Ubisoft wasted no time in getting the crowd's attention at Gamescom today. Along with new footage from Assassin's Creed Rogue and a new Xbox 360 announcement for The Crew, the publisher also announced the return of Might & Magic Heroes, this time in a 7th rendition.

Might & Magic Heroes 7 will be developed by Limbic Entertainment, and will have players fighting back against an evil force that has managed to rip apart the Holy Empire. Only with the help of the Shadow Council will you be able to put things back the way they were.

Ubisoft wants fans to contribute to the game's development, sounding off on which other factions they want to see in the game besides the Shadow Council. They can submit their suggestions on the game's official website.

The skirmish, duel and hotseat multiplayer modes will make a return, along with the Haven and Necropolis factions. There's no word yet on the others, but they should be announced over the next few weeks.

Might & Magic Heroes 7 will arrive on PC in 2015.

      Huge fan of these games over the years. They've gone up and down in quality, but generally they are still a lot of fun. I think I'll hold my breath for this one, hope it is awesome.

        Yea, this series is like pizza. Even when it's bad, it is still pretty good.

      Enjoyed 2, 3, and 5, but absolutely hated 4 and 6. I really with this wasn't in Ubisoft's possession.

          Agreed! 2 was easily the best of the series, each one has been lesser than the last. 6 was total garbage.

          Its very simple what they need to do...

          Make lots of maps like you used to.. not 10, not 20, not 40, but 100 at least - duh!
          Include Multi-player, allow teams, and provide plenty of maps for each kind. (2v6, 3v3, 1v4, 12v4, 1v1v1, 2v2v2, 3v5v2, etc.)
          Include hotseat, LAN, and Internet server connection.
          Bring back zounds! Bring back large maps! Nothing more disappointing than small maps and only 30 or 40 units on a map. HOMM used to be about vast armies taking over vast areas of the map, conquering entire nations, some missions taking days and days of online play and session being saved. Now it is a sad, hollow, former shadow of itself. Pathetic.

          Honestly, even if they only just upgraded the HOMM2 graphics with the new graphics engine, they'd pretty much have a hit on their hands. messing with the hero system, the magic level attainment, and all the other nonsense over the past decade just make you want to hang your head and cry.

      Wasn't this originally called Heroes of Might and Magic? I played 2, it was enjoyable back in the day.

        Heroes of Might & Magic up to 5, then Ubisoft decided that consumers were retarded and that "Might & Magic" should be in front in order to enforce the brand. Hence, Might & Magic Heroes.

      Both 2 & 3 are amazing games. A lot of hours played in those...some of my best memories with my cousin playing them co-op.

      I skipped the last couple but I'll keep an eye on this. Like everyone else I feel like the series peaked at 2-3
