The new game will benefit from the features and characteristics that established the success of the initial saga while offering a wealth of innovations such as a highly immersive scenario, a variety of appealing factions, modern 3D graphics, a revolutionary tactical combat system, and a story-based campaign mode.

"Ubisoft is pleased to bring back this exceptional series not just for Heroes fans, but to a larger audience that can appreciate the singular combination of a fantasy environment and strategic gameplay," said Alain Corre, Ubisoft's Managing Director for Europe , Asia Pacific and South America . "Online or offline, the breathtaking world to explore, the tactical decisions to make, and the opportunity to build a true Hero will entice players to become a part of the Might & Magic universe."

Developed by a seasoned team at Nival Interactive ( Blitzkrieg , Silent Storm , Etherlords ), the unique Might & Magic experience can be relived on PC by gamers worldwide in early 2006. For more information, visit www.mightandmagicgame.com .
