Never one to do things by halves, Ubisoft has announced a brand new, standalone expansion for Might & Magic Heroes VI – and confirmed that Shades of Darkness will be arriving exclusively on Windows PC on February 28th, 2013.
The news is short and sweet: A new faction has stepped up – Dungeon, lead by the Dark Elves, who have left the forests of Irollan and made a pact with the mysterious Faceless. The fan-favourite Dark Elves have escaped extermination, become underground renegades, and are now renowned stealthy assassins. Their quest takes gamers on an epic campaign through unexplored territories of Ashan.
But wait! There are two new campaigns added to the game, which does not require the original Might & Magic Heroes VI to play. If you’d prefer though, you can always pick up the Might & Magic Heroes VI Complete Edition, which features an enhanced version of the original game, plus all bonus maps and items, the original soundtrack, adventure packs and – of course – a copy of Shades of Darkness.
…and if you’re a little bit interested in checking out the adventures of familiar hero Raelag, may I entice you further? The whole shebang will be available Day One, February 28th, at the same time as the expansion.
