Ubisoft announces new first-person RPG in the Might & Magic series

Ubisoft has announced a new game in the Might & Magic series, titled Might & Magic X Legacy. The game has been developed by Limbic Entertainment and is set to be a new RPG. The game is set to be the first in the first-person RPG series after the abysmal Might & Magic IX was released more than a decade ago.

The story of the Might & Magic games take place in the same world as that of the Heroes games. This one in particular will follow the events of Might & Magic Heroes VI. In the wake of the events in Might & Magic Heroes VI, you will play in a party of four adventurers entangled in intrigue and political machinations unfolding in and around Karthal.  The city, on the verge of secession, is prey to competing factions vying for its control.  Your actions will determine the fate of the city. 

Might & Magic X Legacy is an authentic solo experience in the classic first-person RPG genre. Create and lead your group into an exciting world and battle powerful mythical creatures while collecting ancient magical treasures. 

The game will feature a turn-based combat system. Essentially, the game will still be following most of the gameplay formula of the Heroes games but with changes made in it so that it will appeal to a wider audience.

The Might & Magic series is finally getting a long-awaited sequel!

Might & Magic is a series of first-person RPGs taking place in a well-established fantasy world. The first game, released in 1987, was the first serious contender to the Wizardry and Ultima games among RPG fans. The series has always been widely praised for having a nice world to explore along with science fiction trappings under the surface of an otherwise typical fantasy RPG.

The ending of the games have traditionally revolved around ancient creatures being responsible for most of what goes on in the world, and the primary antagonist invariably ends up being either a robot or an alien. The Might & Magic games brought to light that the Devils from the Heroes games are actually aliens.

The first game was especially praised because it was one of the few games in its times to have a non-linear plot. The action of the first two games were set on flat, square worlds orbiting in space, whereas the third game moved the setting to a round planet. Might & Magic IV and V were set on another flat platform dubbed XEEN, with V being set on the dark underside of XEEN.

The main villain of these games has been Sheltem—a planetary guardian that was constructed by ancients. He is defeated in V, thus bringing the whole plot arc to an end.
