Trailer certainly looked much better than I would have expected.

Who's the developer again?

I certainly didn't see that one coming!

Now all I need to know in order to get fairly hyped is:
- Will there be a "Fly" spell?
- Can we swap between TB and RT combat like in MM6-8?

If both are a yes, consider me excited.

the trailer looks promising indeed.but i'm a little bit worried about this "new rules" at the end of it.i don't have a problem with games evolving but the last years "new rules" usually means simplified in order to be more appealing to a larger crowd.in any case if the elements that made M&M famous like the large variety of items,promotion quests,no lvl cap etc are here too than this can be a really good game and a very nice surprise for all of the old fans.

That trailer almost gave me chills. Dear God, I hope the game is really like it is represented in the trailer!

The webpage is up and there are currently 3 screenshots which look pretty lovely!

The screenshots are devoid of UI elements though.

Agree - all the artwork shown so far looks outstanding for this kind of game with just the right balance between realism and painterly styles. And it's quite reminiscent of earlier M&Ms too.

Back when I was originally playing Ultima 7 Serpent's Isle I was never able to finish it because I always ran into a bug that prevented me from continuing the game after a certain point. I was never able to get any further until modern times with Exult.

PS. I hope this is half as good and M&M 3-5 since at that it would make it one of my most favorite games of all time. I just wish they would have done this a few years ago and put Arkane on it.

It's been awhile since i played MM6 and MM7, so i may not remember. But, those games weren't step rpg's were they? I didn't think they were.

Welp, when it rains, it pours. Where were you old-school games hiding the last 10 years?

The Might & Magic games from 6 on weren't step based games and instead were free roaming with both Turn-Based and Realtime combat systems.

To a degree 'old school' is a bit over done this year. I worry it might become over saturated. Having said this I wouldn't mind an updated wizardry 8.

Might and Magic 2 is also my favorite. I played it for like a full year. Still have the book and disks for M&M1. The graph paper is in my closet somewhere . I am off to the Inner Sanctum.

To a large extent what is meant by "old school" is just a return to more strategic, less action oriented gameplay. There will still be enough ARPGs, FPSs, platformers and somewhat interactive movies, to keep fans of those genres happy, I reckon.

For those wanting to cap their enthusiasm, just remember that we've heard a very similar pitch before—that game was called MM9.

I worry that the game will crumble under the expectations. Think of how long MM6 and MM7 were. For that matter, by today's standards MM8 would be considered a long game. Assuming that Ubi and Limbic don't screw up the gameplay formula too badly (not a sure bet by any means), what are the odds that they also give us a coherent 60-80 hours of content?

High hopes and all, but there's just so many ways for them to screw this up.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

I'm with you Maylander, but if it is step-based I don't see a fly spell forthcoming. But I'm still excited and maybe the next Might & Magic game will be like mm6-8. And considering there was "NO" Might and Magic game on the horizon as little as 3 days ago . . . consider me stunned.
