    It's All New, Period. The Reinvention of the Award Winning Franchise

    Heroes of Might and Magic® IV is more than a sequel - it's a celebration of both the old and the new. With an all-new engine that features a new magic system, new campaigns, new hero-character classes, and gameplay that varies according to how you play, you'll be amazed at how much the Heroes’ you know and love has improved!

    Players familiar with the Heroes series will immediately notice many improvements to the familiar interface and gameplay:

    * Now you can actively lead multiple hero-characters into battle to fight alongside troops for an intense combat experience. You'll encounter all-new heroes and over 60 creatures in 6 massive campaigns and 24 scenarios.
    * With an all-new game engine, lifelike isometric view, breathtaking graphics and richly detailed landscapes, the adventure map comes alive! Heroes’ IV combines the latest technology with the best features of the classic strategy game.
    * With 48 Hero Classes and all-new skill and magic systems, summon all your strategic insight, tactical cunning and leadership abilities to ascend to the throne of this perilous new world!

    Newcomers to Heroes of Might and Magic® will find that, while the game includes very detailed scenarios and hero possibilities, the series itself is renowned for its ease of use. Much of your time will be spent exploring the maps and continents, collecting resources, and engaging the enemy in battle. Visit towns, explore forests, raid castles…each of these places is a new opportunity to build up your army, earn gold, and gain new territory and hero-characters!
