In Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, players are introduced to the world of Ashan, a dark and unforgiving world, scarred by a bloody history and threatened by an apocalyptic prophecy: the Dark Messiah. Both Kuju (multiplayer), and Arkane (singleplayer) are working on a new patch to address various bugs, adding CTF mode, new maps, and ramping up difficulty.

Discover a new breed of action game powered by an enhanced version of Valve’s Half Life 2 Source engine. Set in the Might & Magic universe, players will experience ferocious combat in a dark and immersive fantasy environment. Become an expert warrior, mage or assassin, using a vast array of devastating weapons, against huge and vicious creatures in a deep and captivating fantasy.

  • Global difficulty has been adjusted in the second half of the game to better reflect character evolution
  • An intermediary texture details level has been implemented. As a result, the former “high” setting has been renamed to “very high”
