10.16.2014: Today's Twitch.tv broadcast Roundup:
Quote:
- There're 4 levels of Magic Guild, level 1 spells can be learned by any hero without skills. Spells are random, but at least one of the Faction's prefered school are granted to happen in each level. There's also a specialization system to influence in the chances of getting spells from the Magic School you're interested in.

- On the Academy lineup, Cabirs are spirits of fire, they can repair constructs. Apprentices are Elite, the basic creature has a pierce ranged attack while the upgrade gets an additional Area-of-Effect attack.

- There'll be lineup vote for the sixth faction winner. Succubus and Minotaur are confirmed for Inferno/Dungeon lineups, if they make through.

- We will be able to destroy buildings on the towns (so we can freely choose our faction champion without dreading of finding the other choice on another town). We might get some resources back from destroying buildings.

- Initiative system will be similar to Heroes 6, but with a few tweaks.

- Currently the Skillsystem is non-random, but it's being discussed about implementing randomness.

- Dynamic morale: if you kill an enemy stack, your troops get additional morale while enemy troops morale is reduced.

- Map Editor will be part of the game

- Caravans will take several turns to reach the city, like in H4 or H5.

- No Tear/Blood system, no H6-type Bosses (custom battles instead).

- External Dwellings - no unique buildings for creatures from same tier (as in H6)

Cool timeline slideshot of the release of all Might & Magic games.

08.20.2014: Celestial Heavens Q&A with Ubisoft and Limbic on Might & Magic: Heroes VII
Some highlights: Map Editor is a key part of the game, no permanent connection is neccessary, neutrals are in, story of the campaign and more. HC related discussion thread.

08.19.2014: Heroes 7 website update: discover Fortress!
Narrated by necromacer Kaspar.

Quote:
- War machines will get a new twist (exactly what is not yet revealed)
- Some battles could have other objectives than killing all enemies [From the context I'm assuming they are talking about single tactical battles]


08.18.2014: Heroes 7 website update: discover Sylvan!
Narrated by necromacer Kaspar.

08.18.2014: Some info revealed by the insiders!
Quote:
1. Heroes 7 Haven is based on the brutal Wolf Dutchy, not on the holy Griffin one from Heroes 6.

2. Campaign-only creatures will be available for Ivan, and possibly, someone named Sheymus. One of those creatures will be the Griffin.

3. Bosses are confirmed.

4. Reputation system most likely will NOT return.

5. Dynasty weapons most likely will NOT return.

6. Necromancy and healing will be like in previous games, not Heroes 6. Healing will NOT resurrect.

7. Some creatures and races will be updated from the Heroes 6, others, like Sylvan, Academy or Fortress - are from the scratch. Expansions are feasible due to the existing audience and some existing designs.

8. The mist in the haven town screen is a bug.

9. There will be a lot of different types of battlefields. Some with many obstacles, some with almost no obstacles.

10. The UI is not final. (d'uh!)


08.17.2014: Short interview to Julien Pirou
More about choosing Unreal Engine 3, and H7 mechanics direction.

08.15.2014: Exclusive gameplay demo by IGN.
Youtube link. Screenshots of the video can be found here

08.15.2014: Ubisoft blog about H7 announcement.
Quote:
You’ll find over 60 hours worth of content in the single-player campaign as you fight to end the civil war tearing the Holy Empire apart. On top of the campaign, the game also includes Hotseat local multiplayer, competitive LAN battles, and Skirmish and Duel modes.


08.14.2014: 4Players.de preview.
Quote:
- you have to register your game in Uplay once, after that you can play it offline
- the sector control system with its forts as in H6 will return although there will be some changes to the system
- permanent changes to the adventure map will be possible (they mention an avalanche from a mountain that can block a path and they mention destroying a statue in the underworld to drain a sea in the world above which then results in a new explorable area where the sea was before)
- there will be a new flanking system for the battle system, attacks from the side and from behind will do more damage to a creature
- spells are no longer permanently learned as skills as in H6, you have to buy them in a town or find them on the adventure map (it's not worded that clear in the article but to my understanding they simply return to the old spellsystem)


08.13.2014: MMH7 Q&A with Gary Paulini(Game Producer) and Stephan Winter(Limbic Entertainment CEO)

- Skillwheel is back !
- There will be 7 campaigns of 4-6 maps each: one per faction and a final one. You can do the "final"  campaign anytime you finished one campaign, but the less campaigns you've completed, the harder to complete it will be
- There will be 7 ressources : no sulfur, mercury or gems though
- The current UI is a prototype
- There will be more interaction with map objects
- The game uses the Unreal Engine 3
- A map-editor will be shipped with the game

- We will be able to destroy and repair some map objects like bridges

Some info from the insiders:

1. Heroes 7 Haven is based on the brutal Wolf Dutchy, not on the holy Griffin one from Heroes 6.

2. Campaign-only creatures will be available for Ivan, and possibly, someone named Sheymus. One of those creatures will be the Griffin.

3. Bosses are confirmed.

4. Reputation system most likely will NOT return.
