Might & Magic X : Legacy released!
Following its 23 January release, Might & Magic X : Legacy has received positive reviews, with an average score of 71/100 in Metacritic.com. While the game was suffering from a significant amount of bugs and performance issues, the first post-release patch has largely remedied the situation. This patch does not only bring bugfixes & improved performance, it also adds 3 new dungeons into the game. Feel free to share your thoughts here.
In other news, the recently released Heroes III MOD Horn of the Abyss saw the release of two hotfix patches (versions 1.3.1 and 1.3.2), and with a 1.3.3 patch on the horizon, the future looks bright. Don't hesitate and jump into the strategy & bug report discussions in the renamed Heroes 3.5 - WoG and Beyond forum section :)
Special thanks to Storm-Giant for offering a helping hand with the news items.

Horn of the Abyss Available in English!
For those who are not familiar with the project, Horn of the Abyss is a fan-made add-on for Heroes of might and magic III that extends classical gameplay elements, fixes or adds some of its own. HotA is an attempt to continue the legendary H3 series as close to the original as it could have been done by NWC team, keeping the classical H3 spirit in every tiny detail from code nuances to overall gameplay. It adds adds a new town (Cove / Pirates!), new campaigns, new scenarios and a crazy number of other features and extras.
The English version has been made available since the New Year's eve, alongside a map editor but also some huge improvements and additions. There may be occasional glitches or crashes but it is a pretty solid release as far as I'm concerned, go get it! If you want to find links, information or just say thanks to the HoTA team for all their their hard work, here is the right place :)
I wish you all the best, may this year treat you kindly and deliver you good news.

RPG Codex Might & Magic X: Legacy Preview
I am delighted to present you this promising MMX preview from RPG Codex, based on the press access to Act II of the game. It gives some interesting insights into vital aspects of the game such as difficulty level, character creation, combat, open world, dungeon pacing, character progression and game engine. Since the preview took place, Limbic has made the party movement more fluid and faster and monster movement speed can be adjusted between 100-300%. But you can see for yourselves here.
As expected, the early release has positively influcenced the game and I wish the devs a good release :) MMX will be out on 23 January.

End of Online Support for H6, DoC: Forgotten Wars Released
The development cycle of Heroes 6 has reached its conclusion, with the team moving on to other major Might & Magic projects. This was not unexpected considering the downward development spiral that followed the bankrupcy of its original developers and even Limbic's attempts at patching the game were but a brief flicker in its life. I wish Limbic well in their future endeavours and especially in the upcoming Might & Magic X Legacy.
Speaking of which, the first unofficial patch for Might & Magic X Legacy has been released, introducing a number of updates and bug fixes. Limbic's dedicated blog is the best source of news if you want to keep up to date with the game's development.
Finally, Duel of Champions has released its third expansion! Forgotten Wars is the biggest expansion to date, with 148 new cards, new languages, and a solution for players to get single cards they were missing. It also introduces the Academy faction which seems to have a pretty interesting gameplay if I might add. It's a brave new meta :)

Early MMX Version Access!
Might & Magic X - Legacy is officially pre-released, offering an Early Access, which is available through Uplay, Steam and Buka. Two things to note are that the box edition of Might & Magic X - Legacy is exclusive to Uplay and that Russian fans can get the box edition via Buka only!
You will be able to play Act I (out of four Acts), test four classes (out of twelve) and get a first impression of what MMX looks and feels like on an unpolished level. The Early Access is neither a final, nor a full game and still includes bugs, open polishing tasks and missing features.
The Limbic team is aware that they cannot make everyone happy. There will no doubt be discussions about free movement vs tile-based, 6 character parties, Xeen vs Mandate, etc but it could not be helped, some decisions had to be made.
What they can promise though is, that they follow discussions, read as much as they can and process the feedback. More information on the MMX blog.
Finally, I have opened a new topic for Early Access Discussion so drop by!

Shades of Darkness: Dungeon Creatures, Artifacts, Strategies
Shades of Darkness Expansion is out, and so is the 2.1 patch which fixes many bugs in the base Heroes 6 game. There are some roll-out issues involving patches, compatibility between heroes games bought via different mediums and unlockable content. Some of these issues have been resolved and others are work in progress. The initial reactions to the Dungeon faction are positive. The town is interesting to play and the campaign seems well made.
Our new Heroes 6 info section has been updated and features a detailed Dungeon Creatures page and a list of New Artifact Sets. There are also sortable creature comparison tables which let you compare Dungeon creatures against the other factions: Core, Elite, Champion.
Couple of dedicated threads have been set up on HC to discuss Dungeon Strategy and Dungeon Campaign. If you are looking for info on installing the 2.1 patch or on how to make games purchased through different mediums work together, there are a few helpful threads on the Heroes 6 Forum.
