Following the events of Heroes Chronicles: The Sword of Frost, Gelu, the leader of AvLee's Forest Guard and wielder of Armageddon's Blade, attacks Kilgor, the Barbarian King of Krewlod, in an attempt to claim and destroy the Sword of Frost. As foretold by a prophecy, when Armageddon's Blade and the Sword of Frost clash in battle, the result is a massive explosion (known as the Reckoning), which destroys the world of Enroth. Many of the inhabitants of the planet, however, manage to escape through mysterious portals that appear during the Reckoning which lead them to another world, called Axeoth - also the setting for Might and Magic IX. Included among the refugees are many of the heroes of previous installments of the series, and many return to their old ways shortly after arriving on their new home.

More info about town conversion here:

New abilities for creatures

Positive Morale (Minotaurs): This creature's morale can't get lower than +2. It is also immune to Sorrow and Despair spells.

Corruption (Venom Spawns): This creature's attack reduces target HP by 25% and applied healing or resurrecting effects by 75%.

Tactical retreat (Nomads): This creature can retreat from battlefield together with your heroes or on their own.

Gate Destroyer (Behemoths): This creature deals full damage to the castle gates.

Strikes and shoots twice (Gargantuans).

Invulnerable (Zombies): Creature resurrects loses at the start of its turn (power of resurrection = 10% of current stack HP).

Changed adventure map movement formula

Creatures with low movement were useless not only in combat, but also on adventure map because they slow down your army. Fast creatures on the contrary make your army significantly faster, so after playing Heroes 4 for a while you start ignoring creatures like trolls, earth elementals etc.

Enhancement Mod changes adventure movement formula to reduce difference between slow and fast creatures: maximum movement limit remains the same of 30, but minimum increased from 12 up to 20!

New adventure objects

Diamond of Purity: Allows to redistribute all skill points of hero who picks this gem.

Onyx of Change: Allows to redistribute all skill points of hero who picks this gem, but hero retains basic levels of primary skills.

Phylactery Forge: Grants visiting heroes Immortality.

Fountain of Venom: Grants visiting heroes Poison Attack for one battle.

Fountain of Bless: Grants visiting heroes Bless for one battle.

Sparkling Fountain: Reduces cost of visiting heroes spells by 2 for one battle.

EM 1.2 also supports objects from H4 Object Package by Karmakeld and Equilibris 3.55 (including artifacts). It's more than 200 new objects!


Lots of bug fixes and QOL improvements to make Heroes 4 even better.
