Heroes of Might and Magic 3 Heading to PC, Tablets
If you were playing PC games back in the 90's, then the Heroes of Might and Magic series probably has a special place in your gaming heart. Particularly the classic Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Restoration of Erathia which was probably the pinnacle of the series (I, for some reason, preferred HoMM2, but 3 was pretty spectacular too)
Today Ubisoft announced that it has revamped HoMM3 with HD graphics and is launching it onto PC as well as iPad and Android tablets in January! It appears to be the same great game, but the graphics have been improved to allows for widescreen aspect ratios on PC. The iPad version looks pretty spiffy, too, though.
It will have a campaign, but anyone who's played the HoMM games knows that the real fun is in the skirmish mode. This version doesn't fail there, with 48 different skirmish maps. It will only have local multiplayer, so I'm guessing that means hotseat or pass-and-play.
Look for HoMM3 to hit PC and tablets on January 29, 2015.
