During Ubidays 2007, Ubisoft affirmed the retail radar's rumblings that an Xbox 360 version was under way for Dark Messiah of Might and Magic...sort of. While confirmation was quick from the France-based publisher of a European release, no time frame was given for when Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements would hit store shelves. North American gamers were further left in the cold, as Ubisoft reps were only willing to comment that "this game has not been officially announced for a US release."
Today, Ubisoft sends word that DMOMAM:E will indeed be making its way to North American Xbox 360s. Developed by Ubisoft's in-house Annecy studio, Elements is a redux of last year's decently reviewed fantasy first-person action game for the PC.
The game will feature an updated single-player campaign that offers several game tweaks, as well as updated gameplay mechanics to accommodate the Xbox 360's gamepad. Elements will also include a reworked multiplayer component that features maps not seen in the PC version of the game.
Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements is slated for a first quarter 2008 release. It has not yet been rated, though the PC original was rated M for Mature.
