* The press release claimed "Might & Magic Heroes VI will include all the characters and features that have made this brand a worldwide success". Is it possible that any classic heroes from the Might and Magic franchise will return in some form for Heroes VI?

This is a request that has been strongly expressed by the VIP fans. As you know, 2011 will be the 25th anniversary of M&M, so surprises are to be expected.

Oh, hot damn, that is beautiful. Gonna be a sight for sore eyes for the people who wanted angels to have four or even six wings, too. I'm just glad that the pretty-boy angels of V are gone in favor of manly-man and girly-girl ones.

I tell you, I keep getting more and more impressed with HVI's artistic style, and the game as a whole, each day that goes by. Here's hoping it lives up to the amount I'm hyping it to for myself!

To any of those out there who has the collectors edition of heroes 5 try to open up and take a look at both the sovereign and...You guessed it(Michael), he is back again. And this time it seems he is actually gonna be in the game. So it seems like the designers of blackhole has called in some old reinforcements, guess they couldn't do completely without some of the designs from heroes 5.

Personally I don't think Black Hole would copy the artstyle used for Michael in the H5 artworks for their own game.

So I say fake as hell.

Also *points at lame feet shadow* very badly done shadow that is not present in any of the other artworks. Looks like someone erased the background of the original pic and left parts of it to emulate a shadow.

If so, how come there is a poll of whether he should be a figurine posted by migh and magic. Here's a a quote:

"Heroes VI Archangel Figurine
Dear fans, In order to give you a deeper Might & Magic experience, Ubisoft is working on new products inspired from this amazing fantasy universe. We are, for example, thinking about developing a high end resin figurine of Michael the archangel, one of the most iconic characters in Might & Magic Heroes VI."

I rest my case.

They went with 'Michael' as the name of an archangel general? Couldn't they have gone with something just a little less biblical?

this was my thought aswell lol. it's not like they need to take everything from the bible. but on the other hand, if that name was already used in heroes 5, they can't really change it anymore.

now, considering in heroes 5 seraphs and archangels were equally powerful, i wonder will they have to reconsider the seraph name, especially since it's the name of the non-upgraded "angel" this time around.

Because it takes place in medieval ages ? I'm not sure it'd be fun if the Archangel was named Jimmy and the Haven main hero Bob ...

That said, I'm with MattII, they can't seriously call the Archangel Michael ... it's so freaking unoriginal and too religious.

Cut them some slack on this one, I can only assume that thet went with Michael due to everyone knowing who he is. Just look at this forum, there is not a single one who doesn't know who the archangel Michael is. Because Michael already has a certain symbology to it, then it becomes easier for the audience to associate him with something powerfull.

Which is exactly why they shouldn't have used it.

Actually it is fairly obvious that all this is encoded in the Bible and they use all these religious references to give us hints. All the five factions are clear since the ancient times, you just need the knowledge to read the texts correctly.

Michael

Born to an Angel family of healers, Michael's destiny took flight in the opposite direction.
The charismatic leader was recognized as a military genius at a very young age and in his first military campaign as commander, he defeated the notorious Azkaal, Infernal Prince of Destruction, saving Ashan from demonic conquest.

When a smoldering conflict between the Angels and the Faceless broke into open war, Michael was appointed to lead the children of Light into battle against the children of Darkness.
The cataclysmic decades to follow were known as the Elder Wars.
The Arch-Angel Michael’s victories have survived through oral histories and writings to this day.

Mysteriously absent for centuries from the face of Ashan, his recent return has been considered a blessing by the Emperor Liam of the Holy Falcon Empire.
No one questions the motivations of his timely return from Ashan's past, for all know that an Angel cannot lie.
