Topic: Is development for HoMM 6 finished?
Replies: 22

The lack of the RMG and the fact that the Steam demo would not even start up on either of my last 2 reasonably powerful PCs, combined with the general apathy of the members of this site, made this the first HOMM game I haven't bought and played. I actually liked a lot of the art direction on VI, and...

The Snake

Of course he's Necropolis. There's skulls on his weapon, he's got the Lich hooks on his back, and he's black and green.

Proportionately, it's no larger than the biggest H3 mountain tiles, and, visually, it's much more interesting.

Also, I'd like it explained to me how we're going to get better utilisation of resources since wood and stone (and crystal to a degree) are going to be flaming useless once the town is built. Was it ever any different? Who knows what else will use them - I wouldn't be surprised to see those turn up...

Helmet of Legend

Or maybe it's how beneficial offensive spells cast on him are? Or, if it also applies to Special Abilities, maybe abilities can be improved through Hero stats that affect Magic Power? That would be pretty cool.

We already know it's Might Power, Might Defense, Magic Power and Magic Defense, right? Look at the Marksman image I linked below.

Except, of course, that's it's sheer speculation that there was some sort of commandment from the Execs that there be more female units.

+18 might not really be that big - the last time we saw creature stats, the Marksman was 19 Attack, 33 Defense: http://static9.cdn.ubi.com/en-GB/images/MMH6_S_011_BAT_NECRO_V02tcm2110916.jpg Also, man does the crop of this screenshot suck - all the awesome info is in the corners of the original - Wo...

What do you think it's going to look like, then, that's not essentially like this?

you guys are ridiculous - it's a mostly-top-down zoomed-out screenshot, how is this not, essentially, what the play camera is going to look like?

I mean, unless this is an utter, total fabrication, along with multiple other screens released, one can but assume that the game will look pretty much like we've been shown.

It's obviously taller than any standard screen shot - is anybody still playing on anything that's not 16:9? - but I'm talking about plane height variation in gameplay and implied depth in art design - if there's another game, certainly a TBS game, that does it like this, I haven't seen it.

hellegennes, - you missed my point. Obviously, in that, and other photos (I'm thinking of the one with the teleporter on top of the isoalted cliff peak in the ocean), there are Heroes on different planes. Even if it turns out not to be functional, that guy on the bridge is higher than the undergroun...

I'd say it's groundbreaking in terms of depth - I've never seen a game like this with so much verticality. It gives it a very different feel from the other Heroes games, certainly. I don't see any evidence of post-processing here - there's some clear (and easily removed) aliasing on the dragon's tee...

Awesome. I assume you will only see the distant city during cinematic combat shots, but, like with the rest of the game design, the depth it adds is fantastic.
