News


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?

Hey guys! 

First things first, I am extremely honored to be a part of the mod team here at Celestial Heavens. For over 10 years, I've been on and off this forum. Most of you will recognize me as the kid who made a ton of promises that never came true, but also as the creator of the Masters of Sighisoara-series of campaigns for Heroes of Might and Magic III: SoD (Oh, and HoTA now that we are playtesting our remake of the first campaign for this incredible unofficial expansion). Masters of Sighisoara is also on facebook, find us here!

I just wanted to let you all know that I have fired up the Facebook of Celestial Heavens (click to see the page) and it's up and running, active as never before. There are a ton of things that will be seen here. It's connected with RSS to the news section of the page. But will also feature forum posts, PoTD posts and simply enough "All things Might and Magic". 

I would be more than happy to take suggestions of things you want me to post and of course, that you give this page a thumbs up and that you follow us on Facebook (as well as here, of course). 

We are currently trying to find a new profile picture for facebook too, but here is our current one!

With Best Regards, 
HeroofPunk

King's Bounty 2 Announced

1C Entertainment brings back King's Bounty. Whereas core part remains, this is not true for our heroes or heoriness. Much more things changed.

Fighting on polygons, in fresh new land of Antara, is in. Creating,  upgrading and fine tunning your squads is all anew.

Add dynamically generated battlefields, where you are supposed to use random terrain (obstacles) to your advantage. (How many times I heard that?)  And allll of that will be served in semi-realistic 3D.

Take a look at this cinematic trailer:

If you are eager to see it in action, and have a way around Cologne to Gamescon, head to Hall 10.1 at 20.–24.08.2019.

King's Bounty 2 is due out in 2020.

Minimal requirements are just preliminary. There they are:

  • Windows 64bits
  • Quad-core processor with minimu frequencey 2.5GHz
  • nVidia Geforce 470GTX or Radeon 6870HD
    (which could translate to GTX 1050 or AMD RX 570).

Engine is UE4.

Game will be ready for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Creature Quest Game Quiz

139 CraneStudent PortraitFirst a little housekeeping, some time ago I announced at forums Creature Quest Quiz, which is for everyone to peek in but really, only players will be knowing. Although I must say, that this Mobile Collectible RPG is not having too strong RPG elements, there's some funny lore behind and game mechanic, on which was the quiz targeted.

And there are the officially announced answers.

If you are curious sort of a person, there's Creature Quest TAG link

And we have also our own Guild, which is still hungry for a new souls.

by maltz

h7 pathfindingAfter Kalah completed our walkthrougs for MM:H7, we were long in absence of covering the only Add-On, which Ubisoft relased and after which slowly stopped active support for the game, Trial by Fire.

And there step in maltz with his Heroes 7 Walkthrough and Strategy Guide. Don't miss it, if you still care about the game. This is a recommended reading, breeze and brillant. Thank you maltz!

I shall not forget cjlee's summary and walkthrough in the forum. All of these walkthroughs were added to our Walkthroughs page.

It's with my great pleasure and delight to announce that HeroOfPunk is becoming Celestial Heavens Staff. You surely know him as author of Masters of Sighisoara epos, along with Yurian Stonebow. Three time hooray for Max!

This should also prevents appearance of any Punk Police squad in the future! :D

Marzhin (Julien Pirou), one of ours most prolific Heroes VI - VII creators, announced that he's leaving Ubisoft. After ten years, his heart is moving on a new route. It seems that year 2019 is challenging with changes and that's what's much needed.

Marzhin we wish you lots of luck, everywhere where you walk in. ;)

We will remain here, for a bit longer now. If any of new announced games bear any resemblance to Heores of Might and Magic, it's Songs of Contest.

What is served on the plate?
It may looks like one of the oldies but it's not. The game is centered about day gameplay, bulding and fighting and all of that it's serving in nicely fitting 8bits coat.

Where superior graphic is going aside, strategy and stories have a waste space to spring on. As the game is currently in alpha testing stage, you can subscribe for news and possible testing at www.songsofconquest.com and verify yourself.

The known info so far:
On E3 2019 they released a game trailer, there's also available interview with game developer. They have also a nice note on the blog, presenting happy coop between them as dev and their publisher.

Level editor and soundtrack are planned to be part of the game. Public release date shall be in late 2020. The game is announced as a classic turn based adventure strategy. Starting with hotseat and later with full mp. Developer is a small Sweden studio Lavapotion, with industry veteran members, this will be their first title. ;)

The Essence with you!

E3 2019 ongoing now, June 11–13, in Los Angeles Convention Center

Ubisoft already have its press conference and announced new subscription service Uplay Plus. This sounds interesting as currently they are offering free trial for first half month and then you can subscribe for $14.99.
Similar model to HB Go or Amazon Prime or Humble Bundle Monthly :)

“The service will launch on September 3, but players who sign up between now and August 15 will be able to get free access to Uplay Plus from September 3 through September 30,” Ubisoft says.

Additionally they have E3 sale, with 75% discounts, Might & Magic is in, though it looks that Heroes III Complete for PC/ RoE for Android are missing. You can check it here.

No, there wasn't any Might & Magic related announcement and they had already press conference today.

But at our forums, there's call for Fate of Heroes. For these who would like to influence Ubisoft, to continue with our franchise. Check and register within Discord, and ideally make your personal appearance at E3 and ask them!

This may suprise them enough, to trigger a mental note about Might & Magic Baby!*

Dear Readers,
as you probably noticed, we had got a new advert to support running our site. Though sci-fi there still remain a little ties to our favourite games. Which is why we decide to give it a go.

p1SpaceWars is a new turn-based strategy game developed by Vesuvius  — Who ran the Heroes Tournament of Honor for Homm2 through Homm6 — and is in beta on Steam.  He was inspired by Heroes of Might and Magic as well as the Kingdoms MMO and Homeworld TBS, to create his own hex-based tactical game but in a science fiction universe.  It has recently opened up for early access beta, and he wanted to have the Homm community experience it.

Celestial Heavens community members who join up can get $10 in credits for in-game purchases, though the game is free to play, and one can achieve top level without paying.

Come try it out, the game has no publisher yet, so it is only known through word of mouth.

You are all welcome!
