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!
