentioned remake of TimeSplitters 2.

“He’s finally coming! The iconic shooter that has stood the test of time is preparing to break into the age of modern gaming” reads the description of the item, titled TimeSplitters 2 Remake.

THQ Nordic acquired the rights to TimeSplitters (and Second Sight) in August 2018, and 12 months later announced the addition of one of the masterminds of the original series, Steve Ellis, to the team.

Ellis was called to “help chart the future course for the franchise” What exactly is included in THQ Nordic’s plans – updating old games or releasing new ones – the publisher then did not specify.
