It has been a long time coming. Fans of the long running turn-based strategy game Heroes of Might and Magic should be happy to hear that Ubisoft is returning to the world of Ashan, introduced in Heroes of Might and Magic V, in the upcoming prequel Might and Magic Heroes VI.
The story of Heroes VI takes place 400 years before the events of the preceding game and revolves around an archangel general who is revived after having been killed in war. Upon his return he plots to take control of Ashan but is impeded by the Griffin dynasty – the protagonists of the story.
The game has an unspecified release date of March 2011 attached to it. Might and Magic Heroes VI is being developed by Black Hole Entertainment and published by Ubisoft.
