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.

Advanced Classes Mod 1.06

The new version is ready. I have not much to say, initially I wanted to stop the development of the mod after the 1.05 version but I still receive so much positive feedback that keeps me motivated:

Haven't played WOG since 2010 and even though i felt a bit conservative at first (i thought these changes would be too "abrupt" and would destroy the game for what it is) - i actually love it in whole!

Thanks to everyone who helps in keeping the HOMM spirit alive!

EDIT (update after +50 hours of gameplay):


The new leveling up system both for the skills and the spells is awesome and makes the grind feel very rewarding.
I have to admit, the old-style gameplay got pretty boring especially on XL maps, but with this mod, you can still grind 8 hours on the same map and still feel like you want more. AWESOMELY done!

The AI is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G because of the numerous difficulty options. It always felt either too easy or too hard for me with the "default" options, but now there is sooooo much versatility that it finally satisfies me in full!

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 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 !

Reply Good karma Bad karma+19 votes

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.
