Steam just put this on the store with a release date of 5/24/11. I've been a big fan of the HoMM series since I played the demo of HoMM2 on a PC Gamer CD a ways back when and hope this next installment won't just be a rehash of the same old stuff. As someone who hasn't played a multiplayer match on any of these games, I'm hoping the AI will actually be good this time instead of just sending 5 heroes with measly armies all over the map. I haven't read much about the new game, but from looking at some of the screenshots, it seems to be very faithful to the series in how it is presented artistically. This is a fantasy world on steroids, where knights in shining armor, wizards, necromancers, demons, troglodytes, orcs and goblins are all present and cannot seem to cohabitate peacefully. Anyone else but me not burnt out on this series yet?
