Heroes of Might and Magic III is a turn-based strategic war game, set up in a classical role-playing game Environment. It involves capturing and developing towns, gathering resources, assembling armies and sending them into combat. Each town has a theme and can only raise the type of creatures appropriate to that theme. The resources (gold, wood, ore, gems, crystal, mercury, and sulfur) can be found mostly in mines and are gathered once a day. They are used to build new buildings in your towns, to improve existing buildings, to buy armies, etc. Each army is led by a hero and consists of up to seven stacks of creatures raised in towns or recruited in countryside. The armies are sent into tactical combat, which can occur either in countryside or in towns. If the attacker captures the town, the winner can recruit the creatures raised in that town afterwards.

This game has been remastered in HD!

Fifteen years later, rediscover the epic tale of Queen Catherine Ironfist, as she re-embarks on her critically acclaimed quest to unite her ravaged homeland and re-conquer the kingdom of Erathia. New features include:

  • Old mods and expansions: will not work with the new HD edition
  • A new HD experience: re-live the Heroes III in HD, a true craftsmanship which offers players updated graphics, with wide screen compatibility.
  • Enjoy the critically acclaimed Heroes III gameplay, with 7 exciting campaign scenarios, around 50 skirmish maps, a local multiplayer mode and a map editor.
  • A new online multiplayer lobby: Now Steamworks compatible, Heroes III offers an online multiplayer lobby, where you can share your experience with the Heroes III community.

We spent some time on creating and polishing a new character.
We decided that Beholder should be the first creature with a mana pool. It uses it's points for almost every attack and skill it has. You can stun your enemies, shoot your laser eye, and use some other shocking abilities.
Besides, we've fixed some minor bugs, and improved a general mobility and reaction time for some of the moves.

The range of tactics has increased greatly. We're proud of the differences between fighters, and the amount of adjustment you need to make after you change a character :)

Character description:

Beholder is different than other characters (no point in duplicating the builds, eh?) It’s a lightning type mage, it can shoot, fight in close combat very well and has a special ability to spam a bunch of lightnings. However he’s slow, easy to kill and needs mana to perform almost any action.

Mana works similarly to lizardman’s arrows. It slowly regenerates, however, so beholder is never armless and without any option to make a comeback. You need to plan your attacks carefully, adequately to your current mana pool and always have an emergency plan.

Another unique trait of beholder is an ability to shock his opponent with lightnings, causing multiple “stun” effects.

Attack, power attack, blok, deflection (counterattack) – as usually
Shooting – similarly to lizardman, just use you special skill key instead of attack key.
Crawling bolts (lightnings) – hit block + special key.


The next thing we would like (love) to see and add is a beat'em up mode, for one/two players vs multiple AI creatures. :O!

Help us the mod grow!

(Check the FILES section for ver 1.1 download)
The .rar is a standalone (you still need the original HoMM3 data files. Read the mod description or readme.txt file if your'e new with the mod), although you can just unpack it over the previous version.

I own all Homm titles except the last installment ( 6 ). My all time favorites are Homm 2, 3 and 5. I have the greatest memmories with Homm 2 and the 4 maps Beltway, Broken Alliance, Seven Lakes and Full House. I liked the camapaigns a lot in Homm 3 and 5 well 5 i like because it is 5. Anyway i do not care for graphix cause all of them are greate 2D and 3D.

Nice that i found this remake of the map beltway. Now to find Broken allaince (Seven Lakes i have it) - Full House working on a remake :D

Any success with the maps? They could come in handy very much in terms of The Succession Wars Mod for HMMIII, which is currently featured on ModDB.

this game is classic my childhood favourite game

This game was released when there were no kids to scream for fancy graphics and arcade shooters. This game was all we needed back then. Oh, the memories <3

This is not YouTube but, thumbs up if you think that "Heroes III" is the best of the "Heroes" series !

Sorry man, I have to give it to Heroes 5. Great graphics meets great gameplay. The only flaw in that game is the waiting time between turns.

Heroes III is amazing, don't get me wrong. But it gets boring after a while since the graphics and gameplay are repetitive.

Wait a minute. There are a few mods in development for this game, right? i remember seeing one that was a total conversion being worked on by a russian speaking team, but i can't find it anymore.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+4 votes

I know only the "Wake of Gods" mod, but I don't really know of that is still going.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+4 votes

Welp, they are going pretty nice, version .59 is in development. There'll be a brand new castle, new creatures and twise more blackjack and hookers than in previous versions.
There are also Phoenix mod (DEAD) and Horn of Abyss (AWESOME).

They all will be awesome but they're being developed for a long long time i started to loose patience like everybody else
