Some new information (with images) (20.Aug)

Postby Eternor » Aug 20 2010, 18:31

From a collection of files on Ubisoft's press site.


PDF files with conceptual information about factions.

These images are from the PDF files below (click on them to view larger versions):

The quotes are only small part of the documents.


Haven

MM_Faction_Haven_ID.pdf - http://www.mediafire.com/?ca3m31vu1bed9q2

Aka: The Knights of the Light
In a nutshell: A feudal Holy Empire, protected by medieval knights and monks with access to “Light” Magic and “Angelic” elite troops.
Inspiration: Medieval Western Europe (for the general atmosphere and design), Imperial Rome (for the military organization and “Pax Romana” concept), Knights Templar (for the sense of religious mission), Victorian England (for the puritanical nature and strict class division).


Inferno

MM_Faction_Inferno_ID.pdf - http://www.mediafire.com/?twc3b2bdjlhioqo

Aka: The Demons, The Lords of Chaos
In a nutshell: Demons are embodiments of Chaos. They believe that the only meaningful moral value is individual freedom, and they feel no need to justify their actions. They kill because they can, or they want to.
That's why they are viewed as "Evil" and dangerous, and why the other factions of Ashan prefer them to be locked up in their prison-realm, Sheogh, that Sar-Elam created for them. However, there are individuals, among these nations, who are seduced by this absolute notion of Free Will above all, and end up converted to demon worship.



Necropolis

MM_Faction_Necropolis_ID.pdf - http://www.mediafire.com/?1gpyqn7q0xx4tg8


Aka: The Necromancers, the Undead
In a nutshell: Necromancers began as a splinter sect of the Wizards, and grew into a powerful nation. They worship the "Death" aspect of Asha. Their interpretation of the Goddess's darkest aspect is fanatical, emphasizing death alone and exalting the state of un-life to which all Necromancers aspire. Necromancers study death-magic in order to become eternal, but on their way to un-life, they learn how to control the spirits of the deceased (ghosts) or how to raise the dead from their graves (skeletons).



Also, the files included concept art (already released), that clarified the potential names of the units displayed.

Haven:
Sentinel - Praetorian

Inferno:
Juggernaut - Juggernaut Ravager

Necropolis:
Vampire Knight - Vampire Lord
Lich - Arch Lich

Yay for randomly changing creatures names so you can say they're new...

Juggernaut Ravager, seriously...

Nice find though.

Could those be uploaded to a more user friendly site, perhaps? Or at least all 3 of them in a zip file.

It seems they are keeping the sensible faction division; none of that demons-and-undead-in-the-same-castle nonsense.

Considering that they kept Ashan undead and demons in the same town would be impossible lore-wise...

There is some new info about battlefield and wider skill tree is mentioned:
http://www.hookedgamers.com/pc/might__magic_heroes_vi/preview/article-734.html
If battlefield is indeed bigger tan in H5 (even if not always) that's a great news to me.

Nah, that would be too much to ask... they probably just chose the name from a hat.

The Paladin design is AWESAUMESAUCE.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

What cruel and sadistic god runs this universe? I hoped for the crusader/paladin to return in glory (like in ye olde HOMM2 days).
Oh cruel fate!


No..seriously..WHYYYYY?

There probably will be some sort of paladin hero, though, won't there? Not necessarily the Crusader of H4, but since the H6 Haven faction seems to be a pure and angelic goody-two-shoes knight faction, we're likely to see both some forms of paladin-like might and magic creatures. H5 had Inquisitors and Paladins. H6 will probably have some of the same.

I HATED H5 Paladins. Paladins don't belong on a horse with a lance. That's for regular knights/Champions.

Paladins belong ON FOOT with ZWEIHANDERS.

So, anyone else notice all the references to Wizards in the Necro pdf?! They even compare the Ghost role as a fast attacker to the Djinn... sounds to me like they at least have some sort of creature line up for Academy... maybe one even implemented in-game.

At least in Heroes they do.
