Heroes of Might and Magic V is a turn-based strategy video game fully rendered in 3D and the game art features classic fantasy creatures in an epic world setting. The story arc is covered in the original Heroes of Might and Magic V game and two expansions, Hammers of Fate and Tribes of the East. A significant sidestory is explored in greater detail in the first-person fantasy role-playing video game Dark Messiah of Might and Magic.
Heroes of Might and Magic V took the best elements of Heroes IV and combined it with the popular world and combat interface of Heroes III. There are many familiar units and abilities from previous games, but the world setting was redone and for fantasy art inspiration, they appeared to have drawn considerably from the popular Games Workshop table-top war game WarHammer Fantasy. Many classic mythological creatures are featured throughout the game and in beautifully detailed variations. In general, heroes suffer from being extremely muscular and with very fat hands -- a trait also seen in SpellForce 2.
