The boxshot of Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements for the Xbox 360, showing for the first time the face of Sareth. The game hits the shelves on January 10.

Nice box :). Still haven't play the game,it seems nice in the trailers, but likely has little to do with the MM series...

Fitting, my guess about how he looks was pretty close :) Wonder if it will be revealed which ending is 'canonical'.
I, for one, am dying to find out what colour they paint Michael's toenails.

Not too bad at all I suppose!

Not how I imagined Sareth, I have to say. I reckon he looks much younger and far more innocent for most of the game. Only towards the end would some sort of darker mark start developing, but more as an overlay.

Looks like the guy had a run-in with a mini-Wolverine. Meh, it's a nice box.

Notice the tiny spoiler in the thread title (on the forum side), but everyone knows that by now I guess.

Nice, but am I the only one getting a POP deja vu?

And I agree with innokenti that Sareth is not really how I imagined him.

Anyone else find it odd that while his eye appears to have taken enough damage from those scratches to be useless, the eyebrow above it is perfectly intact?



And for some reason I want to say he looks like Ghengis Khan.

I agree with innokenti. How I would have done it is to have the central figure replacing the Demon, and a more innocent one in the center.

Higher resolution image of Sareths face from the cover:http://darkmessiahelements.uk.ubi.com/i ... 024-01.jpg

Actually, this is not the first time Sareths face is shown, for example:

Oh, I never saw that image before. That was from the PC version right?

Me neither. As for the PotD pic I imagined his face close to that, just not scarred with facial hair and a little younger.

Well, that's a not-too-bad depiction of Sareth actually. He's got that slight tinge of innocence on his face that just turns the image into the right one.

He's not the (Dark) Messiah, he's a very naughty boy! ;-)
