This time around the story from the land of might and magic revolves around the necromancer named Sandro, who cunningly manipulates four heroes for his own gain. Yog the barbarian and Gelu the elf are sure that by helping Sandro they will achieve the fame they have always dreamed about. The motivations of Crag, another barbarian, are much simpler – gold, while Gem, who just recently got back from the war of succession in Erathia, seeks to free himself from the ghosts of his fallen comrades. With the help of the abovementioned heroes, Sandro hopes to combine two powerful artifacts, thanks to which he will rule the world. Only those four adventurers can stop the necromancer from destroying the lands of Erathia and AvLee.

  • The Shadow of Death, apart from new campaigns and single missions, also comes with the original Heroes of Might & Magic III. The biggest news is the possibility of creating so-called superartifacts that grant incredible powers. The expansion also introduces new heroes and units.
