Relive The Legacy in This New Might & Magic Heroes VI Trailer
The next installment of the popular Might & Magic RPG series–Might & Magic Heroes VI–comes to life in a newly released trailer from Ubisoft that shows off the game’s incredible graphics and engaging story arc that’s replete with lore, myth, and the signature fantasy elements that have defined the series.
With impressively designed characters this trailer brings the world of Ashan, and takes place four centuries before the events in Might & Magic Heroes V, making it a prequel to the fifth title. Check below for a story synopsis taken right from the game’s Wikipedia page:
A legendary Archangel general, revived hundreds of years after perishing during the Elder Wars, plots to recover his powers and take control of Ashan while battling a supposed Demon invasion, but is impeded by the Griffin dynasty, led by Duke Slava.
As a war erupts between them, Slava is assassinated in his throne, leaving behind as heirs his five children — Anton (Haven), Anastasya (Necropolis), Kiril (Inferno), Sandor (Stronghold) and Irina (Sanctuary).
Combined with the robust story and fantasy elements, this upcoming PC-exclusive RPG has a high appeal to gamers and fans of the series as well as the fantasy genre. Might & Magic Heroes VI marks the culmination of the former titles in the franchise, breathing new life into the series by stepping back into Ashan’s historical past. Coupled with breathtaking visuals and new in-game mechanics and aspects, this game is much more than just any other RPG prequel: it’s an unforgettable experience that players will enjoy many times over.
