As I came home from work this evening, there was finally some news about the latest developments of Heroes VII:
Firstly, patch 1.7 has been released, the patch notes to which you can read here.
Secondly, the long-awaited campaign The Lost Tales of Axeoth: Unity has also been released, offering players a free boost of 5 new maps written by Terry B. Ray. So it's basically a free DLC. Also in the package are new heroes, artefacts, creatures and adventure buildings.
You can read all about the contents here, or start it up and play why not?
