Product Update - Valve
Hello Heroes,

Tonight many updates are going to be released.

First of all, Might & Magic Heroes 6 Pirates of the Savage Sea is going to be released tonight by 7 pm CET.
This Adventure Pack will introduce original heroes, mythical places and artifacts, familiars with over 10 hours of gameplay! You can find more information about the content here (www.mmh6.com).
Might & Magic Heroes 6 Pirates of the Savage Sea will be available on Steam, Uplay and other local sites.

That's not all as the patch 1.5 will be released tonight by 7pm CET as well. As we have already announced and showed, the patch 1.5 will bring brand new town screens to Heroes VI (…): they are now full 2D screens and fully animated. We really suggest you to check them out ingame!
This time we also focused on the balancing: to accomplish such a tremendous task, we gathered a lot of your feedback (thank you for sharing with us your thoughts and analysis!) and worked closely with the VIP fans. Today you can test the first results. As Limbic confirms (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWj1XVFo9Bw), it is not the last balance update. We will monitor closely how it works and bring changes if needed in the next patches. You can still share your ideas and thoughts with us on the official or community forums as your help is very appreciated by the dev team!

The last and the very awaited change we promised you to bring to Heroes 6 in the patch 1.5 is compatibility of online and offline saves. Unfortunately, this change will not be a part of the patch 1.5 and will be released later on. This last minute change is due to unexpected technical constrains that force us to go back a bit to the drawing board regarding our approach. The plan is to develop this feature as intended but will require a few more weeks of fine tuning before getting a proper release. We are really sorry about that. We are aware that you are eagerly waiting for this update and how important it is for you and we’ll do our best to release it shortly.
Regarding the latest Uplay update and related issues with users' saves: saves may have temporarily disappeared from your folder "\Documents\Might & Magic Heroes VI". The issue is currently under investigation on our side and we are closely monitoring the situation with the Uplay team in order to sort this out as soon as possible. In the meantime and while waiting for the patch 1.5 and the Adventure Pack to be released tonight by 7 pm, let’s have a look at the release notes:

The gate remains on the combat map and can be destroyed. If the gate is destroyed the stack can only return after the combat. Will not increase stacks above their original maximum.

Product Release - Valve
Might & Magic Heroes VI - Pirates of the Savage Sea Adventure Pack DLC, a new expansion for Might & Magic Heroes VI, is now available on Steam!

In the year following the events of Might & Magic® Heroes® VI, several ships disappeared in the Savage Sea during a sudden and mysterious storm. Normally, that wouldn’t be so surprising – these waters are known to be dangerous and unforgiving – but their captains were particularly experienced seafarers.

The Pirate Council hired the legendary pirate, Crag Hack, to find out what happened. Crag Hack has been it all: mercenary, barbarian and pirate... It is time for this legendary hero to be called out of retirement and embark on a new and perilous adventure!
