You might have already seen the other articles focusing on the Shadow Council functioning or the first vote to decide the next faction for the game (Sylvan vs. Fortress). Through this website, our core objective is to share our passion for Might & Magic® Heroes VII with you all!

Along the following months we will unveil numerous content and insights about the development of this title. But before we venture into the future, let’s go back to the beginning in order to introduce (or reintroduce) the Might & Magic® Franchise and the Might & Magic® Heroes series.


What is Might & Magic®?

Former Might & Magic® Logo Created in 1986 by Jon Van Caneghem & New World Computing, Might & Magic® started as a first-person RPG with its very first episode, “Secret of the Inner Sanctum”. This original game quickly became one of the historical pillars of the genre. Generations of gamers explored the lands of Varn, Terra, Xeen and more amazing worlds (the latest of which is called Ashan and serves as the setting of all of Ubisoft’s Might & Magic® games) to live epic adventure with their teams of fearless raiders and adventurers. But soon, role-players weren’t the only ones to spend hours on Might & Magic® games anymore…

The depth of its fantasy setting & the consistency of its universe permitted, with complementary and exciting different gameplays, to offer unique experiences for all tastes. One of them particularly stood out in the heart of gamers: the Might and Magic® Heroes saga.
