game release date for PC:
Might & Magic X is the tenth installment in the legendary series of RPGs. Nine previous games were developed by the no longer existing studio, New World Computing. After the closure of the studio, Ubisoft acquired the rights to the series, and Limbic Entertainment was contracted to develop the next game.
The game set in a world full of magic, Ashan, which was also the setting for the Heroes of Might & Magic V, Dark Messiah of Might & Magic, Might & Magic Heroes VI and a number of casual and browser-based games. It is a fantasy world inhabited by both humans and a number of other sentient races. The conflict between angels and demons is the main theme in this installment of the series. After the events of Might & Magic Heroes IV, a team of adventurers arrive at the shores of Sorpigals.
Might & Magic X mechanics are much like those of the predecessors. The developers were particularly inspired by World of Xeen containing the fourth and fifth part of M&M. A team of four moves in an open world divided into squares. Any movement forward, backwards, or sideways moves the team to a neighboring square. This solution is similar to the one used in the old dungeon crawlers in which the character movement was performed by leaps and bounds. Each transition takes time, thanks to what the game was implemented with a day-and-night-cycle system. Time flows differently depending on the place: slower in cities and dungeons, faster during normal exploration of the world.
In case of an enemy encounter the time is divided into turns in which the characters take turns in order to move, attack, cast spells, and so on.
