Many people loved the Might & Magic series back in the day, especially the 3rd part of the game – Heroes of Might and Magic III. But that was in 1999. Now another part of the game is about to be released and the beta is looking pretty nice.
For those of you who have no idea what kind of game is this it’s a turn based strategy (similar to XCOM series I guess) and like the previous Might & Magic games in the series, players control heroes with magical skills who recruit a variety of forces from strongholds. You have to fight the opponents using your armies and heroes and basically counter the “bad” heroes. It features a campaign (not available in the beta), standalone and multiplayer scenarios.
By capturing more territory and enemy towns, the player can build a larger army which leads to victory. The game is won when one player is left standing and the rest have been defeated. The game uses the good old Unreal Engine 3 which is not a bad move, although, to me, the engine feels really outdated at the moment. But this is not a major problem because the strategy is a key to the gameplay. Performence wise the game is lacking, on my i7 CPU and pretty outdated GeForce 560GTX it can barely play on ultra settings on full HD screen resolution. It’s around 40 FPS which is horrible in my opinion – considering it doesn’t really look that good, but hey it’s time for a GPU upgrade after all these years I guess. GTA V spoiled me because it runs so well…
Here are some screenshots I’m not gonna bore you any longer:

And a very short video of one of the battles that I’ve played:
I don’t really have much time right now because I can’t stop playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt which is amazingly good. To me that’s probably one of the best games of the year, along with Grand Theft Auto V on the PC – also remember to join our GTA V crew guys! :D
