As we all remember, the game Heroes of Annihilated Empires was conceived as part of the trilogy of the same name, dedicated to the adventures of the elf-tracker named Elkhant. However, after the successful release of the first part, the Heroes of the Annihilated Empires 2 never came out.
Почему не вышли Герои Уничтоженных Империй 2?
Why did this happen? After all, the game turned out to be quite interesting from the point of view of the symbiosis of RTS and RPG. But as we remember, the game was released in 2006 year. Then, just a year later, STALKER appeared: The Shadow of Chernobyl, which became just a cult game and a visiting card of the developer company GSC Game World. Further, in 2008 and 2009 came full-fledged additions - Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat. It is clear that Stalker at times more popular and he became a priority in the development of games. But then 2012 year all died down on the development of the second Stalker.
And just recently the company started its work again and released a remake of the old Cossacks, which meant playing on nostalgia. At this point, the chances of creating Heroes of Annihilated Empires 2 were more than ever. But as I wrote recently, it all ended trite: GSC again starts working on a new Stalker. So you can wait a very long time, or never wait.
I think it was the script that prevented the release of the second and third part of the Heroes of the Destroyed Empires. The author's book (Ilya Novak), which formed the basis of the plot of the game, ends at the end of the campaign, that is, the final battle of the elves and the undead. And in general, many consider the books of this author, unremarkable and boring, full of questionable ideas. And besides, the game came out with an emphasis on multiplayer, with a minimum number of cards for a single game, although in 2006 year many did not have access to the Internet. It is also worth noting that the strategic component turned out to be primitive, the tactic in which lies in the formula "came up, shot, went to undergo treatment".
So, seeing such a dose of criticism, GSC Game World did not dare to release Heroes of Annihilated Empires 2 and 3.
Heroes of Annihilated Empires 2 Magic in the Blood
This is the second story book, which describes the background, which led to the beginning of the plot of the game.
Warm, Cold, Mechanical and Dead magic came together in the final battle.
There are four of them - the supreme magicians who run the Magical Workshops. One went to distant lands to hide the great Crown of the World, and the second pursues him to take possession of the Crown and revive the Empire. The third tries to break into the depths of the mountain, where there is a mysterious spell that can change the fate of Aquadora, but the fourth wants to prevent him ... because everyone craves power and does not want to share it with anyone.
However, in addition to the hosts of witch guilds, there are other people, perhaps not so powerful, but also aspiring to their goal. A former logger, now a fighter of monsters, a former servant of a magician, now a thief and a murderer ... A dwarf who saves his people from total annihilation, the captain of a terrible ghost ship, a warrior from the northern clan, a dog demon, the daughter of an arcmaster of the guild of gunsmiths, trying to save himself and his dying father ... And all of them are Heroes of the Annihilated Empire.
