||Might and Magic
In the first campaign of three new ones in this expansion pack for Heroes of Might and Magic V, you control Freyda as she struggles with a civil war in the Grphyon Empire. After that you move to the icy mountains in the north, which the dwarfs call their home.
They are the new playable race in Hammers of Fate and bring along a new kind of city called Fortress. Since dwarfs do not know anything about mana and all that fancy stuff all the other races use to cast spells, there is also a new kind of magic called Rune Magic. It uses resources instead of mana to cast powerful spells upon enemies. Dwarfs also have their own set of units like the vicious bear riders and rune priests.
The expansion adds new artifacts, new neutral monsters like mummies and manticores, new map objects and several new skirmish and multiplayer maps. It also reintroduces the Caravan feature, known from Heroes of Might and Magic IV, which allows you to transport units over the map without a hero in the group. In multiplayer matches the simultaneous turn-based mode makes a return. It allows all players on a map to move their units without waiting for the other players during a turn.
- New faction: Introducing the brand-new Dwarves faction, made up of heroic warriors and rune magic adepts who stalk Ashan's deepest mountains and most hostile regions.
- A brand-new adventure: Featuring 15 new missions, new heroes, and improved cut-scenes, the new campaign will lead players even deeper into the dramatic events that began with Heroes of Might and Magic(r) V.
- Extended game experience: Includes a wealth of new spells and abilities, five new single-player maps, 10 new multiplayer maps, new buildings, new artifacts, and new neutral creatures, Heroes of Might and Magic V: Hammers of Fate gives players the tools to develop new tactics, and further their game experience both online and offline.
- Improved mechanics and gameplay: Thanks to new features such as caravans and a random map generator, players will enjoy unlimited replayability and an even smoother gameplay experience. In addition, the simultaneous turn feature will speed up online games.
