Description

Might & Magic: Heroes VI - Shades of Darkness is an add-on sized successor to Might & Magic: Heroes VI. It is set a century after Heroes VI and features two campaigns with the protagonists Raelag (from Heroes of Might and Magic V) and Vein (from Might & Magic: Duel of Champions): Raelag is a dark elf who has to ensure the survival of his faction while Vein is a death knight working together with a necromancer faction. Of course the plot quickly gets more convulted and the two protagonists eventually cross paths.

The gameplay mechanics are unchanged compared to the main game; the major difference is the mission design. They are mostly designed for experienced players, don't allow for many mistakes and often have a turn limit. This game also introduces Raelag's Dungeon faction (which brings new units, cities and buildings), new hero classes, seven creatures, one mount and several new artifacts.
