HoMM V: Hammers of Fate Announced For PC
9:22 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Last week Ubisoft announced the November 2006 release of Heroes of Might and Magic V: The Hammers of Fate, an expansion to the fifth game in the Heroes series. Hammers will add a new playable faction, 15 new missions, and a variety of new spells and items.

Here's a few of things offered in the new expansion:

- New faction: Introducing the brand-new Dwarves faction, made up of heroic warriors and rune magic adepts who stalk Ashan’s deepest mountains and most hostile regions.

- A brand-new adventure: Featuring 15 new missions, new heroes, and improved cut-scenes, the new campaign will lead players even deeper into the dramatic events that began with Heroes of Might and Magic® V.

- Extended game experience: Includes a wealth of new spells and abilities, 5 new single-player maps, 10 new multiplayer maps, new buildings, new artifacts, and new neutral creatures, Heroes of Might and Magic® V: Hammers of Fate gives players the tools to develop new tactics, and further their game experience both online and offline.

- Improved mechanics and gameplay: Thanks to new features such as Caravans and a random map generator, players will enjoy unlimited replayability and an even smoother gameplay experience. In addition, the simultaneous turn feature will speed up online games.

Freeverse Software is currently hard at work on bringing HoMM V to the Mac. There is no word yet on whether or not Hammers of Fate will also make it's way to eager Apple owners.

A handful of screenshots of HoMM V: HoF are available at the Worthplaying site listed below.
