CH Launch Heroes 7 Q&A

Postby Kalah » Aug 19 2014, 22:05

Stop the presses! Put the TV remote down, tell the wife to be quiet and focus your attention to this screen. Celestial Heavens have just put together our first <a target="_blank" href="http://www.celestialheavens.com/838">Q&A with Ubisoft and Limbic</a> about the newly announced <i>Might and Magic: Heroes VII</i>.

Here are some highlights:
<ul><li>The editors are considered a key part of the game; the team are also planning a campaign editor.
<li>Uplay is a must, but H7 will have a one-time online activation, no permanent connection is neccessary.
<li>The battlefield and win conditions will see innovation.
<li>7 resources.
<li>Neutrals are in.
<li>Rob King and Paul Romero are doing the music.</ul>

<b>Go <a href="http://www.celestialheavens.com/838">here</a> to read the whole article!</b>

Having read the article I think there is reason for optimism. If this had just been the UBI team; I would not have given the article much credence. Limbic however has for the most part delivered decent products. Even H-6's only good moments were thanks to them. So I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and hope UBI leaves them alone.

Yeah that's why I asked about requirements, but I guess it's still a bit early.

I think system requirements should be fine, with options to turn on/off hardware demanding bling.
I believe in science and that science can explain everything.

They're doing away with the always-on DRM system, as they did in MMXL. Nice.

I hope they're more creative.

Dragons with dwarfs again; oh joy! :disagree:

Let's be "creative": maybee mobile dragon ale breweries that transform to flame-throwing mechanical dragons on the battlefield ;-)

Disciples has Giants as a top tier in the dwarf faction, which also runs very well with eastern german / czech/austrian/swiss legends.

Yeah, the Thane or a war machine is a good top tier option for them.

I'm still holding out hope that we will see a different number of units per faction!!!!

I'm gonna keep beating this over the head!!! :-D

The art looks GREAT!

It looks to me like perhaps the resurrected phoenix takes on a humanoid form, which is a REALLY cool idea!

there are def. features in the game that I would have loved in the H-IV editor. Also I like the battle ideas. I never played VI, but saw a let's play, and I think the new boss fight etc was nice new development. Might just have to buy this one..

What the f*#@! I can't believe you said "... tell the wife to be quiet...". Even as a joke (?) it was tasteless and perpetuated the myth that girls/women don't play computer games. Well, as the husband of one hell of a female who has been playing fantasy computer games since the days of the Phantasie series (Commodore 64) through the many SSI Gold Box series through Sierra's King's Quest games through all of the Might & Magic games through Heroes I, II, III, IV and V, with many other games I haven't mentioned, I can testify that you don't know what you're talking about. In fact, it was my wife who introduced us to the Heroes series when she bought me Heroes I as a birthday gift. I just don't understand why you had to denigrate women in the first place. Apparently the ones you know don't play computer games and never shut up. I will make a prediction that there will be tons of posts telling me to lighten up. Those will be from all the troglodytes who hold women in low esteem.

Some people get offended awfully easy. The internet is usually not the best place for them.
