Heroes of Might and Magic Online has plunged into closed beta. You can take part by swishing like a wizard over to the official website.

Heroes of Might and Magic Online is made by TQ Digital and harks back to the days of HOMMIII. The onus is on brainy battles and inching fantasy creatures around a grid in a chess-like manner.

There are eight factions to choose from, and you develop forces from puny to powerful by gathering resources, crushing foes and expanding castles.

Heroes of Might and Magic Online will even work on old - really old - PCs.

TQ Digital runs other online games Conquer Online, Eudemons Online, The Warlords and Zero Online.
