We first reported on Might & Magic Heroes: Era of Chaos from Ubisoft earlier this month when it was put up for pre-registration on both Google Play and the App Store. Now, at long last, the game has officially launched. As you can probably expect from its title, the story of this one is set in the same universe as the legendary strategy game Heroes of Might & Magic. Meanwhile, in terms of gameplay, it strives to deliver a layered strategy experience that has been designed specifically with mobile in mind. Check out the game’s trailer below:
The basic draw here is that you’ll get to build a mighty army with many iconic characters from the Might & Magic franchise. Currently, Might & Magic Heroes: Era of Chaos offers 9 different modes to try out, and the combat will allegedly require you to analyze the battlefield thoroughly. You'll organize your units and tactically position them in advantageous locations on the field before the action actually kicks off.
Every unit type and hero belongs to a different faction, from humans to demons to undead. Naturally, understanding the strengths and weaknesses of each faction will be a crucial part of the game.
The single-player campaign sees you following Queen Catherine Ironfist on her quest to restore order to the fantasy kingdom of Erathia. Then there’s the Trial of Angels to challenge yourself with. This is a multi-floor arena of increasing difficulty, and the higher you can climb, the more rewards you’ll get.
For those who are into multiplayer, a guild system is available as well, allowing you to join forces with other players. If you want, you can join a Guild to participate in Guild Wars.
All things considered, Era of Chaos is looking like another solid offering from Ubisoft. You can get it right now for free from Google Play or the App Store to see what it has to offer.
