Plot of Dark Messiah and connection with Heroes V

Postby JonahFalcon » Jan 16 2006, 14:58

According to the Jan 2006 issue of Computer Games Magazine, Dark Messiah takes place just after the events of Heroes V.

You play Sareth, a young apprentice sent on a quest to recover a magical artifact that means the difference between a happy world filled with elves and pixies and an evil one crammed with lava-loving demons....fail in your quest, and the Dark Messiah (who will be familiar from a prophecy in Heroes V) will use it to open a gate to the demonic realm...

Yeah, that's been said before. It's kind of cool though. The only strategy-3d-action tie-in I can remeber is the Command and Conquer shooter (Renegade?). They probably didn't bother connecting the storylines though.
I'm on Steam and Xbox Live.

Kinda cheesy but it works. I just hope it has (the story) enough depth for our Might and Magic RPG players. I know I'll enjoy it more if the story is well written and intertwined with combat features.

Well almost 99% of the stories are like that:Succeed and the world will be safe once more,and youll have eternal glory and all the babes you want.Fail and the will become an ugly place.

Will ghost appear on PC?

The point is that Dark Messiah takes place after the Heroes V campaign (and there's reference to the Dark Messiah in Heroes V, too.)

Well they are sharing the same world and the same timeline,so its just natural for them to perplex.Weve seen it in previous MM games as well,so its just natural to have that tradition now as well.

They did say pretty early on that it would take place in the same universe, and it's quite natural for them to intertwine- even if we don't know whether it will be as much as earlier MM has done, or if it will only be as much as MM9 did. As for tradition, well that's something that UBI doesn't care all to much about, so if it wouldn't have made sense for other reasons as well, this could very well not have happened.

Well tradition is whats milking money from old fans,so I think that ubi does care about it,even if not directly.

Except they're rebuilding the history from the ground up. Erathia, etc, will not be involved -- and if it is, it'll be "another universe long ago" sort of thing.
