Heroes of Might and Magic II and III were two of my most loved games growing up.

I doubt I'll be checking this out though, I can't imagine a game like HOMM translating to an MMO and still keeping any of the special flavor that made them such a great games.

I totally agree!

My bro-in-law worked as a level designer for HMM III and through him I was able to write one of the quests for the game! :D

I hope they do a good job of this, I wasn't super thrilled with V (though I didn't give it a lot of time and when it didn't work on Vista/7 then it became useless to me).

I love love love this series (Heroes III ftw)!!!!!!

Not sure how well it will translate into the MMO context... but exciting nevertheless!

Ubisoft .... hopefully they can provide a better server platform for this than they do for their copy protections of current games.....

Ubisoft take over of Might and Magic = FAIL
Heroes of Might and Magic as an MMO = FAIL
Chinese style PVP approach to an MMO = FAIL


All of these together cannot equal anything but FAIL.

Heroes II & III are legendary to me. Brings back so many memories. I don't know, this can be good maybe. I hope it will.

its kind of funny how Evony and Heroes of Gaia have gotten the big publishers to get off their butts and release web games.

I'm pretty sure that whatever Evony does has zero effect on the games industry.

@ultra: it got EA to make Lord of Ultima, which is a pretty shameless evony clone.

This sounds awesome, it's good to see that they stuck with the familiar formula while making the jump to an on-line format. The cynic in me thinks that their development decision to go with that developer will result in an Asian mass market experience that won't go over well outside of that region. Hopefully I'll be proven wrong.

I remember enjoying II and III back in the day. I was horrible at them...the AI was a god awful cheater.

What was fun (for me) about this game in its earlier incarnations was assembling my little team of (NPC) heroes and heading out for adventures.

Now that it will be an MMO, I presume this will mean "goodbye NPC team, hello LFG." Ugh. No thanks to that.

But I'll wait and see, maybe there will be enough Atlantica Online influence in this new game to permit players at least the option of grouping up with other players or using NPCs.

This MMORPG will require a constant internet connection, like some other Ubisoft releases.

Damned DRM!
