Heroes back, in the form of MMO

It seems there is a trend for classic video games to have their online versions. So when I heard Heroes of Might and Magic Online has started its beta in China, I didn’t feel surprised.

 

Heroes series was my obsession for several years of my gaming life. Remembering HOMM 1 on my dad’s 386 – that was pretty awesome! I was sooo looking forward to when they made it into a 3D game, like with 3d graphics and landscapes (Heroes IV), but it turns out that I hated it. I’m not surprised that 3DO went bankrupt with that one.

When the Heroes V tried to revived my interest, it was almost too late. My time was fully occupied by different kinds of online games, so I didn’t even pick it up.

HOMM 3 was the best, always has been. So anyway, now I hear there’s going to be an online version of it – staying true to the original HOMM 3 (creatures are all there, kindof 2D and 3D blend). I’m going to give it a go and applying for a beta key now, as I think that’s what they should be doing –having a remake of number 3 seems like the smartest move I’ve ever heard from the Heroes people. You think so?

Check out the Heroes Online display at this convention and the models… mmmm… eye candy – Heroes Online in Chinajoy 2008.

I wonder if it is going to be a real time MMO or a turn based web game. Any more details on this?

 YES! At long last they make my favorite game of all-time into an online game! I still play heroes 3 to this very day, and I bought it the day it came out. It has always been #1 and now it's gonna be online :D
