And there we go. HoMM 6. In 2011. Let's see what it'll bring. And what Blackhole entertainment will bring...
Grah!

Blackhole? Does that mean even more warhammer influences? Doh, will there ever be anything positive in H6?

Oh god, not another crummy demon invasion. But at least the quality of the video is much improved over the Nival produced ones.

Alright, these are the three games produced by Black Hole and their ratings on the Game Rankings aggregate site.

Armies of Exigo 7.1 (based on 35 reviews)
Warhammer: Mark of Chaos 7.4 (based on 37 reviews)
Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March 6.5 (based on 20 reviews)

These are far from stellar, so let's hope they do a better job with turn-based strategy...

That's good. I can't tell on my own, coz i've just finished starcraft2 and any other CG video hurts my eyes pretty much equally

Haha, kudos on that. :D

I like the adventure map a lot, the graphics are appealing and detailed. I'm a bit less enthusiastic about the battle screen, but I suppose the not very cartoonish & colourful creature designs should satisfy HoMM III fans.

I'm happy about the slightly different creature design, looks way more realistic. And I'm an H4 fan :P
The post should be updated with the other leaked screenies and the teaser link removed.

That terrain looks beautiful, So excited, also looks like the lizard race may play a role again! Can't wait to see what the academy race looks like, but their always the last to be shown...

Also, if you look at the screen shot with the artifact, the little image above the adventure map look like a lizard fortress!

Hero is necromancer, so its probably (unbuild?) Necropolis.
Nice graphics, but gameplay is more interesting to me.

Some immediate thoughts on interface:
if the icon above minimap is town, - i would like to see all my towns on adventure screen and especially on inside town screen (like H3,H4 not like H5);
very interesting icons on battle screen under ATB bar and around main control panel... Do they represent creatures abilities, spells (that would be great!)?
does writing "turn1" indicate actual turns (what about ATB then)?
will there be only 4 resources?
and i still hope for bigger battlefield than H5.

This looks awful. Then again, I wasn't expecting a good HoMM game after the HoMM4 debacle, so this isn't a surprise.

Is there anyone here who thinks squares are better than hexagons, in terms of turn based battles?

I do.But i would like to see multisquare creatures (similar to H4).Like normal size (humanoid) creatures 2x2 , small (sprites) 1x1, horses 2x3, big (Titans)3x3, large (dragons) - 3x4 etc.

It's a bit too soon to make any judgement, but from the screens I can't see any innovation. I wouldn't be interested in an Heroes 3-3D v2 game. With "Elemental, war of magic" out this very month, they'll better do something really good.

It's very nice to have cool graphics, but gameplay mechanics are more important.

Oh my.. I wasnt all that taken in by Heroes 5 as I was with H2 and H3. I hope H6 really pulls me in. I miss being involved in the community...
