The 3DO Company has confirmed that it will release an expansion pack for Heroes of Might and Magic IV, its popular turn-based strategy game, later this year. The expansion will be titled Heroes of Might and Magic IV: The Gathering Storm, and it will include new maps, campaigns, creatures, artifacts, and other new features.
The expansion, which is scheduled for release in the third quarter of 2002, will feature more than 20 new single-player maps, six new campaigns, and four new creatures. In addition, it will contain 18 new artifacts, new campaign editor features, new heroes, and a new music track. The expansion will also include the Heroes of Might and Magic IV multiplayer update.
Heroes of Might and Magic IV was developed by New World Computing, the studio that created the previous games in the series, and released in April.
