Heroes of Might and Magic 4 (IV): The Gathering Storm Expansion

Heroes of Might and Magic IV: The Gathering Storm Overview

The first expansion pack for Heroes of Might and Magic IV, The Gathering Storm, was made available on the 24th of September, 2002. The main gameplay mechanics of the original game remained, as did the interfaces and graphics style. The Gathering Storm was a smaller expansion when compared to it's Heroes III counterparts, primarily due to the despondent state of the producer, 3D0. Under the circumstances, a sizeable amount of new content was added, predominantly in the Campaigns.

In the new Campaigns, Hexis is the crazed Wizard and mutual enemy of your chosen hero. Hexis controls the realms of Death and Nature, and through this power has put the lands of Devonshire and Lodwar in jeopardy. As his power grows, so does the chaos enshrouding the kingdom - floods, earthquakes and other natural disasters become prevalent, and so the story of five heroes emerges, and a plan to stop and reverse the damage already done to their land.
