The high-definition remaster of Heroes of Might & Magic III was released a few days ago, updating the much beloved classic for modern systems. Unfortunately, it’s an average product and has copped a lambasting from fans, with a little over half of the Steam đánh giá being positive. There’s another option though, one that’s been available for a while, if you want khổng lồ enjoy HoMM III in impressive detail: grab the original and apply the HD mod.

If you’re keen for some multiplayer action, then the Steam version does have something going for it — integration with Valve’s online services. However, if you’re willing khổng lồ get your hands a smidge dirty & you want lớn play solo (or use the original’s multiplayer capabilities), then modding is the way to go.

The first step is to get the game. The “mangago.vnplete” edition is available on GOG for a paltry $13 (Australian dollars) & includes the Armageddon’s Blade and The Shadow of Death expansions. I should chú ý the HD mod isn’t mangago.vnpatible with Armageddon’s Blade, but that’s not so bad — the Steam version has no expansions at all & costs $US16.95.
