Ubi took up the task to continue the Heroes of Might and Magic series after that other company went bankrupt. 3DO or whatever it was. Heroes II and III are two of my favourite games, but the IV really blew IMO. I hope they don't screw this game up.
Screenshots and forum:
I have been waiting for years for homm 5!
It can't be any worse than homm 4, which was at least playable and had some enjoyable parts to it.
Did you ever play the game that started the whole series? 'King's Bounty'?
That was a groundbreaking game and extremely fun! I forget if it was sega genesis or nintendo. But it was 3DO's first attempt at what was to become a whole new genre that it pioneered.
I hope they revitalize the Might and Magic series also which has really turned to crap lately.
Thanks for the heads up on this one WickedRock!
I'm not ancient enough to have even seen that game I haven't even played much of the first Heroes game.
It looks like they dropped the 2D map like they had in all the other games, wonder how that will work out.
yeah i have heroes 3 it's cool ive played on heroes 4 but personaly i prefer heroes 3
I FEAR NOTHING!
DEATH IS JUST ANOTHER TASK!
WOW! Judging from the screenshots that game is going to be amazing! I think the 3d map is a great idea. It looks like the game will work in pretty much the same way, only with better graphics. The heroes are looking ****ing awesome. Can't wait to buy it.
I liked heroes 3 better than heroes 4 too, but I hope heroes 5 will keep some of the improvements from heroes 4. Heroes that can fight, and move in the same group is a must!
Oh, and I hope we'll see the return of the random button in the map editor. I like using the random button to make a map, that I modify manually afterwards.
What do you want to see in heroes 5?
Ave Dominus Nox!
I liked homm4 for the ability to finally integrate heroes in combat, but overall I still prefer homm3. I have always wanted homm to be more RPG-like in the homm way, I really think that the game have potential in that direction, eventhough the MaM-series sucks. I just hope that homm5 offers more than just shiny 3D graphics.. I donÂ´t really care much about graphics.
I'd love to see really cool battle animations when the individual stacks engage. Maybe some blood, limbs and creature/human heads flying off! Also the option to turn off the animations if you don't want to see them or are playing multiplayer and want to speed the game up.Originally Posted by Absoluthor
Maybe some spell effects that affect the surrounding terrain, like if a unit is standing near some trees and a fireball goes off on it or an ice storm, then the trees get burnt to match sticks and the ground around them scortched; or end up snow covered with icicles hanging off and snow covered ground.
Also some weather effects during combat like on hot sunny days fireballs get bonus's and ice storms have less effect, and fireballs having less effect in the rain, but ice storms and lightning getting bonus's.
