The town screen was replaced with a town window which has a 2D animated view of your town that will update as buildings are added, although not all buildings will have an impact on the town window. Also you won't be able to interact with the town window.

Now that does suck. I think town building was my favorite part.

The only thing I know of is that they've removed the pretty town screen that you had in previous HoMMs.

Bah, it's maybe a small thing, but that's a bummer.

HoMM 2 is my favorite. HoMM 5 is right behind it.

i'm in the beta and a fan of HOMM. VI is good and worth buying _IF_ you liked V. It is more like V than anything else.

I liked 3, but I disliked 4. I never tried 5. Would I like 6?

the big changes are:

1. resource strategies have been simplified, which I think was a mistake, but not a dealbreaker.

2. the town screen is a step backward: with lots of icons and a GUI that is too fiddly. Someone should be fired for doing that.

3. The combat is as excellent as ever -- deep and multi-layered. Very pretty game if you have a PC that can run it at High.

4. the wonky camera in V is sorta fixed, but only because you now use a fixed camera angle. It is better than V.

The only thing I know of is that they've removed the pretty town screen that you had in previous HoMMs. There's quite the uproar over that. While that isn't much of a detriment to the gameplay, I suspect it'll impact the immersiveness of the game.

The town screen was replaced with a town window which has a 2D animated view of your town that will update as buildings are added, although not all buildings will have an impact on the town window. Also you won't be able to interact with the town window.

Is that a serious question? 6 Games and loads of expansions later and the gameplay has barely changed much. Chances are if you like the HOMM series, it's because of the gameplay.

I worry about them pulling a DoW2 or C&C and changing a bunch of shit to make the game "more accessible". We'd probably have heard about it by now though if that had happened.

Let's see...

Ubisoft + established game series + trailer^(trailer) = The DRM will be ridiculous.

Also, way to ripoff Return of the King for this CGI?

Better not be as bug ridden as Heroes 5.

Oh don't worry. I'm sure the pirates will be playing it without a problem just like usual.

I hate teaser trailers... Just a great example of what I don't enjoy about the entertainment industries...

At first I thought it was a blueper (am I coining that or has it been done before? Instead of blooper), but I guess the franchise hasna slightly modified name? HOMM has worked, but will MMH's?

Anyone in the beta care to comment on the gameplay? Is it worth $60?
