Might and Magic: Heroes 5.5 - Big Fan-made Expansion Gets New Version

The powerful mod Might & Magic: Heroes 5.5 has received a new version. The most important change is the addition of support for single player campaigns, so they received all the improvements and new mechanics offered by this project.

Ubisoft is not spoiling fans of Heroes. The latest, seventh, installment of the series was released in 2015, and it doesn't look like we're going to get another one anytime soon.. However, the gap is successfully filled by fans. The most recent example of this is the new version of the mod called Heroes 5.5 for Heroes of Might and Magic V: Tribes of the East.

The new version is labeled RC16b and we have been waiting a long time for it. For the past two years, the developers have regularly released new test versions, but their problem was that these did not support campaigns. So those who wanted to play them had to stay with the RC13 version from early 2020. Now this has finally changed and the mod supports campaigns again.
