The Fantasy Art of Dark Messiah of Might and Magic - Heroes of Might and Magic V Map

In Dark Messiah, the world of Heroes of Might and Magic V, Ashan, is greatly expanded beyond the strategic view of a turn-based strategy game into a fully realized and highly interactive 3D world. The fantasy game art is much more detailed and realistic than the cartoony look of Heroes of Might and Magic V, and the possibilities of how to interact and exploit the environment were one of the main features of the game.

The Might and Magic series of games is divided into the turn-based strategy game series, Heroes of Might and Magic; and the first-person role-playing game series, Might and Magic. Typically a Might and Magic role-playing game is released to tell a different story related to the campaigns in the corresponding Heroes of Might and Magic game.

If you install Heroes of Might and Magic V: Tribes of the East on a PC that also has Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, you can play a special Heroes V map that walks through the story in Dark Messiah. Below are two of the early cutscenes, corresponding to Chapter 1 and Chapter 2.

Without the context from having played Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, however, the map makes little sense. Also, as it draws from Tribes of the East game assets, many things will not have translated exactly. For example, there is no undead cyclops in Heroes of Might and Magic V, and in the Heroes V map of Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, the necromancer who besieges Stonehelm has at his command three "Yeti" that act just like cyclopeses.
