The new standalone expansion for Might & Magic Heroes VI, Shades of Darkness, has launched for PC. The download-only release is available on Ubisoft’s UPlay store and Steam. Shades of Darkness brings back Raelag, introduced in Heroes V, and the Dungeon faction. The two included campaigns, set centuries after Heroes VI, follow The Dark Elves and the Necromancers. Raelag must unify the Dark Elves before they descend into civil war, and the vampire Vein needs to find a cure for the Necromancers’ queen before she dies from a magical disease. A new portal has launched online to coincide with the release, offering additional insight into the history, mythology, and characters of the universe.
Might & Magic Heroes VI Shades of Darkness is available for $29.99. Gamers who missed out on the original release can pick up the new Might & Magic Heroes VI Complete Edition for $49.99. The set includes the original release, all of the bonus maps and items, and two adventure DLC packs.
