The first expansion CD for Heroes of Might and Magic IV offers six hero campaigns, more than 20 maps, 16 additional artifacts, four new creatures (Goblin Knight, Evil Sorceress, Gargantuan, and Dark Champion) with unique characteristics, and a multiplayer update. Each of the first five campaigns features a new specialty hero, including the dark priest Alita Eventide, archmage Bohb, wizard Kozuss, barbarian Dogwoggle, and bard Agraynel. All five join forces in the sixth, climactic campaign against the demented, evil wizard Hexis.
The five individual hero campaigns include Another Bard's Tale (search for artifacts of wit and skill), The Masters of Magic (reunite five magical items), Opposites Attract (search for artifacts of chaos and order), A Matter of Life and Death (recover two powerful cult items), and Might Makes Right (find the fabled Armor of the Tiger). In the final campaign, The Gathering Storm, the heroes use their individual, hard-earned, skills, magic, attributes, and weapons in a confrontation with Hexis. Seven new adventure map locations include five conservatories (Chaos, Nature, Death, Life and Order) and two combat arenas (Coliseums of Might and Magic).
Heroes of Might and Magic IV: The Gathering Storm features an upgraded editor, which allows full access to new heroes, adventure objects, artifacts and creatures. A new music soundtrack is also included. This expansion requires installation of the original Heroes of Might and Magic IV. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
