3DO Heroes 3 Complete vs Ubisoft Exclusive Heroes 3 Complete

Postby Gljivko a.k.a Vortex » Apr 12 2006, 14:01

Anyone knows if there are any differences between old Heroes 3 Complete release from 3DO and the recent one known as Ubisoft Exclusive Heroes 3 Complete? I really need a fast answer because I have to buy Heroes 3 Complete for one person and I couldn't find the content of the Ubisoft release. Is there a printed manual, or the both releases are just the same.
Thanks in advance :proud:

All I know is that the Ubi version of Heroes IV cannot be patched using 3DO patches, but I have no ideea about Heroes III.

Thanks for fast reply, but I think Heroes 3 Complete already has the final patch, but I wish to know if there are any printed manuals included... etc.

Neither of the Complete versions (for PC) should require patching. I think the only difference may be (but i do not know if it exists) compatibility for online multiplayer games. I do not know if Ubi version has any problems with joining 3DO games... Other than this potential issue, I cannot imagine any difference.

Both should have a pdf manual only. At least 3DO has only pdf.
