'Might & Magic Showdown' Shutting Down

by Rainier on July 17, 2017 @ 3:29 p.m. PDT

Might & Magic Showdown is a tactical PvP combat experience, set in the rich medieval fantasy universe of Might & Magic.

Might & Magic: Showdown is a tactical PvP arena combat experience where you command a team of customizable miniature heroes and creatures to overcome your opponent by mixing strategic planning and real-time action in quick, bite-sized sessions.

In Might & Magic Showdown, players will test their tactical battle skills while combining a mix of pre-planning and real-time execution.

Players will discover a set of innovative features, including the ability to pre-program character actions before the battle, as well as being able to create detailed, personalized figurines with the in-game Paint Workshop tool. Might & Magic Showdown also offers tons of content to support those innovative features: 60 solo battles to sharpen your tactics, a cast of 20 unique figurines to paint and personalize and a full-blown PvP mode.

Announced earlier this year, and in early access for only a few few months, Ubisoft has decided to shut down the game servers on July 31, 2017 (thanks bluesnews).

Hello Heroes,

We regret to announce that Might & Magic SHOWDOWN will be shutting down on July 31, 2017, ending our Early Access period and ceasing server support. As a result, the game will be inaccessible after this date.

We wish to convey our sincerest gratitude to you, our dedicated players, who have helped us navigate the management of an Early Access campaign – because of you, we have learned a great deal about how best to serve you and we hope to carry these learnings forward into future Ubisoft projects.

We also owe a very special debt of gratitude to our Might & Magic fans who accepted this new take on the universe. It has been our pleasure and honor to deal with one of gaming’s longest lived communities.

Effective immediately, Might & Magic SHOWDOWN will be removed from the Steam Store to prevent further purchase of the Early Access license. The game will remain in your Steam Library, but server support will end on July 31, 2017 and the game itself will become inoperable. In an effort to ensure that we abide by our players’ expectations of the Early Access model, we will be offering full refunds to players who feel they are owed them until July 31, 2017.

Thank you Heroes.
The Might & Magic SHOWDOWN team

In addition to the release of Might & Magic Showdown, players have a chance to try the Might & Magic Showdown Paint Workshop for free on Steam right now. Available separately, it includes five unique figurines from the full game for you to paint the way you want to.
