Default Might & Magic X - Your Questions Our Answers

July 23rd, 2013, 13:40
Limbic Entertainment has answered some questions that were asked for Might & Magic X on it's open development blog.

Hi all,

Thank you very much for all your feedback and comments on our recent blog postings! There have been quite some questions, too and today Id like to present you some answers to them!

What about releasing on GOG?

Well definitely start releasing on Uplay and on Steam. If and where else the game might be released, is not yet defined / I am not able to tell right now.

I also miss the old "softskills" like disarm trap, identify item, perception, identify monster, alchemy. To be honest I am afraid this game will lose something which was very important for me in the old M&M Games: complexity.

I understand that. However you might be pleasantly surprised, that you might find several of the old mechanics in a similar form but in a different way within MMX. This Open Dev Blog is still quite new and in the beginning we started introducing the project and the team etc. and only recently we started describing some of the game play mechanics. So there are still a lot more game mechanics and rules that well reveal on the blog more in detail! As I just mentioned in my previous answer, there will still be a possibility to earn more gold even if there is no merchant skill (i.e. with the Negotiator as a hireling) and you will still be able to disarm traps (which will be depending on your attributes in might, magic and perception), just to mention a few.

Besides the skills, there will be spells, there will be Hirelings, and there will be blessings, artifacts etc. pp. Stay tuned for more info to follow on the blog soon!

Do you guys (Limbic devs) think paper dolls can be added in a MMX patch, or FREE DLC after its initial release?

To be honest, a possible DLC and possible content therein has not yet been planned and will depend on your guys feedback!

However as some other users already mentioned, its quite some effort to implement paper dolls just think of all the art that would need to be produced, for the characters themselves and for each and every equipment part (besides the technical mechanic implementation). So in the end I could imagine that priorities (time/budget) will also be taken into account, when looking at your guys feedback and that gameplay mechanics and game content will also play a big role, in comparison to paper dolls.

Presumably, by "paper dolls" they mean mannequins that display the current armor as as in Ultima Underworld. Don't think this really adds much to the figure outline with icons used in many other games.

Well, that's pretty much confirmation that UPlay is required. I honestly have such a backlog that I think I'll wait on this until they push it out on GoG.

Yup, if it requires Uplay I'll be waiting for another way to play it. Way to alienate gamers yet again in the M&M series.

Hopefully not! They said, "Well definitely start releasing on Uplay and on Steam" (emphasis mine). I'm holding onto hope that the Steam version does not require any other DRM scheme (namely, UPlay).

Many of Steam's other Ubisoft titles, such as M&M6, require UPlay in addition to Steam. I doubt it will be any different for this title on Steam. I'd love to be proven wrong - UPlay is a hassle.

Other examples of Ubisoft Steam titles with Uplay required:
FarCry 3
Assassin's Creed 3
Dawn of Discovery

Yeah I'd like to think it won't require uplay, but I think that's a fantasy wish. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Crap on a crapstick. That sucks! I'll wait for a possible GoG version, then…
