Brief description of the game
Developer
Might & Magic: Heroes VII is being developed by Limbic Entertainment, a company who isn't unknown to the Might & Magic franchise. Previously they worked on Heroes 6 together with Blackhole Entertainment and when BH went banckrupt, they stepped in and worked on the patching process of the game. After Virtous Gaming took care of H6 expansion, Limbic produced Might & Magic X: Legacy, a revival of the RPG series.

Storyline
Heroes 7 is set right after the 4th Eclipse: Demons storm the capital of the Falcon Empire and massacre the royal house. As the rest of Haven duchies are fighting for power, we'll aid Duke Ivan of Griffin to restore peace in a time of civil torment, with the help of several Ashan factions.

The Shadow Council: OpenDev
The Shadow Council is Limbic/Ubisoft approach to give the fans an opportunity to work in the game. As they did in MMX open dev blog, players will have the chance to vote in certain features of the game. We start big, as we have to choose one of the factions that will be part of the release: Sylvann vs Fortress.
You can read more about the Shadow Council here!

Ashan again? Really?

I really wished they would be wiser and went with a real new start and cut all the dragon-god stuff away.

I hope i'm proven wrong, but knowing ashan, this will be a 3D spectacle full of bugs and female monks, duplicate cheap monsters ect ect.

In that trailer I see green undead, orange stronghold, so the color theme is also back? Disappointing! Also the female centaurs are back in the trailer, I hope that is not in the game.

Storm Giant, are those heroes campaign heroes?

I'd be so disappointed if Academy's is female. Hey, just my opinion. I want a hero that I can relate to for Academy (and Fortress or Sylvan too).

Make the Orc hero female if the want to "balance" it.

This doesn't have anything to do with the universe, but with the creators of the game... It was Blackhole Entertainment back then and now it is Limbic(that tried to fix the mess Blackhole made with H6 but they weren't so successful since the mess was quite big).

We will see, personally I don't care what universe they are choosing, but how it is done matters a lot.

Tbh, I'm okay with them remaining in Ashan, they just need to deepen the homeworld a lot more. (they SHOULD have done that in H5 but w/e)

So what we see in this preview are... Humans, Angels, Orcs, Necro and... Wizards(????) uniting on one front against what I presume are the demons. Lol, so predictable. I'm slightly annoyed by the fact that Necro and Orcs are ONCE AGAIN going to be protagonists, but *sigh*, once the cow's been milked there's no point squirting the cream back up the udders, i guess.

I swear to god, they better NOT give the Elves the shaft AGAIN.

Well Ashan is very limited in creatures and towns as those boring dragon gods are linked to the elements and some towns blablabla

So making up new towns is impossible in Ashan as they all need some boring dragon to support them, and there are only so much dragons and they all have their own town already...

They don't exactly unite, they simply offer Ivan advice on how to proceed next. Eventually he will have to make a choice. The part of the demons is long gone, after they butchered the Falcon family some 5 years ago.

They have to be. Why would they be in the trailer otherwise?

And hopefully the plot will move into something else. 2-3 campaigns for Haven empire it's ok, but 5-6 it would be insanely disgustingly repetitive

No, not really. As far as I know, there are factions that doesn't support any of the Dragon Gods and they can create new things if they want. The thing is, there are 9 known factions for now, and a ton of "subfactions" if you ever played Duel of Champions or know something about that game. There are thousand of creatures they can make.

So creating new factions shouldn't even happen since we will start with 6 factions and they should work first on releasing the 3 that are left.

Wow, really nice screenshots.

I am not sure if that is some sort of campaign battle or it will be like that in normal games, but battlefield is a lot bigger and I really like that! I disliked the fact that a lot of units could pass the battlefield in one go in Heroes 6.

EDIT: Nope, battlefield is still quite small... Well, F*CK IT. xD

4 resources, which is good news, although they look weird to me

Lots of recycling from H6, hopefully for the better....

The more screenshots I see the more uncomfortable I feel. The recycling from H6 makes me unbelievably furious. Hopefully, it will all be gone at the release.

They don't show on the map though. And they are destructable, they never were that in HVI.

Yeah, we have 2 common and 4 rare resources + gold . The third (from left to right) looks wierd, the next two are placeholders I guess. Probably we'll get some new resources. It seems the crystals are back but the others who knows. As the people mentioned above a lot of recycling, probably the graphics engine is the same. The cities look bigger though (if this is a city)
I'm not fond of the graphics but this is a personal opinion.

I hope this time they'll make the things right. This deadline 2015 bugs me, even though the recycling.

This Cabir is a wierd creature - desert lizard or something Another creation of the almighty wizards
