Here is the lovely world map that comes with the Collector's Edition of Heroes V. If you look closely, it includes a few hints about the factions of an upcoming expansion pack (more about that later). Thanks Jerrie/Labyrinth.

It looks like a ruin to me, not like a town.

People here seem to know a lot about the heroes 5 already. I only played the demo and haven't read all that much of articles.

Wow, that's right! The structure to the east of Stonehelm really does look kinda like Fortress... but I must say, it's also ambiguous...

I have yet to see anyone point out that the two city-looking images on the map near Ranaar look like a goblin hut from heroes 3, and a.... dun dun dun....

Yes, probably in Ranaar, with the exiled humans that still worship Sylath... Hmm, maybe they'll form a sort of alliance? Something along the lines of a barbarian city?... ;|

So it's probably a mage town, right? What I like to know is where the Orcs settled. Somewhere in the East the Academy history says.

But Karthal, what kind of town is that? A coast type kind of town with pirates?

It's where Dark Messiah will take place IIRC...

@jerseys:
There are 2 lands that don't match any known factions: Grimheim and Ranaar. We're thinking Dwarves for Grimheim and Free Cities of the East (Humans/Air Dragon) for Ranaar.

Well the idea of an Europe-shaped continent kinda reminds me of Warrior Kings. Europe was placed there in a medival + fantasy setting...

So, what are the new faction that are hinted at?

The large version is up. My apologies to dial-up users. :)

Thanks again, Labyrinth.

Europe? Bah... So predictable. :tongue: To me it looks more like a certain continent also oriented towards the west, with the elves in the north-west and the bad guys in the south-east...


That one was modeled after europe as well.And this one looks a bit weirder,somehow stretched.

Also, I wonder what's with that awkward shape towards the eastern part of the continent, that isthmus-like area. Why is it like that? What's on the other side?...

Good. In the Czech republic, the map will be even in the standard edition- along with M&M IX and an energetic drink

Oh, my map :D

Thanks for hosting :)

PS: And it DOES look like Europe :P

PS again @AS: I have that shot in a size of like 2500+ px width. I can send it by mail, if you're interested. (Otherwise you'd have to shoot your own map ;) )

Grimheim is Nordic then....think that Grimheim is home to the Dwarves. It says in one campaign cut-scene about not getting help from the Dwarves.

Then the Holy Griffin Empire must be Poland :D

Hehe, yeah it looks alot like europe, dwarves and elves in the scandinavian part of Ashan it seems. TSC represent Africa, Heresh Italy, Greece etc. And Ranaar = Russia :D

"And a scaned version would be better."

Agree

Is it just me, or does that look a heckuva lot like Europe?

Now where did you get that silly idea from? :devil:

And a scaned version would be better.
