So do they raid the might and magic, or?
Ostensibly because one is the loneliest number, Ubisoft went ahead and announced two different Might & Magic games at this year’s Gamescom. The first, Might & Magic Heroes Online, we covered yesterday. And now that a brand new day has dawned, let’s talk Might & Magic Raiders.
Sorry, Oakland, this game has nothing to do with your beloved team. A fantasy game featuring real football teams would be pretty fantastic, though. Might & Magic Raiders is a free-to-play action RPG that’s playable within a downloadable client for PC. Players can choose from four different character classes, team up with friends, and set out on a magical journey filled with malevolent demons and grandiose bosses.
The game is set just before the events of Might & Magic Heroes VI, and players will be in charge of defending “Hammerfall” by way of speedy 20-minute scrimmages with the aid of their friends. It sounds like a lot to handle, but anything is possible when you have friends. Unless, of course, your friends are jerks and think it’s funny to ruin any chance you have of beating a game.
A release date hasn’t been announced just yet, but you can sign up for a private beta over on its homepage. There’s no guarantee you’ll get in, but the FAQ states that they’ll be inviting more and more people to join in closer to the game’s release.
