Heroes Of Might And Magic V



Like the other games in the series, players take control of "heroes" (leaders with magical abilities) who provide their services for a faction, recruiting an army from settlement strongholds, such as castles, out of various forces (humanoid, undead, monsters, and so forth) and then doing battle against roaming armies, enemy heroes and rival factions. The game features a campaign series that covers six factions from Ashan, along with stand-alone and multiplayer scenarios. Unlike the preceding games in the series, which used 2D computer graphics but with some isometric touches, Heroes V was the first to be completely 3D.

A hero can learn a new skill, upgrade an existing one, gain a new ability or create combos of multiple abilities upon gaining a new level or visiting special buildings on the adventure map. There are two sets of skills available to heroes: racial skills and regular skills. A hero can have up to five regular skills and always has the proper racial skill.


The racial skill that a hero learns is dependent on their native faction. All heroes from a faction learn the same racial skill and racial abilities. Each racial skill culminates in an 'ultimate ability' that can only be gained by learning a very specific set of regular skills and abilities. In addition to the three levels of skills that apply to regular skills, the racial skill can reach an ultimate level when a certain artifact is worn by the hero.


The first Heroes V expansion pack, called Hammers of Fate, was released on November 17, 2006 in Europe and November 24, 2006 in North America. It includes a new race, the Dwarves, who have exclusive access to a new kind of magic, known as Rune Magic. Other features include the much-awaited random map generator and the return of the Heroes IV caravans. This expansion pack requires the full version of Heroes of Might and Magic V to play.


The Academy is a town dominated by wizards and magical creatures since its debut in the second game of the series. Not much has changed besides its location, moving away from snowy mountains of the Tower City in Heroes of Might and Magic III to a vibrant desert scene closer to the original Wizard castle, now filled with Mughal dress. Most of its heroes focus on magic, and their army comprises mostly shooters and flyers. The hero for the Academy Campaign is Zehir, the son of the late Arch-mage Cyrus and the new Arch-mage.


Hailing from the underground empire of Ygg-Chall, the dark elves are a group of fallen elves whose society is built around secrecy, plots, and betrayal. They were once part of the Sylvan faction, but became renegades when they made a pact with the mysterious Faceless. They mastered the ability of Irresistible Magic, which made their spells so powerful that even those who had the strongest resistance to magic have little chance to resist. The hero for the dark elf campaign is Raelag, a mysterious and ambitious warlock.


Once a secret cult flourishing within the dark underside of the Empire, the Necropolis is ruled by corrupted wizards who worship a twisted version of the Dragon of Order, seeking to find everlasting peace and beauty in death that has been denied to them in life. They can use the dark magic of Necromancy to re-animate slain enemies and fill their own ranks with shambling corpses. The Hero for the Necropolis campaign is the shrewd and cunning Markal.


The old Rampart faction from HoMM III in spirit, the Sylvan faction is more distinctly Elvish this time around. Their heroes focus on archery, and so do their creatures, who can finish off their enemies without touching them. Their racial skill gives entire armies bonuses when fighting certain enemies they have slain previously. They are the counterpart to the Dungeon. The hero for the Sylvan Campaign is Findan, a diplomat.

However, Shadya then reveals herself to be Biara in disguise, and seizes Isabel before fleeing to Sheogh, where the Demon Sovereign waits. The heroes travel there as well, and in an epic battle, they defeat the Demon Sovereign, who escapes with Biara. With Isabel free, they then return to their respective countries.

The game itself will be beautifully rendered in 3D, another advancement not seen in any other previous Heroes game. It consists of at least 90 different creatures, 14 in each town. A different set of 6 magic schools live up to the name of 'Magic', while the Dynamic Combat System provides a faster option in battles. There are 6 campaigns which, in total, have over 30 missions which further explore the history behind the towns.


Fortunately, there are some new elements in the expansion that aren't dependent on playing the Orcs. For one thing, heroes can now sacrifice their units for experience points. While most of the more thorough Heroes players are bound to find themselves bumping up against the level cap just through exploration and adventuring alone, the option to get a quick boost at the expense of numerous but useless troops (Peasants, anyone?) opens up some interesting strategies in the early part of each level.


What's more significant is that you can use the marketplaces in your cities and those found on the strategic map to sell artifacts that you don't need anymore. It might be a tough call to separate with items that you're actually using, having six pairs of boots and only five heroes presents an easy money making opportunity. The cash you get isn't going to make or break your strategy in the end game, but if you can part with a few artifacts early on, you can definitely boost your recruiting potential. Finally, there are now large groups of matched artifact sets that you can collect for special bonuses. Some, like Death's Embrace, only require you to collect four different items -- a cloak, a ring, a staff and an amulet. Others, like Power of Dragons, involve collecting eight different pieces that all match. You can see which pieces you have and which ones you still need to get by hovering the mouse over any one piece in your inventory. The completed set brings some cool new bonuses but the main benefit to having an entirely matched set of magic items is that you won't be pulling your hair out looking for that last piece. Unfortunately, that's pretty much the point at which we stopped finding our sets.


And after you've explored all that in the Necro campaign, it's finally time to get a little Orc loving. The Orcs themselves play very differently than any of the other factions in the game. For one thing, they don't use magic and rely on powerful melee units to get the job done. Sure, they have Centuar archers and goblin trappers who can strike from a distance, but for the most part, the warriors and Cyclops and Pao Kais will be fighting with their enemies face to face.


The second thing that helps the Orcs deal with more versatile enemies is their profound magic resistance. Available as a general benefit and supplemented by special hero abilities, the Orcs' magic resistance means they won't have to rush the casters in the enemy's back line just to stay alive. It seems like it would create some balancing issues with multiplayer but we're confident that Nival can patch in some tweaks should those issues arise.


Prior to the release, scheduled for 3rd April 2006, there was an open beta. The overall quality was perceived poor, and major fan sites decided to launch the "Save Heroes" movement at saveheroes.org (now also wesavedheroes.org) to persuade Ubisoft with a petition to push back the release to fix all the major bugs first.


While Ubisoft claimed to start a whole new Might and Magic universe without any ties to the previous one (and its science-fiction elements), the game contains lots of references to old stories and heroes. Characters Sandro, Solmyr and Crag Hack are referred to, as are the refugees from Erathia (from Heroes of Might and Magic IV) in a town's description. Not to mention the storyline which begins in a very similar way as the one of Heroes of Might and Magic III (even if it takes a different direction later on). Fans have had mixed feelings about the inclusions of those "easter eggs", often considering it a cheap way by Ubisoft to appeal to the older fans audience.


Looking at this preview incarnation of the game, we find it familiar, halfway between Starcraft and Magic the Gathering, with a turn-based split-level world. Your heroes (accompanied by an army consisting of a certain number of stacked soldiers and various war machines) travel the map collecting minions and resources, and claiming buildings and cities. There's the traditional slightly-awkward mechanic of telling your hero to move or attack, followed by a bash on the space bar to execute your order; it feels like something of a throwback when you don't get an instant response to your diktat. Then you remember it's a turn-based strategy game and all becomes clear; this is designed for multiplayer. 041b061a72
