Ubisoft have announced a contest where you can win tickets to a fan day along with "a great selection of various gaming magazines and websites from different countries to present the game progress and unveil some new exciting information" on Friday, March 13th near Paris (France).

How to participate:
Basically, you have to participate in the comments section on the official blog site and prove that you're a big Heroes fan. As they say - "share in the comments section why you think you are the hardest Heroes fan, share pictures, videos or anything that could support this statement! Originality will be rewarded and even if you are not selected in the end, your contribution will be rewarded through this website. ".
Deadline: Feb. 25th 00:00 CET.

Of course, this is a total rip-off of our own contest held back in December and one we held back in 2011, but as it goes through the official site there will probably be more participants, meaning a smaller chance to win, meaning that the CH contests are the best.

More info here.

Dear Heroes,

The Heroes VII DevTeam has published some information about the game since the beginning of march.
First of all, the 8th part of Tales of the Ten Years War was released. With this story, players had more information about the election of Seamus na Feidh, Duke of Stag, as the Emperor. After seven years of war, people trust him to put an end to the conflicts... It was not very efficient...
Secondly, developers gave a bunch of screenshots. You can find some of them directly in our gallery.
Finally, a part of the community was complaining about the art direction of Necro faction, they gave us Might Heroes's concept and some of their abilities. Players are quite satisfied of modifications !

The devs have done some spring cleaning and by chance discovered an old piece of music from the 3DO days.

Pop over here to hear the track on Soundcloud.

In case you're wondering where is the information about the press event held in Paris this weekend, you may have to wait a while.

I refer you to the small print of the contest Ubisoft held earlier: (...) no information is shared before embargo time (end of March, exact date to be confirmed).

There is still no exact date released, so I suppose soon™ is the best we can do so far.

Dear Heroes,

Some days ago, Dev Team present Haven's Heroes on Heroes VII Blog. Players can read the specs of four new Heroes:
- Kryztoff, Inquisitor, with a Magic bonus when summoned.
- Tyris, Nice Paladin, whom can increase the production of Cavaliers and Cuirassiers each week in the Area of Control.
- Ymoril, Brave Paladin, whom can increase the production of Guardians and Justiciars each week in the Area of Control.
- Edric, Vincicator whom can increase the production of Wolves of Griffins each week in the Area of Control.

Players have asked Ubisoft which type hall of Heroes developers will implement in the game:
- Recruit any heroes we want, like H6 and H4,
- Or having a tavern, like H5 and H3...
Ubi Nox has sent a message for the community, in order to clear players questions:
Please keep in mind that those Heroes specializations only are 4 examples, there will be of course more variety on this topic. Moreover, Heroes presented in this page are the regular “tavern” heroes but you will also be able to recruit Heroes with a special role in MMH7 story or universe, those ones will have also their own specializations.

Dear Heroes,

A new struggle appears in Ashan, in Seamus' Empire. The Duke Ivan wants to show the people Seamus' atrocity in different nations and frontiers.
A War is about to begin, and all characters have to pledge loyalty to the Emperor, or join the “traitorous” Duke of Griffin.

Using Talonguard as his base of operations, Ivan would gather his and Stefan’s forces, march on Horncrest and remove Seamus from the Holy Throne. Of course, thanks to the information I had obtained on my end, he already knew that beyond the borders of the Stag Duchy, Seamus was also preparing for war…

No, this isn't a petition to get more 'Twilight' books printed (shudder), it's a story about you being able to vote for your favoured H7 Vampire design. By going to the Shadow Council website, you will be able to vote for your favourite of three possible designs: The Vampire Knight, The Night Lady or The Blood Monster.

Two possible innovations here; there is a sword-less alternative, so Limbic may bring back the melee monster we know from earlier incarnations of the series, and there is also the possibility of the vampire being of the female persuation.

The fans have been screaming their proverbial heads off, complaining that the Vampire design shown earlier was both silly and merely a re-hash of assets from Heroes VI. Taking the "advice" to heart, the Devs said they would see if it was possible to change the designs. They did, and apparently it was, so the fans should be happy to see their hard work (shouting at devs is such a strain on the throat, we know) pay off. Finally, then, you can all vote for your favoured design and get something proper into the coming Heroes VII game.

Oh, and there is also a vote on the Lich design. But who cares. Liches suck.
