Limbic Entertainment's Might and Magic X: Legacy will launch on January 23, publisher Ubisoft has announced. The game will be available for PC, through both digital distribution and retail channels in Europe; in North America, it'll only be available as a download.
Rather than follow the events of Might and Magic IX, Might and Magic X: Legacy is the direct sequel to Might and Magic Heroes VI, set in the world of Ashan. The turn-based first-person role-playing game has been in Early Access on Steam since August and utilizes a class-based system for its characters.
Update: Ubisoft has amended its announcement to note that the game will launch on January 24 for the UK, but will still see a January 23 release for the rest of Europe.
London, UK- December 18th 2013 - Today, Ubisoft announced that Might & Magic® X - Legacy will be released on January 23rd for PC in both digital and retail editions. After a very successful Open Development phase that started this August, with Early Access to Act 1 for all players pre-purchasing the Deluxe Edition, the game will be fully available through both retail and digital channels.
The development team at Limbic Entertainment would like to thank the very active Might & Magic® community for its help to make Might & Magic® X – Legacy the best game possible. The Open Development phase allowed the development team to share its passion for the Might & Magic® franchise by gathering feedback from fans, which in turn has influenced the game's features and final quality. Might & Magic® X – Legacy is developed by Limbic Entertainment, an independent game development studio based in Germany and has been a third party developer for Ubisoft for almost four years.
Might & Magic® X - Legacy is an authentic solo experience in the classic first-person RPG genre, with a turn-based gameplay system. By creating and leading a group of adventurers in and around the exciting city of Karthal, by battling powerful mythical creatures while collecting ancient magical treasures, players will determine the fate of the Agyn Peninsula.
