Here’s a Might & Magic two-news-stories-for-one for you. Below we have the latest trailer for Might IV Heroes Of & Magic or whatever it’s called this time. But then there’s a surprise – the formerly console-only Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes is now making its way to PC next month. There are details about that below as well.
Originally a DS game in 2009, Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes eventually made its way to 360 and PS3 earlier this year. Four months on and the RPG reaches the PC, but with a slew of improvements. I think.
Ubisoft describes it thus,
“Might and Magic Clash of Heroes takes place 40 years before the Heroes V saga. Scattered across five different regions of Ashan, 5 young heroes must travel their own dangerous paths to grow in strength, unravel a demonic plot, and ultimately save the world from Chaos.”
For PC, says Ubisoft, the game is getting HD graphics, online multiplayer, and “exclusive items to unlock as well as a 1 versus 1 offline hot seat mode”. Then there’s a pre-order offer via the UbiStore that will see early adopters getting the first DLC free, which gives you new bosses to fight against.
The issue is, the console release was HD too, back in April, so it makes the claim that the PC version is improved by such a thing a little odd. Not sure what’s happening there. Anyhoo. The other good news is it appears it won’t be using Ubi’s despicable ‘always on’ DRM, rather just a single activation. I can tell that from this pack shot:
And, as promised, there’s the Gamescom trailer for VI & Might: Magic Heroes Of, right here:
