    About Heroes of Might & Magic® V: Tribes of the East

    For the first time, play as the Orc faction and recruit heroes, build armies and manage cities as you explore and conquer legendary lands. Use tactics, skills and magic to outsmart fantasy armies while developing your heroes and unveiling the dark plot that threatens to tear the world of Ashan apart.

    Heroes of Might & Magic® V: Tribes of the East chronicles the final chapter in the epic struggle that began with the interrupted wedding of Queen Isabel. Players will follow the steps of the Necrolord Arantir as he uncovers the prophecy of the Dark Messiah of Might and MagicTM and exposes the Demon Sovereign’s conspiracy.

    Following this brilliant conclusion to the Heroes of Might & Magic® V story, the world of Ashan will never be the same again…


    * New Orc Faction: First made famous in Dark Messiah of Might & MagicTM, the brutal Orc faction now comes to the Heroes series. Savage, fiercely proud, and resolutely independent, the Orcs put the “might” in Might & Magic. This faction’s troops include Orcs, Goblins, Cyclops, and the famed Pao Kais.

    * New Campaign: Experience the dramatic conclusion of the usurper Biara’s reign. Discovering the demonic influence that corrupts the Haven knights, the savage clans of the Orcs will take up arms to eradicate the Inferno threat. Characters from Dark Messiah of Might & MagicTM will also appear to bring an unexpected twist to this multi-layered plot. In addition, tribes of the East will also feature 10 multiplayer and five single-player maps.

    * New Upgrade Level: Every creature in the Heroes® V universe will get an alternative upgrade level, increasing the total number of creatures in the Heroes of Might & Magic® V line to over 170! These powerful new abilities are sure to become an integral part of your combat tactics.

    * Extra Content: Expand your arsenal and gameplay with new spells, artifacts, buildings and innovative features such as the combo-based Artifact Power Link and Battle Rage, the unique racial ability of the Orcs.

    * Standalone Product: In order to allow both fans and newcomers to enjoy this dramatic conclusion to the Heroes® V experience, Tribes of the East will be a standalone product – no previous Heroes game installations will be required to play.

    I'm sure that's great news for some. And indeed it is a very good game.

    I played HOMM2 when it was new, and I had fun with it but got exasperated when a scenario would turn into a long runaround.

    Years later (just a year or so ago, in fact) I bought HOMM3 Complete. There's plenty to that, and I was enjoying it until I turned my wife on to it when she was looking for a new game. Now she plays it all the time, and I've turned to other games.

    She felt she'd "finished" HOMM3 at one point, though (even though she usually plays only on the Easy level), and she bought HOMMV (skipping IV, since it got such mixed reviews). But she played it for only five minutes before complaining loudly and giving up on it. She hates the 3D graphics.

    So, I introduced her to an elaborate set of HOMM3 mods called Wake of the Gods (WoG). It's a free download, and it expands HOMM3 in all kinds of different ways. My wife is delighted with WoG.

    But she says she'll never play HOMMV.

      HoMM 3 likely has the most made for it.

      I actually enjoy HoMM 4 myself though.

      I think HoMM V is the best of both 3 and 4, but the graphics might not do it for everyone.

      I'm glad they have done this new expansion.

      Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
      I didn't for a long time either.

        That's good to hear! I've stopped playing Heroes V lately, but will get back into it when things slow down. Will have to pick this up!
