Heroes of Might and Magic IV Screen Shots
11:16 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Russian gaming site Freelancer has managed to score six images from 3D0's upcoming sequel Heroes of Might and Magic IV, which is now in the late alpha development stage for PC. The images reveal a somewhat radical revision of this now-classic series, with a totally new GUI and a very different pseudo-3D representation of the landscape.

A Mac OS version of this game has not been announced at this point. However, when we last spoke to John Morris of Evolution Interactive, the man behind the Mac ports of Heroes of Might and Magic III and Heroes III Complete, he seemed quite enthusiastic about the possibility and stated he was in contact with the team developing the title. We will be sure to contact 3D0 at the upcoming gaming expo E3 and grill them on the possibility of a Mac version of this game, as the previous Mac ports have proven quite popular. See our related article on the subject for more details.

Very little is known about Heroes IV at this point, besides these alpha-stage screen shots and concept images. We expect previews of the title to begin popping up in June, as the finished version of the game is due in September; in the meantime, check out the screen shots (modem users might want to be aware that the Freelancer page has a painful load time) and form your own theories on what has changed and what will remain the same in this fourth title in the series.
