Dark Messiah of Might and Magic

Ubisoft has released some beastly new screens from its upcoming first-person fantasy Dark Messiah of Might and Magic. Turns out that many of the monsters have their own complex relationships - while securing their freedom, Orcs discovered and attempted to train the Paokai dragons with only rumored success; and Necromancers pretty much control the Zombies and Ghouls at will - not to mention the enormous Undead Cyclops. Not all your enemies are quite so inhuman: City Guards go after anybody they perceive as a threat, while Black Guards will kill you for the highest bidder.

Check the screens and study your prey. You'll be able to meet and beat these bad guys yourself in just a few more days - Dark Messiah ships this month.
