Interview met Nival Interactive over add-on voor Heroes of Might and Magic V

Heroes of Might and Magic V is nog maar een paar maanden geleden uitgekomen en er komt al weer een add-on aan. De add-on zal de naam Heroes of Might and Magic V: Hammers of Fate dragen. In een interview gaf ontwikkelaar Nival Interactive wat informatie vrij over de add-on:

    Q: What are the main abilities of this new faction?

    FC: Dwarves will have a specific magic school, the rune magic. They are the only ones who can access and use it. They have runes on themselves or on their equipment. The rune mage (the dwarven hero) commanding the army can activate these runes by spending resources (not mana). So you will have to be careful of choosing the right moment to activate them and not waste resources! Runes will have various effects such as allowing a unit to attack twice or to dispel any negative spell effects.

    Q: What kinds of units will be available to the dwarven faction? Can you give us more details on 1 or 2 creatures?

    FC: Here are a few details on one nice unit, the Berserker. It’s basically a storm of flesh and armour and pointy bits. It may be a dwarf storm, but not one you would like to encounter! It’s a melee fighter with very powerful offence and immunity to mind control. They can also charge the enemy for improved damage, but at the expense of all defence.

    Q: Where does the add-on take place in Ashan? Will we have new environments?

    FC: Yes, from the screenshots released you see that the dwarves there are situated in a new, snowy environment. They mostly live in the mountains north of the Griffin Empire, a fact that was already guessed by the people who looked closely at the Ashan map provided in some game editions?. The add-on scenario will bring you there and also underground to settle a few accounts the dwarves have with some of their neighbours.

Als je Heroes of Might and Magic V al had uitgespeeld is dit goed nieuws. In de add-on zitten een aantal nieuwe neutrale monsters waaronder Wolven, Mummies en Manticores. Ook zijn er 10 nieuwe scenario’s speelbaar, 3 nieuwe campaigns van elk 5 levels en er zijn 14 nieuwe voorwerpen beschikbaar. Verder zit er nog een scenario editor bij om zelf je level in elkaar te knutselen.

Heroes of Might and Magic V: Hammers of Fate zal in november beschikbaar zijn.
