Hi guys.. over my years on the net there was one constant thing that I found when chatting to people online was that a lot of people love the Heroes of M&M series of fantasy strategy games.

After the release of the 2nd add-on pack for Heroes IV a few years ago the long time creator of the series New World computing was closed down when their publisher 3DO went bankrupt (party due to Heroes IV being a rushed out screwup). But then the might and magic name was bought out by the European company UBISOFT and up until this point Iíve been watching and waiting for their official announcement on a new sequel and it has finally come with a new website and screenshots of Heroes of Might & Magic 5!

http://www.mightandmagicgame.com

Hereís 1 of the screenshots they released. You can see many of the traditional heroes map buildings here with beautiful detail. Oh and Iíll point out that these shots are showing off the engine so Iím sure that when playing the game normally you will still be in the traditional top down view that the previous Heroes games were played in.

Well, looks good so far. We'll see. Heroes of Might & Magic IV was graphically and combat-oriented quite good, but the music and the story wasn't that incredible compared to part 3 or 2. Let's just hope this one will go up again.

It looks like an RTS...

Here are the confirmed features...
-there will be six towns;
-the game will use a 3D engine;
-the game will lean more towards strategy than RPG;
-the system requirements will remain low, and offer some scalability;
-a simultaneous turn system is considered, but only as a means to
speed up the early parts of the game;
-there will be a demo
-demons and the undead might form separated factions again;
-the multiplayer mode will focus on Internet play, but hotseat might be included
-there will be a unique storyline for the single-player campaigns;
-the story style will be the faction switching / linked storyline style;
-stacks, dragons, upgrades, a combat grid and other basic concepts from the previous games will be back;
-a combat-grid resembling the one in H3 will be implemented;
-towns will seem more "alive" than before;
lots of changes/improvements in the combat-phase of the game;
-heroes will probably not participate in combat as in H4, but they'll be
more involved than in H3;
-diplomacy will not be a major key in the game, but creating alliances during missions will be possible;

I don't really know what to say, but I would be inclined (as usual) to say that it's bad news since the game will be in 3D... :not_ok:

HOMM3 is still the best out of the series. Sometimes it would be better to leave it lie.
