Ubi drops the Hammers on Heroes of Might and Magic V

Hammers of Fate add-on for Nival Interactive's turn-based strategy game set for a November release.

Turn-based strategy fans can get ready for another helping of Heroes of Might and Magic V, as Ubisoft today announced that it will publish an add-on for the game later this year.

Subtitled "Hammers of Fate," the expansion will feature a new faction in the Dwarves. The stout warriors and practitioners of rune magic will reside in the world of Ashan's most hostile regions.

In addition to the Dwarves (who bring the game's playable factions up to seven), Hammers of Fate will also feature new spells, abilities, buildings, artifacts, single- and multiplayer maps, and a campaign with 15 new missions. And if the premade content ever gets dull, developer Nival Interactive is also including a random map generator.

Hammers of Fate is set for a November release. For more information on Heroes of Might and Magic V, check out GameSpot's review.

The pics look good, but I'm not sure about this.... long time homm fans knows that the games have been plagued with half-@ssed expansions that fall very very flat. While there were a lot of improvements with hommV, there were a lot of problems that prevent it from becoming a must have game. Let's hope they spend a lot of time to polish everything, and not just add some new units and features to the basic game and call it done.

To be honest, i cannot wait. Heroes V made me as exited as i havent been since i played Heroes 3 back in the day (although not nearly to those levels, as Heroes 3 was way better). I'm really looking forward to this. Finally, something worth waiting for.

I'd rather play a new Disciples game. Maybe I'll get this when it's in a sort of Platinum or Gold or Greatest Hits package for $3.

very exciting but I hope that it won't have the bugs like V does, it's still leaps and bounds better than the previous 4.

I'm hoping that this will not have has many bugs as HOM&M5 did on launch I was follwing that game from day 1, And after 2 days of messing around I got rid of it and sold it too my mate. Maybe if I had a better g.card than my 6200 I would of loved it even more. But when they put Easy Mode in patch 1.1 the game was still to dam hard. I created a sernario game to see what kind of magic you can get. I waited near my base so I could at least expand it along came the red team general who was a dead skelington creature. Everytime I tried to his men I missed of if I did managed to kill them he just kept reviving them.

Damn Ubisoft/Nival... They need to fix the stupid buggy unplayable multiplayer and all the damn bugs in the game before they release the patch... I was really disappointed by the lack of support in fixing the buggy game after the release of H5... If they don't do more to fix the game before the release of the expansion, I'm not going to buy it at all... Even now, the game has been collecting dust on my bookshelf for over 1 1/2 months because of the stupid bugs....

All patched up with the most recent updates, HoMM V is a fine, fine game. Early reviews had to deal with some hiccups so the game's meta-scores took a hit. It's a good game.

Meh, another step into making the heroes universe as standard as they get. I really liked the times when dwarfs were limited to a single unit in the ever original Sorceress party.
