Heroes Of Might And Magic V Previewed
7:32 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

A new preview of the upcoming Heroes of Might and Magic V is now available at Games Radar. HoMM V is the latest in the popular fantasy turn based strategy series. The preview examines the controversy surrounding the recently released public beta on the PC side before going on to look at game play specifics.

The dynamic battle system that forces players to decide on their moves quickly or not get them at all. The multiplayer game gets the most stylish of the new moves: if you don't have time for a whole game you can play short 15 minute duels, one-off battles with hand-picked armies.

You've also got ghost mode. Having to wait for other players to take their turn is tedious, so this enables you to haunt the world as they play, levelling up and boosting your ghoulish skills much as you do with your Hero during your turn. Ghosts can eat one another, steal resources and explore the map, but how much of it you can see depends on how strong your ghost is. Aside from being fun, this gives an incentive for players to finish their turns sharpish.

The Mac version is currently in progress at Freeverse Software and should be released sometime soon after the PC version. To read the full preview click on the link below.
