Legendary Heroes - Elemental: Fallen Enchantress

Legendary Heroes Launch Video - http://www.elementalgame.com/legendary-heroes/media?playreleasevideo=1
What's new? - http://www.elementalgame.com/legendary-heroes
Two New Factions.

The Objectivist Capitarians and the Industrious Urxen have been added.
Fame.

Champions are no longer placed randomly on the map but instead are earned through fame that your civilization generates through its deeds.
New Leveling System.

Your sovereign and your champions now evolve through a skill tree that visually allows you to pre-plan what kind of hero you want him or her to be.
New Tactical Battle Maps.

Battles are now much more intense with far more special skills available and initiative being far more important. New combat mechanics - such as swarming increase the strategic options.
New Monsters.

The Legendary Heroes did not reach our lands alone. Their ancient enemies have arrived with them - including the nightmarish liches and their skeletal minions, banshees and the dreaded Garagoxi seek dominion over Elemental itself.
More Magic.

New spells like "Wall of Fire" and "Raise Horde" add new options and new dangers to battle.
New Quests, Items, and Equipment.

All of the factions will encounter new quests, gain access to new weapons, armor and equipment and discover many new treasures as they explore the world.
Huge Maps.

A new gigantic sized map delivers epic sized games.
Updated Graphics Engine.

The graphics engine delivers stunningly new visuals while improving performance on older machines.
Updated User Interface.

May all Heroes of Might and Magic Rest In Peace.  We finally have a successor to 3DO, in Stardock.  This game is truly a beautiful work of art.

Already out is it?  thanks for those links (saves me time).
Now I'd like some of HC to post their detailed reviews before I think about getting my "free" game (from buying the original ofc, but I wonder if there is a time limit for that redemption tho)

As someone whose not only been playing the game for many months, but also the Heroes series since the original King's Bounty, I highly recommend checking out the links I've embolden in the OP.  This game truly is a beautiful work of art.  If you are one of the 80,000 or so people receiving it for free, I wouldn't hesitate a second to begin downloading it.  However I am fairly certain that there is no time limit as to when this must be done by.

Been waiting for this.

Yeah, this is definitely something for Heroes fans to check out.

As soon as my budget allows, I'm getting it. Stardock be praised, along with CD Project RED and Valve, they're my favourites in the video game industry.

I'm also one of the 80k who is supposed to get it for free. I'll try it out some time this holiday season and see how much of an improvement it is over the original game. It was certainly a good move to give the original supporters the game for free. Stardock is more of a gamer friendly company than most out there.

This looks pretty sound and would be a good PR-move for my previous Stardock-experience...ejecting after about 20 minutes.

Empire of Resoln seems very Necro-ish... worships Death and can recruit spiders. Cool.

How's the faction creation part of the game? I'm really hyped about the idea of writing my own faction's lore and making my own units and ****.

Designing custom units is one of my favorite parts of the game.  By the end of a large map you may have dozens of templates in store, having discovered many new strategies, responses, and resources.  The AI will then use your designs against you on future maps!


The game only offers a single player experience at the moment, because Stardock wanted to devote all assets to ensuring that it was great, before implementing multi-player.  However, they developed the game in such a way that if it reached enough people multi-player could be added in an expansion.

Interestingly I checked my emails & surprisingly got one from Stardock reminding me about it, so at least that's very nice of them to actually make some effort to contact everyone.

But after reading some (non-HC) reviews, I still have the same reservations similar to before... so I'd like some detailed user reviews esp opinions comparing how much they've improved upon the original, good/not so good etc.  Ofc, it's possible the game may get better at a later date after an expansion or 2.

Faction creation looks very nice.

I remember in Gal Civ 2 I found it quite annoying to constantly redesign my ships with new technology, making me end up with like over 9000 different ship designs with minor differences. (My Legacy Edge battleships had Mark 1 through like Mark 40 ^^)

How does Fallen Enchantress handle this? Let's say I design a Warg Rider, and then research a new type of armor that I want my Warg Riders to wear, can I simply upgrade them or do I have to make an entirely new unit?

When a unit is designed each piece of equipment may be set to Upgrade, which allows the troop to equip the best item in that category as new ones become available, and for the appropriate resource cost.  This process may of course only be performed while within home territory.  Design templates are also updated accordingly.

SKPRIMUS - The Let's Play videos and other links in my above posts should tell you everything you need to know to determine whether or not the game is worth clicking a download button.  Why one would wait is beyond my comprehension.  Personally, I would much rather play and mod than write you a report.  Perhaps somebody else has the time?

Man that sounds awesomely convenient.

Man this game will devour every last part of me if I buy it. A game that satisfies my obsession with writing fantasy faction lore and designing units? I'm screwed.

I already have like 20 faction ideas running through my head.

Thanks for posting the links yogi. I looked through the pics about the game, looks very interesting. Actually it's more like what I hoped I was getting when I bought Elemental. Btw, I was surprised to see a lot of older posts in the forum since it just came out?

One thing I like already is that Magic is really spread out. I think it should be a great idea since it will keep players from knowing most magics. I only have one fear and that's balance.

With that tool I could effortlessly make quests that integrate my faction's lore into the world.

Wow.
