Heroes of Might and Magic III is the best continuation of the award-winning Heroes of Might and Magic series published by The 3DO Company and developed by New World Computing. This turn-based, strategy war game is set in the fantasy world of the Might and Magic role-playing games. Like these games, Heroes III features a rich magic system, intense character development, a bestiary of fantastic foes and allies, quests, a world to explore, and gripping story lines. It is, however, focused on elements of strategic conquest -- the building of mighty armies, territorial expansion, siege warfare, and the clash of battle.
In Heroes III, you control the actions of Heroes to complete mission objectives in a variety of conflicts taking place in the mythical land of Erathia. As Heroes travel across the land with their armies, they can explore, seek artifacts and find treasure, as well as lead their armies into battle. Towns can also have armies garrisoned for their defense and act as centers for recruitment and the learning of magic spells, and trading. Towns you conquer become part of your territory. You can develop your towns to provide yourself with offensive, defensive, and logistical advantages.
Missions can be self-contained single scenarios, linked together into multi-scenario campaigns, or played as multi-player scenarios against other human players across a network. While a vast array of pre-designed scenarios come with the game, you can also create your own using the provided Map Editor tool. However you choose to play, we’re sure that you will be pleased with Heroes III. Enjoy.
