News about Dark Messiah multiplayer mode were posted on the <a href="http://www.mightandmagic.com">official Might and Magic portal</a>. The news focused on the various classes that will be available in multiplayer mode : warrior, assassin, mage, priest and archer.

For the moment, the news is only available on the <a href="http://www.mightandmagic.com/fr/">french</a> and <a href="http://www.mightandmagic.com/de/">german</a> portals.

Here is a quick translation of the classes' description :

<i><b>Assassin :</b> he has skills in both melee and stealth, but his physical strength is weak. He hides in the shadows to strike quickly. He's good with poison, resistance, traps, invisibility and silent moves.

<b>Warrior :</b> A true force of nature. Strong in melee combat, he rushes on his foes, protected by his endurance and shield. His skills : he strikes hard, runs fast and resists well.

<b>Priest :</b> Weak physical condition. She masters defense and ranged attacks. She's here to help her team, by sensing the presence of assassins and casting healing spells.

<b>Mage :</b> Weak physical condition. He has strong ranged attacks and his spells can strike a whole group of enemies. Skills : by gaining experience he improves his existing spells and learn new ones, and gain a better resistance.

<b>Archer :</b> Weak physical condition. He can shoot from afar with deadly precision. Can deal massive damage to a single target. Skills : quick reloading, zoom, multiple shoot.</i>

Did they mention anything about class promotion? Like from Archer to Sniper? Or Mage to Archmage?

Not on the french site. There were more info on the german site though, apparently an interview about the MP mode. They say (if Babelfish understood correctly...) "The classes develop in the course of the play". Now what is it supposed to mean exactly...

These look nice I guess. The problem is though, the only true tanker here is the warrior, all the others are not fit for frontline combat. Maybe that will change in the future.

summary, and rough translation.

'up to 32 players', 'teamplay'.
'compare with battlefield 1942 (and so many other games)'
'class can be improved during online-campaign, in single-player campaign you only play Sareth. It wouldn't make any sense to bring him into the multiplayer-game'.
'we're not going to bring something original, new, refreshing, but we're sticking to the traditional multiplayer modes. On the other hand, we will take advantage of the possibilities of the fantasy-genre in 'evolution-mode'. In this mode, your character plays one of many classes, like BF 42, and he'll develop over the course of ze game.'

'dynamic campaign means that the outcome of one round has an influence on the next round. The result has an influence on the nature of the next map, and the items, like (I'm no german native speaker), which you could take with
I have probably offended you in this post. if you take it too harshly, it's your own responsability. I, for my part, never intended to.

Both archer and assassin should have medium physical condition, since they arent spellcasters, neither tanks...
