Amazon.com now includes a page for the first Heroes V expansion, The Hammers of Fate, with a price of $29.99 and a release on November 14. The <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000JSFZ9E?ie=UTF8&tag=celestialheav-21&linkCode=as2&camp=1634&creative=6738&creativeASIN=B000JSFZ9E">Amazon UK store</a><img src="http://www.assoc-amazon.co.uk/e/ir?t=celestialheav-21&l=as2&o=2&a=B000JSFZ9E" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" /> takes preorders for £16.99, but with a release on November 17 only. <a href="http://www.ebgames.com/search.asp?Ntk=TitleKeyword&Ntx=mode%2Bmatchallpartial&Ntt=hammers+of+fate&N=0&find.x=0&find.y=0&find=Search">EBGames</a> seems to confirm the November 14 US release. If you missed the original announcement, the expansion will include much requested features:

<i>"Improved mechanics and gameplay: Thanks to new features such as caravans and a random map generator, players will enjoy unlimited replayability and an even smoother gameplay experience. In addition, the simultaneous turn feature will speed up online games."</i>

On a completely unrelated note, I smile whenever I browse some message board and come across the name "Farmers of Hate".

Did I miss the gone gold announcement? If it is not gold yet they will be hard pressed to release it that soon I think.

Cravans is ok! Will we be able to flag leprechauns and water wheels? Will we be able to buy external creatures from the caravan? Anyone know?

I think Flamers of Hate would be more relevant to message boards. ;)

Smoother gameplay? Well, I never really considered H5 gameplay smooth to begin with, but whatever.

Hurray for caravans! Also I am glad they finally implemented the simultaneous turns, that should make multiplayer much quicker.

Sounds good all around.

Yes, it's supposed, but will not be. ;) Just look at the number of versions of patches. There are patches for DVD-version, CD-version, Collector Edition version, Special Collector Edition Version, double CD Super Special Collector Edition version and duble DVD + extra CD Super Amazing Special Collector Edition version. ;)

Funny, I had emailed UBI's Support (U.S.) and posted their response on the forums where they said the HOF's release date was 10/31/06. Just goes to show ya, the departments of ubi/nival have one big communication problem! I should have known that wasn't the correct date since the companies weren't showing any box cover, new data, etc. yet.. Oh well no big deal for me since I haven't really made up my mind if and when I will buy the expansion. I may hold off until I read some backfeed after it's release....

Once again, I see on the top of the box, it says "Might and Magic" and then "Heroes V". This again makes it sound like an offshoot of Might and Magic; Ubi has got to stop doing that, because people new to the series might get confused about what is Might and Magic versus Heroes of Might and Magic.

I purchased the basic, vanilla CD-ROM version of Heroes V, but for various reasons have not gotten around to installing it yet. It reached the point where I decided I may as well wait until the expansion was released. This was based on the assumption that the expansion would fix most, if not all, of any bugs/problems in the original Heroes V release. I am getting the feeling from the postings that this may not be true. Does anyone know for sure?
