The first developer diary for Might and Magic Heroes 6 has been released, shedding light on the game's Stronghold faction. Or, if you prefer the shorthand: Orcs. There's a lot of backstory in the video, so allow us to sum up. Orcs are big, strong, angry and ugly. Yeah, we know, pretty shocking.
The Might and Magic Heroes 6 adventure starts 400 years before the events in Heroes of Might and Magic 5, showcasing a family of heroes in a thrilling, epic story where Angels plot to revive an unfinished war.
A legendary Archangel general killed during the war of the Elder races returns to life with a vengeance. Under the cover of preparations for an upcoming Demon invasion, he unites the peoples of Ashan to eradicate his ancient enemies. However, he underestimates the power of the all too human dynasty of the Griffin Dukes.
