Might & Magic X: Legacy Released

The next January of Incline release, coming right on the heels of Blackguards, is another title produced in Germany - Limbic Entertainment's completely unexpected (and unexpectedly faithful) sequel to the Might and Magic franchise, Might & Magic X: Legacy.

If you've been following the news about this game, then you probably know all about the story of how it came to be, so I won't repeat that here. Instead, I'd like to talk a bit about what Might & Magic X means.

Over the years, many great RPG developers have found mainstream success by leaving their hardcore roots behind and producing watered down consolized action-RPGs instead. And every time that has happened, they've been begged to take just a fraction of those big profits and use it to develop a hardcore RPG to make their old fans happy. The answer is always the same: "We can't make those kinds of games anymore. The world has moved on. Computer roleplaying games are just not contemporary."

Well, as of today, that bullshit has finally been exposed for what it is. The year is 2014 and we are playing a turn-based blobber RPG produced by one of the largest game publishers in the world. Julien Pirou has laid waste to the misconceptions of an entire industry, and for that he should be regarded as a hero of the RPG genre. Might & Magic X: Legacy is available now, on Steam or directly from Uplay, for the low price of $25.
