Platform and installing:

The whole modification is created by reverse-engineering Shadow of Death files. So, Horn of the Abyss is to be installed on top of clean Heroes III: SoD or Complete edition.

We do not guarantee stable work on any “optimized builds” or with mods that can change original game files (except for HD mod, which is 100% compatible). Install to a folder with either clean SoD or Complete or older version of Horn of the Abyss.

Core Horn of the Abyss features:

  • New fully playable town — Cove
  • New war machine — Cannon. Available at Cove’s Blacksmith
  • New artifacts and artifact sets
