HIGH CONCEPT
Heroes of Might and Magic IV, the highly anticipated next chapter in the award-winning Heroes of Might & Magic series, combines the proven award-winning gameplay of the Heroes line with an all-new game engine. Like its predecessors, Heroes IV showcases highly detailed fantasy worlds in a battle for territory and resources. Players will command armies comprised of skillful heroes and fantastic creatures who fight enemies, capture towns and collect vital resources and artifacts. Strategic planning and tactical cunning are instrumental in your goal to be undisputed ruler of the new world.

STORY:
When a cataclysm destroys Erathia, Emilia Nighthaven loses everything. Orphaned and alone in a strange new world, she organizes the frightened survivors so they can defend themselves against those who would prey on the weak. But Immortal King Magnus appears and demands her allegiance. Not only does he have the merciless Dragon Golems at his disposal, but also a device capable of enslaving the minds of those who come near him.

How can Emilia defend her kingdom against that kind of power? Soon, her friends unwittingly become her enemies and once again she is truly alone. A glimmer of hope comes in the form of an enemy who unexpectedly switches sides.
