This week’s Humble Weekly Bundle offers so much Might & Magic it’s practically heroic.
Okay, enough puns. I’m guessing you know how these things work by now, so let’s get straight on with talking about the tiers.
$1 USD or more gets you a DRM-free copy of Heroes of Might & Magic 2: Gold Edition; Uplay keys for Heroes of Might & Magic 4: Complete Edition, the first six Might & Magic games, and a beta key for Might & Magic Heroes 7; and a key for the Angel Starter Pack of Might & Magic Heroes Online.
Paying more than the average (which is $8.36 USD at the time of writing) adds in Uplay keys for Heroes of Might & Magic 5 (with the Hammers of Fate and Tribes of the East expansions) and the Might & Magic Heroes 6 Gold Edition; Steam keys for Dark Messiah of Might & Magic and Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes (plus I Am the Boss DLC); and a DRM-free copy of the original Heroes of Might & Magic.
The highest tier demands you pay $10 USD or more. This chucks in a Steam key for Heroes of Might & Magic 3 HD Edition, a Uplay key for Might & Magic 10: Legacy and its The Falcon & The Unicorn DLC, a Uplay key for Might & Magic Heroes 6‘s Shades of Darkness expansion, and a starter pack for Might & Magic Duel of Champions.
That was incredibly confusing and long-winded, so here’s a big long list of what you get if you pay $10, with a vague attempt at sorting it out into each individual series.
- Might & Magic 1-6 (Uplay)
- Might & Magic 10: Legacy plus The Falcon and the Unicorn DLC (Uplay)
- Heroes of Might & Magic (DRM free)
- Heroes of Might & Magic 2: Gold Edition (DRM free)
- Heroes of Might & Magic 3: HD Edition (Steam)
- Heroes of Might & Magic 4: Complete Edition (Uplay)
- Heroes of Might & Magic 5 plus Hammers of Fate DLC and Tribes of the East expansion (Uplay)
- Might & Magic Heroes 6: Gold Edition plus Shades of Darkness expansion (Uplay)
- Might & Magic Heroes 7 beta key
- Dark Messiah of Might & Magic (Steam)
- Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes plus I Am the Boss DLC (Steam)
- Might & Magic Duel of Champions Starter Pack
- Might & Magic Heroes Online Angel Starter Pack
I think that’s everything, and I think they’re all with the right distribution channels. Apologies if I’ve muffed that up; it’s a bit confusing.
Anyway! For $10, I’d say this Humble Weekly Bundle is a pretty good deal. Pretty much everything in there is decent in some way or another – a few of the Might & Magic and Heroes of Might & Magic (or Might & Magic Heroes or whatever they’re calling it now) games are a little bit rough, but most of them are gold. Dark Messiah is a largely fun romp, Clash of Heroes is a great puzzle game, and… I have absolutely no opinion on Duel of Champions or Heroes Online, actually. I haven’t played Duel of Champions in a long time and I’ve never touched Heroes Online.
Oh, and the included Might & Magic Heroes 7 beta will run from 26 August to 2 September, so it essentially runs for a week starting next Wednesday.
