‘Heroes of Might and Magic 3 HD Edition’ Coming to iPad in January

Ubisoft has announced that the classic PC game Heroes of Might and Magic 3: The Restoration of Erathia is making its way to iPad early next year, in a new HD edition, which will release on January 29th, 2015. This turn-based strategy game has players managing their team of heroes as they explore the world, collecting resources, taking over towns, and completing the objectives necessary to win. Enemies are battled on hexagonal grids, with experience being earned for the heroes, with the ability to upgrade their skills to help try and win. The game is being ported over by DotEmu, and features HD visuals, with tons of art assets redone for modern high-resolution graphics.

The game sadly will only be based around the original version of the game and not the expansions, as the source code for the expansions was allegedly lost. Still, a new audience is going to get to play this for the first time, complete with the series’ famous hotseat multiplayer, and deep strategic gameplay intact. And who knows, maybe the source code for the expansions might just turn up somewhere, someday, in a programmer’s garage deep in a box somewhere…
