Heroes Chronicles Free Campaigns
These two downloadable campaigns were originally offered on the 3DO website for customers who have at least a certain number of the Heroes™ Chronicles games installed on their computer. Read the instructions below carefully to learn more and to download the files from FilePlanet. To get Game #1 "The World Tree," simply purchase any TWO of the four Heroes™ Chronicles games at your favorite retailer and install them on your computer. To get Game #2 "The Fiery Moon," simply purchase any THREE of the four Heroes™ Chronicles games at your favorite retailer and install them. Have at least 30 MB of available hard disk space for The World Tree and 60 MB available for both The World Tree and The Fiery Moon. Follow the instructions for downloading the free games (see below). The official download deadline has passed, but we're leaving these files up for an indeterminate time as a courtesy to the community. Note that these campaigns are compatible with the US Domestic versions of Chronicles only.
The World Tree
The World Tree is the essence of life, spreading its vitality to all living things. Although barbarians imagine it to be a real tree, the World Tree can be more accurately depicted as the 'living earth', the entire planet. Normally, the Ancestors protect it from harm, but a cry for help cut suddenly short warns Tarnum that the entire world is in danger. He soon discovers that one of the Ancestors, Vorr, has gone insane and seeks to destroy the World Tree. Vorr has enlisted the help of the Necromancers --who despise all life -- as well as a remote Barbarian tribe, who worship him as a war god, to carry out the destruction of the World Tree. So, once again Tarnum must lead the creatures of the Stronghold town to a distant northern mountain range to battle Vorr and his minions.

    The Fiery Moon
    Although Tarnum managed to save the World Tree, the Insane Ancestor, Vorr, escaped. And the silence of the other Ancestors still worries Tarnum. Have they forsaken him, or is it something far worse? Even as the Immortal Hero sets out to find Vorr, a new enemy appears to stand in his way -- Demons. Soon, Tarnum travels through a magical portal to the homeworld of the Demons -- the Fiery Moon -- and learns that Vorr has teamed up with these chaotic creatures. Not only that, but he's imprisoned the other Ancestors here as well. Tarnum must rescue them first, but once they are safe he plans to destroy Vorr forever, even if it costs him his soul.

    I'd definately recommend getting the Final Chapters, the two campaigns are quite good, though the ending a bit painfull. But you better find out yourself. But $89 is WAY too much for that just one disc. I bought the whole set of the four original Chronicles + the Final Chapters for 10 euro each two years back, that's 50 euro's in total. I'd try to find a better deal.

    sumalmamus: I asked a similar question recently on the forum; have a look at this thread for the replies:

    http://www.celestialheavens.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=67049#67049

    The short answer is that the Final Chapters are /additional/ to the six previous games (four commercial ones plus the two downloads on this page). Although on a single CD, there are two new eight-part Chronicles here (the downloads on this page have only five parts each), bringing the total of Chronicles up to eight, and one of them (The Sword of Frost) tells a story which is a prequel to the Heroes IV back-story.

    If you're a Heroes III fan or a completist, then yes, I'd think that it's worth getting the Final Chapters if you can find them for an acceptable price. If nothing else, there's double the content in this pack compared with the previous four commercial Chronicles.

    Does anyone know what is the story on "the final chapters" It is being advertised on ebay from a german seller for $89 and is described (in part) "Final instalment in the blockbuster Heroes Chronicles series
    Two completely new campaigns to battle through
    Discover and influence the final fight of the legendary hero Tarnum
    Based on the best selling Heroes of Might and Magic III graphics engine" It says it is a "monster bundle" but looks like it is perhaps Heroes complete combined with the end of the chronicles. Anyone know? And is it worth buying?

    These two extra scenarioes don't seem to work on my current machine under Windows XP Pro SP2 (and I haven't had the chance to try them before now, so I've never seen them working at all). They install OK but crash immediately after launch. The other six commercial Heroes Chronicles games all work fine on the same machine. Anyone have any idea how to get these final two working, please?

    Update:
    They do work, but only if you put the CD from one of the first four games into the drive first. The fact that they're download-based games doesn't mean that they don't demand a CD, as I had assumed. Thanks to mrPassenger for pointing this out to me.

    Are these files still available for download? If so, where the hell are they? Thank you. :)

    Indeed they are. I just dowloaded them.
    Are these chronicles the same as the final chronicles or are they different?

    These chronicles are no longer available for download in fileplanet server.
    Please let them available again.
