6:00 AM | Richard Porcher | Comment on this story
Yesterday the official Contraband Entertainment project listing page was updated with the news they are porting Heroes of Might & Magic IV to the Mac. This turn-based strategy title, previously codenamed "Heroin4U" by the company, is now in alpha and has a projected release date of "XMas 2002."
For those not in the know, Heroes of Might & Magic is a series of fantasy-themed strategic role-playing games, loosely based on the Might & Magic RPG series, which has its roots in the earliest days of computer role-playing games. In the game, players control a number of heroes, class-specific characters who lead various armies, collect artifacts, and gain skills as the game progresses. Though the series is more strategy than anything else, it is strongly flavored with RPG elements.
Fans of previous installments in the venerated fantasy/strategy series will no doubt consider this fantastic news. Be sure to check out of first look at Heroes of Might & Magic. When the game gets closer to shipping, we'll be doing a detailed hands-on preview.
