The Lost Tales of Axeoth is a set of campaigns for Heroes VII, made by Julien "Marzhin" Pirou and based on earlier (but unused) scripts for Heroes IV created by storyteller Terry B. Ray. Post-poned slightly from the original plan, the first of the two campaigns will be released in February 2016, containing 5 Academy maps and telling the story of Genevieve Seymour. There is a second campaign in the pipeline too, sporting the Stronghold faction.

Weaving stories from the pre-Ubisoft universe into the world of Ashan is something map makers have done in the past, but this is the first time such maps are coming from an official source. Getting these extra maps will no doubt get the fans excited.

From all of us to all of you, have a very merry Christmas and a happy new year - may there be many good games and films under the tree for you.

I'm grazing the Internet and looking for good deals for Christmas; it is customary for shops (both online and retail) to have sales in December since they are looking to take advantage of people's shopping sprees, and because they don't want to have superfluous stock as the year ends.

So far..

MMH7 coverWith our past contributors currently unavailable, I am putting together this game's walkthroughs myself. Now I know how much work is involved. Phew.

So far, I'm about half-way. On our walkthroughs page we now have the campaigns for Haven, Academy and Stronghold listed. Next on my playlist is Necropolis.

The walkthroughs are fairly simple and don't contain any sort of advanced strategy for the individual factions. If you would like to contribute something like that to our site, feel free to contact me.

Several online shops have started their annual "Black Friday" sale - maybe there is a chance to pick up some goodies at a lowered price? Amazon are running their usual Black Friday week, as I type have a sale on GalCiv II and are likely to set up more sales as we approach the weekend, BestBuy are launching a BF sale as well, and the UBiShop have flash deals - although I'm not sure these are BF related.


Could there be a sale on Heroes VII coming up? Let us know if you spot it!

As some of you may have noticed, we don't have an active map submission feature at present. Our database is still operational, but that's about it. You can still access our store Heroes maps from our server but it has not been updated to fit the new standard. This takes time. Our main priority so far has been the integration of the new site with our forums, and getting that to work properly. We are still working on skins and styles, and there are several other features still awaiting integration.

We ask for your patience in this time of transition, and in the mean time, if you want to have your map tested or if you simply want to talk about it, our mapmaking forums are at your disposal.

Say what you will about UbiLimb's policies, but they're certainly patching things faster than UbiHole:

Ubisoft have announced the release of patch 1.3 for Heroes VII. All you gotta do to access it is enable auto-update via Steam or Uplay, or (if you have disabled it), have the program check for available updates. When you start up the game, make sure it reads version 1.3 on the start screen.

Contents of the patch (go here for full patch notes):

  • General and performances improvements,
  • A few multiplayer fixes,
  • Various level design improvements and bug fixing (skirmish, campaigns etc.),
  • Some editor fixes and improvements,
  • Gameplay mechanics fixes & balancing improvements,
  • SFX & audio fixes.

Also in the announcement is a confirmation that there will be another patch (1.4) released in "a the upcoming weeks". Knowing Limbic, though, there could also be smaller hotfixes released if the need arises.
