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!

Since its reveal, the Legacy blog has made some updates on Characters, Classes, Portrait Expressions, what makes the game Fun and of course the first Introductions on the Team behind the Production. A warm welcome to Anna, Lore and Marcus!
There is also an interview of Julien Pirou, aka Marzhin, the game's Creative Designer & Writer.
What do you think of the blog and more importantly, the game so far? Feel free to join the discussion and share your thoughts here.
Meanwhile I am delighted to announce the first No Rare Tournament for Duel of Champions, hosted by Dave_Jame! Do you like DoC? Then join for some friendly tournament fun :) Just make a post to let us know you are in, your hero of choice and don't forget, no rare or epic cards allowed!

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.

AOH Heroes 6 Wiki & Upcoming Heroes 6 Expansion
Age of Heroes now has its Heroes 6 section, and it is a wiki that runs on the same software as Wikipedia. Any member of Heroes Comunity (with at least 5 posts on the forums) can log into the wiki with their HC account to edit/create pages. The vision is to create a community information resource that is created and maintained by the community. Big thanks goes out to Miru, whose work and perseverance made this project possible.
The initial content is faction info, a list of artifacts and most notably the sortable creature pages which let you compare creatures by specific stats across tiers and factions. The wiki will be expanded over time, and input is welcome from all Heroes Community members. Let's see if we can make a Wikipedia for Heroes 6. Feel free to dive in. Feedback is welcome on HC.
Heroes 6: Shades of Darkness expansion pack is set to release on the 2nd of May.
This will be a stand-alone expansion pack that features a new faction - Dungeon - with its full line-up of creatures and heroes. There will be two new campaigns, and also additional artifacts, abilities and achievements. This is a proper expansion pack as opposed to the two earlier content packs.
You can Pre-Order Shades of Darkness Here ($29.99) to download it the minute it comes out and get the pre-order goodies (Angel of Death Pack and the Dynasty armory Pack).

AOH Q&A, new Duel Map Tourney and more!
On December some of you had voiced questions on Shades of Darkness and the future of the series. I am delighted to present you with your Q&A with Erwan's clarification on faction magic as a bonus :)
You may also be interested in a Duel of Champions interview and a Q&A on Heroes Online.
The first season of the Duel Map Tourney is coming to a close with one last, special round - the Tears&Blood Cup! If you are interested in joining drop by and introduce yourself :)
Finally there are two great Heroes III mods that deserve some mention:
The Horn of the Abyss (HotA) 1.2 is out, coming with a working RMG, the introduction of bad luck, new content such as new adventure locations and victory conditions and new maps. Sadly the English version is not yet ready, stay tuned!
There is also the beta release of The Succession Wars Mod. It converts Heroes III graphics into Heroes II ones, adds new creatures to the original HII factions (since it's a 7-tier system) and of course new heroes and specializations.
Tomorrow there will be an official announcement on Shades of Darkness, keep an eye out.
