Ubi's Dark Messiah

Might & Magic sequel conjured.

For those who enjoyed PC role-playing game Legends of Might & Magic (don’t all rush at once, now) Ubisoft is trying again with another in the franchise with sequel Dark Messiah.

Following up 2001's first-person title, the PC bound Dark Messiah of Might & Magic will run off Valve's Source Engine, the same tool used for Half-Life 2. French developer Arkane Studios will be tackling the job, having worked previously on 2002's first-person RPG, Arx Fatalis. Which we thought was quite decent.

Dark Messiah of Might & Magic should be released around mid to late 2006, with Ubisoft showcasing the title at the Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany, on August 17th.
