Since the new Might&Magic X has been announced, many old fans has wondered if the Arcomage will be in the new game?

Is it even possible? Does Ubi have the rights to do so? And what do you guys think about it?

Hopefully Arcomage is in M&M X. I still load M&M 7 just to play a couple of Arcomage every week or so.

I hope they include it that was a great game within a game, one of the best I've ever seen. Anything that makes you want to boot up a game just to play a minigame in it is quality stuff.

I would buy an Arcomage iOS or Android app if one existed . . .

They should add Acromage not only because it's great and brings back good memories but also because MMX is going to be rather short (25h).

Heck YES I would LOVE to see Arcomage return in MMX! At one point GOG put a poll for what new game you'd like to see standalone, and Arcomage was on it! Only myself and 5 others voted it for it! It was a travesty! At one point Arcomage was sold standalone, but it had the most draconian, invasive DRM on it ever (around the year 2000 this was). It make current UBI DRM look gentle and kind.

Anyway, if you want to make this happen, I'd e-mail Limbic directly. Ubisoft is probably too big to listen.

If you would buy an Android app and you like Arcomage you must try Amber Route (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=pl.mobilewings.amberroute). Another game is Archmage (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.freecode).

nice, thanks!

Can't believe Archmage even uses the exact same images for the cards.... gotta be some copywrite issues with that game...

That's a good point. Not that I'm necessarily a fan of filler-for-the-sake-of-filler, but Arcomage definitely seems like a must-have.

might and magic X related questions really need to be in the might and magic X forum and not here.
but ill try to answer.
the devs response to this was they they are finishing the game first then putting the extra stuff (which is what arcomage is,extras)in, but it probably won't happen.
ill link to my reasons why arcomage will not be in.

in short arcomage has become archmage, arcomage itself cannot exist because the very settings of games 6-8(and possibly the previous games) was destroyed in one of the heroes games, this was done intentionally as 3do/nwc knew it was on the way down and wanted to give the games a dramatic sendoff.
when 3do went down, they took NWC and all of the lore with them.
archmage is available for download on android enabled devices, and bases itself a lot on arcomage like a son of the game really lol.(which itself wasn't made by nwc but simply bought by 3DO who had no idea what to do with it as it seemed to short for commercial release or something)
so yeah, arcomage will NOT be in it. archmage however maybe, who knows? as the devs said they are working on the game itself first and the extras later.
also bear in mind arcomage never affected the game in any way and did not appear until 7, save for 8 when it gave you a special weapon. as a result it will most likely not be in X, since they are focusing only on the first 5 games, having said that though it is the most requested feature as the android game archmage has had little to no advertisment and does not exist on the IOS store. which seems dumb to be perfectly honest but whatever.

I have moved your thread to the correct forum.

If nothing else, we need Arcomage for two reasons: the mystic tie-in with other M&M games, and the 100,000 gold quest for winning a game in all the taverns.

Limbic has already explicitly stated that Arcomage will not be in the game.

But really it should have been a no-brainer. Limbic is doing great in a lot of areas, but they really fall short when it comes to all the "little things" of the M&M games that profoundly affected their replay value and addictiveness. Arcomage, inventory management, miscellaneous skills like Alchemy (not just combat-related skills), etc. I fear MMX will be a fun game to play once.

Seriously Limbic if you're paying attention, I would gladly wait an extra month for the release if it meant Arcomage was coming back.
