HoMM V Ships for PC; Mac Status
7:17 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Ubisoft is now shipping the PC version of Heroes of Might and Magic V, the latest episode in the turn based strategy series. In related news The Mac Centric: Heroes of Might and Magic V website is reporting that Freeverse Software is hard at work on what may be a difficult port.

Freeverse VP Colin Smith dialed the HOMM•V for OSX! hotline yesterday with an update on the OSX port:

We now have the GM Source and have started work. It won’t be an easy port, it’s looking like there are a few complicated issues, (most of which go over my head since I’m not a coder), but we’ll get it done! No time estimate yet it’s still too early in the process.

Colin also mentioned that their working relationship with Ubi has been smooth sailing, and describes the HOMM•V producer / mastermind Fabrice as “very pleasant and accommodating to work with.” Hopefully this will mean that there will be no trouble keeping the OSX version in lock-step with developments on the PC-side.
