"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."
