Formally Biweekly News - 23 March 18'

Postby {CH}ArticleBot » Mar 22 2018, 23:13

There seems to be some resentment with current HoTA release 1.5.3 - as they removed some of random elements from the game. Which can be cool for MP but evidently it's upsetting for SP. This is, they changed Resistance. And it can now even prevent enemy hero from summoning.  You can find the release here, compared to HoTA 1.5.2 this is a mainly bug fix release. Horn of the Abyss is Heroes III. fan AddOn.

Elemental Guardians - mobile game from Ubisoft, entered offical Beta testing phase. Anyone can register. Official release date is at May 31. It was a year ago when we first informed about it, so it undertake a long journey in the shadow of public eyes, the game is available for both platforms. Check all the latest news on their twitter.

Maybe that there is Kings Bounty II. on the horizont, 1C Company announced 4 new titles to be revealed on PAX EAST 2018, which runs April 5-8. PAX twitter again.

Ubisoft joined forces with Tencent and fend off the hostile take over by Vivendi. Tencent, that is China. A big player here. Official press release from Ubi follows here

We have a new contributor Karmakeld, welcome him aboard! Three times hooray!!! Or four, as he's Heroes IV map maker. :D

If Ubisoft joined forces with Tencent, that means they have a strong partner. And that means they will continue to survive and produce more low quality garbage... instead of going bankrupt so that interested members of the community can pick up the Heroes franchise for cheap and make something better.

OK, so apparently no new King's Bounty, and no happy news about Might&Magic either. Disappointed 'bout that. :( :devious: :wall: :rip:

Kinda, yes. 1C revealed some interesting games but none of them is King's Bounty. I guess that we must cope without Amelie.

Just for info, they are here:
Ancestors Legacy (PC, XB1, X1X, launch 2018)
A squad-based RTS game where Vikings, Saxons, and other nations try to storm medieval Europe in an extensive series of tactical campaigns. Ancestors Legacy will be shown on PC and X1X, with 4K gameplay on X1X.

Re-Legion (PC, launch 2018)
The upcoming cyberpunk tactical strategy game will provide a unique RTS experience with single player and multiplayer modes. Played from a classic isometric, top-down view, the game takes players to the year 2083, where cults start to emerge as people seek their real purpose in a world dominated by huge corporations and advanced technology.

Deep Sky Derelicts (PC, currently in Early Access, launch 2018)
An award-winning original combination of turn-based strategy and RPG game, in a retro sci-fi setting enriched with tactical card combat and popular roguelike elements.

Haimrik (PC, XB1, PS4, launch 2018)
A unique puzzle-based action-adventure title where medieval scribe Haimrik takes on warriors, sorcerers, and dragons using words that come to life. It’s as original—and as fun—as it sounds!
