Some prophecies of doom do come true. Escape the flames licking at your back and jump quickly through a portal into another world, for only the bold will be allowed to live. Embrace a wondrous new land and uncover its ancient mysteries. Battle its deadly creatures and explore a forgotten past. Here lie gods who have been silent all too long. Here lies a realm that can only be claimed by the strong, the crafty or the wise. Here lies a realm awaiting a bold conqueror!
Unlike previous games, where they had little active role in combat, heroes became present on the battlefield with their troops. It is possible to have armies with more than one hero, or with no heroes at all, although armies without a hero are incapable of performing certain tasks, such as capturing enemy towns or structures.
Both the adventure and combat maps were converted to fixed-view isometric 3D display.
The traditional hexagon-based battle grid was converted into a much higher-resolution square-based grid, making it easier to feature units of different sizes.
Non-hero spellcasting units were given proper spell selections
Includes Heroes of Might and Magic 4 and its expansions: The Gathering Storm and Winds of War.
A lot of innovations in terms of gameplay, such as caravans or heroes participating in battles.
