How much would you pay for a new HOMM3 expansion pack

Just out of interest, if 3d0 or Ubisoft, or whoever the hell has the rights to the HOMM series decided to release a new Homm3 expansion pack with a handful of new towns, heroes, creatures, artifacts and scenarios, and the animation style was the same as the original games, how much would you be willing to pay for it?

It isn't so much about paying before checking its quality first.

Besides, the game is quite old to add any new expansion. The work done is by modders. I'd prefer a new game, but considering H6 and H7, I doubt it can get better.

15 euro's or something, but I expect quality for that too.

Would wait for reviews first if Ubi was the one to produce it....Lost my confidence in that, even their HD release of HoMM 3 (which looked pretty cool IMO to admit) only had the Restoration of Erathia content and they charged way too much for that...

This.

If an official 3rd expansion pack (I don't have much faith in Ubisoft) where ever to come, I would probably pay a lot for it.

for my share I would have gladly paid the modders a full RRP for In the Wake of Gods, Horn of the Abyss or another fan mod (ironically they are free though) or an expansion created by people of the original team, but I will never pay for an expansion created solely by Ubisoft or their minions because I believe they are talentless crooks lol

I was going to say I was glade to pay the full price (here is around 50 euros) for an expansion with the quality of HotA and the tools from Era but to tell the truth I just once donate a couple of bucks in the HD Mod and the button is right there waiting for a click.

Expansion Pack with HD addon would best option nice option or if Heroes 3 would have fate same as Age of Empires 2. Not only it was remastered with better textures but also include 2 fanmade expansions.

I would buy Heroes 3 Ultimate Edition:
ROE, AB, SOD, Chronicles, ERA, HOTA, VCMI and HD MOD as one bundle.

I would pay 100 $ for an all-new HOMM made by JVC.

However, if it's from Ubi****, whatever Ubi**** tries to do, I will boycott it and call to boycott it, because Ubi**** has desecrated this franchise way beyond limits and has proven time and again over the last decade that not only they don't comprehend it, don't want to comprehend it, but willingly keep on pissing on its grave in order to milk a few cents out of its overly desecrated body.

Wow, people really hate Ubisoft! I'll be very honest, my only major exposure to the series has been Homm3 and its expansion packs and a little bit of 1,2, and 5. Why is Ubisoft the devil?

Yep, no UBI snow. I've payed this year 35 euros for Age Of Wonders 3 and it's a lot of fun. I guess, 20-25 euros for Heroes 3 is OK.

it is a very long story mate and can induce a pain in the bum, however check this for the cliffnotes, also beforehand quick protip to bear in mind New World Computing is the creator of the series and Ubisoft merely bought it for 2003 after Heroes 4 cheers lol

I don't entirely hate Ubisoft, Honm 5 is one of their best games i've ever played. Of all the HoMM's i would give it a second spot (especially since the great homm 5.5)

The problem with h5 is everything but the gameplay sucks. Then the gameplay (not before TotE though) is fantastic, so of course the right course of action for Ubi**** was to get rid of its developers after it.

My conviction is only JVC can make Heroes great again (I mean a modern Heroes), but he needs to get his IP back for this.

I still prefer TotE version over Dvarves Expansion and 1.6 Version. I like Stronghold in TotE.

This.

If they'd pull an AoE2 HD and call the fans who made the most appreciated mods/unofficial expansions to make them official, I'd be up for it. HotA is the best option, IMO, since it delivers a more authentic HoMM3 gameplay than WoG, and pair that with the HD mod... then enjoy the revenue.
