Heroes of Might and Magic 3 Board Game It's More Likely Than You Think

Developer and publisher Ubisoft has announced that legendary turn-based strategy Heroes of Might and Magic 3 is getting a board game edition. If you had always dreamed of restoring Erathia alongside Catherine Ironfist in a tabletop campaign, Archon Studios has your back! The gameplay will combine world-exploring that uses hexagonal map tiles and the chess-like battle system representing the classic battlefields the series is known for.

The core game will feature three iconic Towns to choose from: Inferno (demons), Castle (humans) and a yet to be announced faction, each featuring two heroes to play as alongside the faction’s creatures. The game will come with over 30 detailed miniatures, including famous heroes like, ‘Catherine Ironfist’ and  ‘Xeron’, as well as iconic creatures like Archangels, infamous Devils, and all-time classic Dragons.

“In Poland, this game was one of the most iconic games we played. Basically, every kid in the late 90’s played the Heroes’ games, and we are crazy happy to turn our childhood love into a miniatures-based board game,” says Jarosław Ewertowski, CEO of Archon Studio. “Working on this license is like being a teenager again, but this time, we are the authors, and tons of fans from all over the world are looking at us with great expectations regarding the quality.”

“Although 33 years old, Heroes of Might & Magic III is still the most played game in the Might & Magic series, with a very passionate and dedicated community.   We are confident that the Heroes III legacy is in very good hands with Archon Studio, not only are they one of the top specialists of miniature board games in the world, but more importantly they are authentic fans of the original game. I can’t wait to see the world of Erathia, its iconic heroes,  fantastic creatures and strategic battles come to life with superbly detailed 3D miniatures!” says Eric Damian-Vernet, Brand Director and Might & Magic IP team lead at Ubisoft .

The Kickstarter campaign is scheduled to kick off in November 2022. Stay tuned to find out more!
