If you are like me, then last chapter for you was "Chapter 18: Deal with the Devil". And you are saying, what else now?

 

Because, that was end of the story. Temporarily. World froze.

 

Of course, you can hide in the Online Lobby to arrange match with other players, using several modes. — For these reading about EoC first time. This match is just a duel - one battle or many. Solely army vs army. Not any MP fight over map or even campaign. — Cannot complain, if you like that, there are many choices.

 

But this is for what we were waiting, today announcement by CM-Evelyn:
(excerpt, rather jump to the end for promise)

 

Dear Lords,

Might & Magic Heroes: Era of Chaos will be undergoing maintenance on February 18 at UTC 6:00 - 8:00.

1. New heroes coming:

Tower - Draco
Inferno - Zydar

With more heroes coming to help, choose a leader, and take your army to conquer the world!

2. Added awakening missions for the following units:

Firebird, Pikeman, Skeleton, Black Knight,the strength of the units will be greatly improved after awakening!

3. Updated Heroes’ Lore: The Duke of Gold – A Biography of Crag Hack.

4. New magic in Magic Guild: Chaos.

5. Conflux Plane now opens to level 20.

6. Account level caps open to level 90.

Other improvements:

1. Added localization support for Italian.
2. Added Conflux Plane in the guidebook.
3. In the chat channel, click the translate button next to the text to translate messages into the currently set game language.

...

"Meanwhile, we are also speeding up on updating new versions of game. New gameplay and chapters will be added gradually in recent updates. Thanks again for your understanding!"

And there are some screenies how it will work:

2 17Community Unit Awakening 01 2 17Community Unit Awakening 02 2 17Community Unit Awakening 03 2 17Community Unit Awakening 04

In other words, it will work very slowly. Base number of tokens for 6 stars units is 400, then you can activate potential, probably for the same number. And seeing two spots, for hiring means that you can got 8 pieces daily, or 16 if you will pay additional 100D.

If the final number of soul tokens will be 900, then in normal speed - 8 tokens per day - it will take exactly 225 days.

Information about new Kings Bounty II. are finally, albeit slowly, pouring to the public. Period of silence after GamesCom in Cologne seems to be over.

At this moment there are planned three main heroes classes, for which you will be able to play. Traditionally they will be Knight, Paladin and Mage, thought the names are not final.

Knight hero will be Aivar, and there's already short introduction at the Steam page.

Developer 1C-SoftClub is very ambitious about KB II. It's one of the biggest projects And they assembled a completely new team of 65 people, when not counting in also all of the outsourced staff. To bring you RPG with realistic graphic, with many quests and challenging combat. It shall be big.

They will focus on:
  • RPG part (with different lines, led by your decisions and character, many side quests)
  • Combat (limited units stacking, affinity, forcing you to combine different units which can work together, elevated terrain to give you an advantage)
  • Cut scenes - they have a special team for it. Show more, talk less is their motto. The game should be almost in cinematics quality.
  • And overall realistic graphic in UE4.

The game was released and it's available for download. Supported platforms are Android, iOS and PC(via UPlay). If you are curious for autobattler let go for it.

Need to say, that we here, are not. There were much better attempts from Ubisoft in the past, MM:Showdown comes to mind, which was at least arty.

Autobattler means that you get your units ready, put them in formation and rest is handled by AI. It's perfectly fair, from some viewpoint.

But it doesn't sound like a fun. It's more just like playing Dice, pretending that these are Chess with microtransactions.

MM Heroes: Era of Chaos were released worldwide! If you pre-registered I can only guess that you will receive your "pirate Catherine skin and Legendary pack" when connecting the game with your Ubisoft profile. Which needs to be the same like your pre-registration e-mail.

Let us know, if you play the game ;)

 

MM Elemental GuardiansMM: Elemental Guardian - a few days ago received series of updates. Improving graphics, stability and running on phones with 1GB of RAM.

The Last one bring new monsters and spell, being called: "Dark and Light Update". In April Dev Sergi released roadmap, you can check it here. Some of its planned futures were however already delayed, like "Infinite Turns Strategy". As there would be too much changes at once.

Heroes of Might and Magic III HD Mod here just breathed some new life into my personal favorite installment of the Heroes of Might and Magic series. 

The Change log looks like this:
5.0 RC61 -> 5.0 RC63 (11/18/2019)

[+] New graphics modes: (stretchable) 16-bit OpenGL and (stretchable) 32-bit OpenGL by Verok use GPU for scaling, filtering and rendering , unlike other modes which use CPU.
[+] 32-bit True graphics modes have become even more True for SoD and for the future HotA
[+] System cursors which was used in 32-bit True (stretchable) GDI mode is now used in all modes.

 This option is highly recommended for use.

[+] All graphic modes and some filters renamed , the functionality has not changed
[+] Changed the option code Sys.CPU.ReduceUsage (= 1 and = 2) Now in the message loop instead of "Sleep (1ms or maybe more)" the game tries to do "Sleep (about 0.5 ms, no more)". Changes apply only to Windows.

 As usual, it is recommended to use Sys.CPU.ReduceUsage = 2.

[-] Settings are no longer reset after update.
[+] Minor changes and fixes.

So, why the excitement? Well, take a look at the 32-bit true GDI mode and the OpenGL mode. I just launched up Heroes III using Verok's OpenGL and the difference is amazing. The entire feeling of the graphics make it feel new and fresh. Details feel more crisp but the main thing is without a doubt the on map animations. 

Here's the regular version:

And here's the updated version:

While it truly may not look like much at first, there are some distinct changes that, in my opinion, makes a whole lot of difference! 

What are your thoughts on the latest update?

Ubisoft, just opened their pre-registration for their all-new mobile game Might and Magic Heroes: Era of Chaos which is currently playable in China, New Zealand and the Philippenes. Some game-play videos have emerged on YouTube but Ubisoft themselves claim, that this is a spiritual successor of Heroes of Might and Magic III. Without having been able to test the game myself (yet), we can see some old Heroes such as Gelu, Crag Hack and Queen Catherine available in game. 

Heroes of Might and Magic III, but for mobile

 

Also gathered from the information given by Ubisoft, we can tell that this is an anime-inspired game, drawing some thoughts towards the Clash of Heroes release for mobile as well. 

While the graphics are not very promising, there is great potential in the game-play. Do you think the gameplay will make up for the graphics? Are you on-board with the direction Ubisoft it taking with the franchise? Let us know in the comments! 

Might and Magic Heroes: Era of Chaos

 

 

 

There seems to be a good system with clans, battle systems, chapters of a campaign amongst other things. This will be definitively a download for me. The Ultimate Question for me is, can we survive the anime? 

 

There is definitively no doubt that we will report on this, as soon as we get a hands on review!

CNET reports that Internet Archive have released 2500 titles from the 1990s. Playing on emulators, these games now work on new computers so that old-timers can relive their childhoods.

In the roster, we find such gems as Jones in the fast lane, The secret of Monkey Island, Alone in the dark, Championship manager 2 and many more! So why not take a trip down memory lane, search through the archives and find one of those games that you loved playing as a kid?

Which game was your 1990s favourite?
