About This Game

The adventure in Heroes VI, starting 400 years before events in Heroes V, catapults a family of heroes into a fast-paced epic story where Angels plot to end -- once and for all -- an unfinished war with their ancient rivals, the Faceless.

A legendary Archangel General is resurrected, but with his powers crippled. Plagued by horrible memories of the Elder Wars, he plots to recover his powers and take control of Ashan while destroying both Faceless and Demons in a series of carefully orchestrated attacks and betrayals. He underestimates, however, the power of the all-too-human Griffin dynasty.

The destiny of these Griffin heroes will be determined by our players.

For the following reasons, avoid this game at all costs:

1- It's a single player game that requires you to always be online.
2- Steam is not enough, you have to register and log int Ubisoft's Uplay
3- Ubisoft's Uplay is a piece of garbage. It NEVER works. Thus, you are UNABLE to acess your game.
4- Don't even bother to contact Uplay's customer support. They don't bother to answer.
5- By the way, Ubisoft NEVER FINISHED THE GAME, and by the looks of it, they never will.

As you can see from my records, I did manage to play this game for a while. The game itself is not bad, though it's dlc is buggy and unfinished. The big problem here is the uplay thing, as it will prevent you from enjoying yor game.

This game is crippled by always on DRM. The game booted me back to the menu while in the middle of a battle. My internet connection didn't drop, just their DRM servers. I would have thought by now (over 3 YEARS after release!) Ubisoft would have removed this broken and draconian DRM system, but it appears not.

Even after Ubisoft said they have abandoned always on DRM back in 2012 in favour of a one-time activation, it looks like they didn't bother to patch it out of their older games - even after 3 years!

DO NOT BUY.

I Ignored the warnings about Uplay and Ubisoft because i am an unconditional fan of the series, i own Heroes 1 till 5, and i´ve been playing since i was a kid, so i couldn´t resist.
But Uplay faked me up and decided to fall down when i was registering the game, and now it wont register, i want my money back Uplay sucks, Ubisoft sucks, I WILL NEVER AGAIN BUY A UPLAY GAME, NEVER!!
Good luck to you guys who choose to ignore these warnings like i did, give you money to these thieves and make them millionaires with your hard earned money.

PD: Ever since I installed the Ubisoft launcher my computer is messed up, internet keeps falling, steam keeps hanging up, i have to reset my router every 10 minutes. I recuperated a safety copy on my PC just before I installed this crap, and now 2curiously2 everything works fine. NEVER INSTALL UBISOFT MALAWARE.

The game relies on the "UPlay launcher" which, unfortunately, doesn't work (it loses saved games and crashes randomly).

Avoid.

If Uplay is your problem and you want it to work just:
1. Uninstall the Uplay version Steam installs by going to: Add Remove programs > Uplay.
2. Go to Ubisoft.
3. Register an account there online and download the latest Uplay.
4. Sign in and start the game from Steam.

This worked for me when I was first met by "Uplay Not responding",
hope it works for you!

Gl hf! :)
