Whatever happened to all of the heroes? A near quarter century after the old men of punk rock asked that same question, we have the answer - 3DO have the monopoly!

Developed by California-based New World Computing, Heroes IV combines an enhanced game engine that retains the classic gameplay of its predecessors. There’s a new hero in town: are you ready to face your greatest challenge yet?

When a cataclysm destroys Erathia, Emilia Nighthaven loses everything. Orphaned and alone in this strange new world, she organises the frightened survivors and teaches them to defend themselves against those who prey on the weak. But then the Immortal King Magnus appears and demands that she give up the throne of the kingdom she founded. Not only does he have the merciless Dragon Golems at his disposal, but also a device capable of controlling the minds of those who dare approach him.

How can Emilia defend her kingdom against that kind of power? Soon, her friends unwittingly become her enemies. Once again, she is truly alone. Now go, bold hero, before it’s too late.

Like its predecessors, Heroes of Might and Magic IV features highly detailed fantasy worlds in a battle for territory and resources. But there’s more to this fourth instalment than meets the eye. This latest release features an all-new Height-Map Terrain Editor that allows players to create their own graphically accomplished levels. Heroes IV’s random scenario and map generator ensures that no two games will be played the same way. Players command armies comprised of skilful heroes and fantasy creatures, with which you must collect vital resources and artefacts, as well as battling enemies and capturing and conquering towns. Strategic planning and tactical skills are essential to become the undisputed ruler of this all new world.
