Might & Magic: Heroes VI is the sixth installment in the most popular series of turn-based fantasy strategy games. This time game was created by studio Black Hole Games creators of Warhammer: Mark of Chaos.

The epic story begins 400 years before events of Heroes of Might & Magic V. The main role is played by Angels who begin the plot in order to start again a long forgotten war. They seek for help from an Archangel who was a legendary general and was killed long ago now he rises from the dead and seeks vengeance. He starts to uniite denizens of Ashan under his command under the false pretext of preparations for the upcoming invasion of Demons. Only men of Griffin dynasty can stop the Archangel unfortunately, they have their own problems. The oldest daughter, Anastasya, murdered her own father, Duke Slava, and rose from the dead after she was executed for her crimes now she leads the army of Undead looking to expand their territory. Her twin brother, Kiril, sold his soul to the Devil and now he rules Inferno in his name. And heir to the throne, Prince Anton, let Angels fooled him so he leads the heavenly crusade with their blessing.

Just like before, Might & Magic: Heroes VI combines turn-based strategy with cRPG elements. We are exploring huge maps, gathering resources and building amazing cities. We can also develop our hero, recruit armies and face enemies on battlefields. We have also a good deal of freedom in roleplaying, thanks to the new reputation system which strongly influences the game. Worth mentioning is also expanded bestiary filled with many new monsters.

Basics of the gameplay are similar to those known from previous games in the series but developer implemented many changes and improvements. Town screen is simplified (initially there was only small window with static art instead of proper screen) but we can easier judge their level of development by looking on them just in the general view. In addition to this, after conquering a town of other race we can transform it into the one of our type (for example, after we seize Haven with demons we can turn it into Inferno with single click of mouse button to recruit ally forces and gain defence bonuses).

The game has modern 3D graphics and extensive social system which allows us to chat and compete with friends easily.
