A demo's also useful to see how well it will run on your computer. I'm finally going to suck it up and buy a 3D card for this - H5 runs ok off the motherboard, but this game looks so good I want it all maxed out.

I think Steam is generally OK... There are minor disconnections from time to time but doesnt happen to me often. I play Black Ops and MW2 on Steam and i think its pretty good generally. I preordered Heroes VI from Steam few days ago.(deluxe)

I don't mean to cast doubt on your decision but I want to wait and see if all the different versions (retail and digital) play nicely with each other online.  Buying games is such a headache these days.

I don't believe the game being sold through Steam necessarily means the game will use Steam servers for online multiplayer.

A demo is necessary!
There are traditions that shouldn't be broken! I always play a demo be4 buying a game and I hate it when there isn't a demo.
Also a demo is good for marketing, when people don't know a game they want to play a demo to know if it's good.


After the game is released theres another way to test the game on your computer. I dont want to advertise any illegal deedy, but im pretty sure that most ppl on this forum will buy the game, alltough Im pretty sure that max a week after release the game will be on all the mayor torrent sites, so u can test it on your machine freely

But the most important is: IF U LIKE IT BUY IT, SO UBI WILL COME UP WITH EXPANSIONS AND H7 REALLY QUICKLY

Did you actually know stats/spells before the previous games were released?


@Elvin -> You are right, we already know alot and shouldn't spoil the fun of playing the game when it comes out....

I think the only info that we still need is:

- Proper artworks of Naga & each creature's abilities.
- Town buildings screen and how it works

But I do have a question; We've been told that pre-ordering the game now will grant you access to the coming open beta. Does that mean this is the only way to get access?

Yes. If you think about this, this is the only way for them to give an open beta only to the people that will certainly buy the game, because they already pre-ordered it.
But I don't think the game will release much after the beta, so for those who didn't pre-ordered it will only have to wait something like a week or maybe two.


hmmm, so the beta is actually a full demo then. Not like a Release Candidate. Because I think one or two week is't enough for players to try all features in Heroes VI, report the bugs to Ubisoft, and then let the developer to fix the bugs.

Maybe the found bugs will be fixed at the next patch.

Why do you take for granted a post from someone who is supposing a lot of things and has no real insight on what will really happen ?

It's said nowhere that pre-ordering is the only way to join the beta. It's said nowhere that the beta will be short - it might last 10 days as well as it might last 2 monthes or even more. It all depends on WHAT Ubisoft wants to test in the beta. If it's about game mechanics or about multiplayer it could be a long beta, if it's about balance it could be a short one.

I said yes because Xhane said: Get exclusive access to the Beta!
About the rest. Yes, they're my assumptions. But I thought that was clear when I said "I think that".
Anyways to avoid any confusions I deleted my post.

Long version:

For more information on the word soon when used in gaming media consult WoWwiki (http://www.wowwiki.com/Soon), the modern use of this term was used by Blizzard entertainment, known for it's other terms of the same nature like:
"when it's done"
"when we feel comfortable with releasing it"
"after we have polished it some more"
"probably this year" (read as "maybe three years from now, more likely four, we said probably, not certainly.")
"it will be worth the wait" (which is subjective, statsistics show it is the popular opinion though.)

See also: Valve Time

Short version:

"Soon" is not very soon at all.

Strange!? Every company (computer games) starts to be infected from this disease 'SOON'. 'SOON' was (is) a trade mark for Blizzard as MrDragon said.

In the sanctuary topic Avirosb pointed out an interesting point.

Do you think that Blackhole is overdoing it with the tattoos and body motives? I for my self have a tattoo of my own, and i do like this tip of detail. but when more than 35% of the unites have such a motive.. Is ti to much or not?

 Ya but mostly on elemental female characters (Glory's, River spirit/water elemental sole exception being the orcs but for them fits with the theme of tribes and tribal markings a and forgot the magic Inferno hero) and mostly to cover up ni****s, which if had not been covered the game would have gone to a 16+, so bottom line is they had to give the tattoos in a lot of cases, when being put with a tough choose give "fan service" but not go in adult rating and still make it have sens not much room for choices...

So, how does it feel to have a unit named after you?


Who me ? , funny think is, first there not exactly similar Kenishi - Kensei, but mine is made up and just a few days when somebody explained on the forum what Kensei stands for I realized how close I was to a really cool and meaningful nickname.

If not referring to my nick never mind consider it a lunatics babbling.

No, they took the japanese word kenshi, that means swordsman, and used it.
