Who is behind this website?

We are the Might & Magic® team, a tasty mix of Limbic Entertainement and Ubisoft team members who will keep you up to date of all development details and answer your questions. We will of course take the time to introduce ourselves in near future.


What is the story behind the Shadow Council?

In order to make the experience even more enjoyable and prepare ourselves to enter little by little into the experience of Might & Magic® Heroes VII, we decided to create not only a website. Indeed, you are now part of the Shadow Council, a mysterious assembly where heroes from all Ashan provinces are monitoring Ivan actions and trying to influence its decision. To do so, the council is chaired by the so-called Spy Master

Shadow Council articles will be splitted between the two tones:
  • Factual tone for all development related information
  • Role play tone for all universe and story articles.

What is the Shadow Council influence on the game?

Votes are a key feature of the Shadow Council and will offer a real impact on the game experience of Might & Magic® Heroes VII. Starting today, you have the possibility to vote for one of the main elements of any Might & Magic® Heroes game: the factions!

That’s not all; there are still many decisions to make where your inputs will make the difference. We don’t want to spoil your surprise but we strongly recommend you to check this website regularly to make sure you don’t miss anything!
