Description

Danse Macabre is the second DLC (downloadable content, dubbed adventure packs in this series) for Might & Magic: Heroes VI. It contains a new campaign, a new Dynasty Weapon as well as a new set of artifacts. A new hero, a unique building on the adventure map and a companion are also included. There is also a scenario map which takes place in Xeen, the location featured in Might and Magic: Clouds of Xeen and Might and Magic: Darkside of Xeen.

The new campaign tells the story of Sandro, a legacy necromancer hero. A long time ago, before the events of Might and Magic: Heroes VI, Sandro was banned and the symbol of his power was removed. Now he returns in Ashan to start his vengeance.

Trivia

Title

The title Danse Macabre was chosen in reference to the classical piece Danse Macabre, Op. 40 composed in 1874 by Camille Saint-Saëns, and the eponymous poem by Charles Baudelaire. Both works are based on the medieval concept of the "Dance of Death", an allegory of the universality of death, usually depicted by a skeleton (a personification of Death similar to the Grim Reaper) playing music and making both the living and the dead dance to his tune.

Sandro, the anti-hero of this adventure pack, is himself a Grim Reaper-like figure, and a manipulator who makes other people "dance" to his plots.

Saint-Saëns' Danse Macabre was also one of the inspirations for Sandro's musical theme.
