Heroes VI servers will be shut down on Jaunary 2024
UbiSoft announced that the servers for Might & Magic: Heroes VI (and other old games) will be shut down January 25, 2024 and unlike past Heroes of Might and Magic games this one has a lot of features specifically tied to Conflux or rather online servers.
The game will not even launch unless you force it into offline mode by using command prompts. The bigger issue is the game has a ton of solo player features locked to online mode including simply stuff as viewing the games bestiary and creature descriptions.
The same thing that happened to Might & Magic X: Legacy, but worse. If you think that server decommission affect only multiplayer then you are wrong. Most functionalities are locked behind online-only DRM:
- Conflux and Dynasty profile will no longer work
- Bestiary with artworks and lore descriptions will be unavailable.
- Amount of heroes in skirmish will be limited to 2 per faction
- Dynasty weapons and pets will be no longer available
- All swords and Staves will dissappear from the game
- Option to level up then will dissappear
- People who leveled all of them to level 5 will lost all progress
- Dynasty traits and slots for them will be disabled. Those are a starting conditions like additional resources at the beginning, reduced cost of building, bonus stats etc.
- Achievements will be disabled. For doing achievements you would receive point which are used for unlocking stuff in this game: heroes, weapons, pets, traits, slots, portraits, titles etc.
- Multiplayer will be no longer available
- You will loose your online saves
- Game forces you to cloud saving and limited you to 10 saves…
