New Screenshot:

Looks cool, but a little confusing, why are the walls so far away from the actual castle?




Because you'll want to protect the city around the castle in addition to the castle itself, just look at some maps of medieval castle cities.

Is this a screenshot of a battle screen or adventure map? Think it's a battle screen where you can view alot around the arena....that's pretty cool!



Was wondering that myself, the view distance suggests battle, but that is an awefully large chunk of terrain being rendered around the battle.
It would be nice if that's the case but I'm hoping it's not going to murder performance.


About Nagas and Horses... aye it has me worried, I can't imagine all Naga heroes being human or even having legs.
This is why the Horses thing sorta bugs me.

Beautiful screenshot, although there are a few graphical glitches here and there, such as the wooden stakes coming out of the stones. Thinking about this, I wonder if there are still moats...

If there are Naga heroes, they are going to be walking around the map without mounts. The Naga don't need them, they're large enough not to look underwhelming in front of mounted heroes.

I think it's a creature. Of course they were re-drawning the art works. We've seen (probably) alfa version of the artworks or something like that on the leak pictures. Plus that creature looks too similar with the leak artwork of the Tide Warrior


It's a male naga with a sword, of course it'll look similar, but they need heroes too and I doubt they will be all humans (or spirits/maidens). And I'm pretty sure this is a hint for the hardcore fans, just like those naga mentions in creature abilities, totally not an "unprofessional leak".

It's not the Tide Warrior, methinks. He looks like he has two arms and carries a broad-bladed chinese type of spear.

EDIT: Actually, wrong. Zoomed in and there are indeed four arms. But he doesn't carry swords...

Btw I asked xhane about the three moons. The writers have agreed that there is only a single moon with 3 phases so that's the official and correct answer for those who were curious.

That is the tide warrior, they said the leaked artworks are not the final arts.

New screenshot is kinda lame and nothing new.


Also why everybody wants more than 6 elementals anyway? snow 6 elementals probably means only phoenix and sabrecat as other neutrals...


Don't limit just one neutral to one Terain..
We need more neutrals.. many more, and upgraded neutrals at least 20-30 neutrals....

Regardless if this is the Tide Warrior or not, it had me thinking of something else. The Spring Spirit of that other screenshot, could be the Spring Spirit as a matter of fact, and not the Water Elemental. Because as we see from the Naga on the background of Michael's figurine pic, though they did say no reveal till March, they keep giving even visual hints here and there.

That's the thing, we don't, some people speculate there might be a Primordial themed elemental like creature but yeah, I agree, I want more non-elemental neutrals, more wild beasts, monsters, mercenaries and eldritch abominations from beyond the veil of time who's only objective is the complete genocide of the elves....
That last one is a bit of wishful thinking.

Of course we can only guess until they tell us anything (if they do), but my guess is that this "leak" was not intentional. It genuinely looks like someone just wanted to take some pictures of the figurine and didn't pay attention at what was on the wall.

Oh come on, they can't be that dumb. Even if the photographer wouldn't notice, the reviewer or the uploader would.

Personally I donīt think they will stray to far from the leaked artwork other then touching it up and add a thing or two. The christmas tree pic did for exampel show the water/spring spirit in another appearance then the leaked artwork. Instead of being all blue the upgraded one had gold details like a golden asian-style crown and some jewelry. Now that for me shows that they are only fiddling with details but not the troops or concepts as a whole.

The leaked artwork we saw today is therefore, in my opinion, not a unit but something else. Maybe a hero, perhaps a boss or an important character but not a wave warrior. Besides, it only has two arms and doesnīt seem to be wielding swords but some spear/staff-thing (canīt really make it out though).

I do think we will be a bit surprised when we see the final artworks for the units, but we probably wonīt find any new or swapped units. The spring spirit will still be there, and not as a water elemental (since itīs a spirit tied to their lore and culture not an elemental). The water elemental will probably look a lot different so the one on the "sotd" should therefore be an non upgraded spirit (just to put us off and make us ramble as usual)

Thanks, makes sense because Asha cocooned herself to become the moon after the War of the Primordial Twins...

In H6, we know that the Phoenix is linked to Asha through her moon..that's why it's light blue in colour.

Frankly, I don't think they've exactly played their cards brilliantly on these things so far*, so I wouldn't be too surprised if they actually were ... but maybe I'm underestimating them.


* Case of point, the build up a massive tension towards reveal of 4th faction, and actually manage to hold everyone in the dark, and then suddenly without any further notice or flair, 3 random screenshots turn up on the German site, and the whole thing just falls flat. That is probably the worst excecuted publicity stunt I've ever seen.

You don't seem to consider how many processes the pics go through before publishing. And the one responsible for the German site simply jumped the gun, that's a matter of him being trigger happy

Well what do I know. All I can judge from is what comes out in our end, and the Stronghold thing was an epic fail. And if that can pass, why shouldn't this one also?

I think that almost all leaks are controled. The christmas tree theatro with the insider, the Naga (Sanctuary) faction creatures. Come on! If these leaks are not controled then they have serious confidential issues

I think that in todays age, with all the computer technology and internet we have access to, it is very difficult for even top companies with top notch security to keep all the info without any leaks. I mean 15 years ago, no-one knew what Heroes 1 was going to be like, there was no internet, no access to information, yet here we are talking, discussing and realising Heroes 6.

I reckon these leaks are real and the people that leaked them get found out and fired!

Do you really think that their system (dev computers) is connected to the net. I don't think so. It's too risky - hackers and so on. They just hold up environment heat with ... "silence". For example yesterday, from where came this skill/spell picture.

Only, I still think this one was not a leak, it was intentional and with them playing with us, looking for our reactions.

Absolutely! And as I said yesterday I hate this game
