Heroes of Might and Magic 3, Zeus, Pharaoh, Age of Wonders, and other strategies 50% off!

We know that you like to be in charge. We know that you like that feeling of power and the constant pressure of one life-and-death decision after another. Whether you are in the battlefield, commanding your troops, in a warlord's tent deciding the life and death of your subjects, or in a city hall, placing miniature buildings on a map--you flourish. Leadership is your element. Knowing that, we prepared a Superb Strategy Promo to cater to your tastes. Or rather: to nourish that ever-present hunger for power that you have. Let's take a look at two of the games on this weekend's offer, shall we?

Many people consider Heroes of Might and Magic 3 to be the best instalment in the greatest fantasy turn-based strategy series. The conquest of Erathia is still taking place on thousands of computers worldwide, as the game remains universally popular among strategy gamers. Billions of hours worth of collective playtime were, and still are, being put in this title, both in single-player campaigns and multi-player struggles. We offer you the Complete Edition of the game, containing the Armageddon's Blade and The Shadow of Death expansions, for only $4.99.

If you enjoy the turn-based mechanics of the HoMM series, but you would like to immerse yourself even deeper in a complex and extensive gameworld, don't miss Eador: Genesis. When we originally released this Russian masterpiece, we said that the single-player campaign can take up to 200 hours to beat. Our colleague from the support team, who knows the game by heart came asking later how did we come up with such a number. We told him, that 200 hours is the expected playtime stated by the developer. "Must have been a speedrun"--our friend commented, and we believe him (GOG.com support is known to be trustworthy, afterall). So brace yourselves--for only $2.99 you'll get more than 200 hours of playtime.

But that's only scratching the surface of our weekend promo! There are many more games to challenge your leadership skills on the Superb Strategy promo page, so go ahead and check them out now! The offer lasts until Tuesday, March 12, at 4:59AM GMT.

As usual, below you'll find a new episode of This Week on GOG, a short video guide to recent events, promos, and other happenings on the site. By the way, if you haven't already, you might want to follow the GOG.com channel on Youtube, so you won't miss our shows, specials, and exclusive trailers.

jamyskis: "Eador: Genesis"

Did that just magically appear? I had no idea it was on the website...

Great opportunity to pick it up (and KoDP, which I've been eyeing for a while).
Where you been, sucka?

teshra: for you Age of Wonders fans, if I can only get one, which one of the three is the one you'd strongly recommend? Thank you.
The "third" one Shadow Magic. Got the features of 2 plus more.
What would you compare King of Dragon Pass to?

In England, without an internet connection at that particular time, judging by the release date.

tajemniczybeton: What would you compare King of Dragon Pass to?
Closest thing so far is Zafehouse Diaries, though it's best to say Zafehouse was inspired by KoDP. Not sure if there is any other game like it actually.
Worth it though, but be prepared for a lot of reading, and a lot of failed games until you manage to get it right.
Highly recommend both King of Dragon Pass and Eador: Genesis. Both awesome games.

I'm in the process of finishing Broken Sword 2 (should be done in about 3 hours) and I promised myself, once I'd finished it and if anything came up in the GOG sale, I'd grab one (backlog still fricking huge so I just can't justify more than one right now), so I'll be picking up Age of Wonders -- wanted that for a while.

Thanks GOG.

Fair enough.
Heroes of Might and Magic 3, King of Dragon Pass, Eador and Zeus are all must-buys.

Fixed, thanks :)
Classic release could be Shivers (by Sierra On-Line). Played it as a kid, would love to play it again ;-)
I'm curious, there's a new revision of Eador being released soon. Will it arrive here or "being upgraded" or offered as a separate download in case you own this Eador?

gandalf.nho: Thinking in get Eador: Genesis, how is the difficulty?

teshra: Has a bit of a learning curve, and pretty much all the documentation you find online is in Russian, but once you get the hang of it, its very fun. My 2 cents.

G-Doc: The game is said to be tough as nails. Russian nails, mind you.
Thanks for the answers

A new game actually. So we'll probably have the option to buy either one, and hopefully a bundle option as well.
