To make a long story short, the company died last May. That's why the official site is gone. The company assets were auctioned and Ubisoft purchased the rights to the Heroes of Might and Magic series.

What were you looking for there? Maybe we can help.

Yup, 3DO is gone allright. It went bankrupt because of it's HOMAM4 failure. Not that the game is a failure, but it didn't sell as much as they wanted. Veni, Vidi... and no Vici...

Wrong, Heroes IV sold quite well. It can't be blamed for the financial troubles of 3DO.

But I liked 3do

I liked 3do, they made some pretty good games, it was a shame they had to go. Anyway can anybody tell me how the story to Armageddon's Blade links in to HOMM4. I havent played the AB and do not know what is going on in the opening scene of HOMM4. I believe its Queen Catherine and either Lucifer Kreegan or Kilgor? I dont know can somebody fill me in.

Very philosophical game this if you look deeply into it.

Do the other kids make your life difficult because you say things like that?

huh?

to be honest i dont think anyone really cares about whether someone likes 3do or not, their games kick arse,and its a shame they have to go because they will not be making anymore games (btw, did they finish that 4 horsemen game?)

I was just kidding my friend. It's just that reading a pro-3DO forum post seemed highly unusual.

Who ever sed

Who ever said i was pro 3do? I liked them for Heroes of might and magic and its a shame because they wont be making heroes of might and magic anymore. New World Computing still exists right?

'And then the sword of frost and armageddon's blade clash, a blinding flash. Another turn of the page.'

PS: i assume everyone in this forum likes heroes right??

Solmyr. Don't be sad. Heroes series are going to continue. Even if you liked other games made by 3DO, you would like to know that franchises was sold to other companies. Cheer up! Surely, those companies are going to continue games (they won't buy any franchise then).

Yep The HoMM will continue, as Ubisoft has bought all the licenses and stuff to make the 5th part. Follow the news and information to find out more

then let us just hope that they will not disgrace the name of HOMM with mainstream arse. At least its not EA games (look what they did to Command and conquer, generals is a good game and all but its more like warcraft than C&C)

In the current economy, the Heroes series does need to go mainstream to remain viable. Of course, a game can be mainstream *and* good, but that isn't easy to achieve. 3D graphics are a good step to make the game more attractive.

i think heroes 4 was good but ruined in some aspects by an attempt to make the game mainstream. There were many things that i liked about heroes 3 that 4 didnt have. Graphics were nice though. BUT THEY GOT RID OF THE LIZARD DUDES (see fortress in HOMM3)

Well actually they got rid of the Fortress itself.. only a few creatures (like Hydras) were moved to the other towns, (like Chaos). But I wouldn't say they ruined HoMM4- for me, the storyline was interesting I guess.

well, i just liked the fortress and there were also more towns in Heroes 3, also i liked the way the campaigns linked into each other. Otherwise, heroes 4 is the better game, but could do with more scenarios. I guess i could download some.
