This WSI file will create a Wrapper and install Might and Magic V Bundle into that Wrapper. The GOG.com bundle version is tested and DRM free. So this version is advised to use (not the Steam version). The expansion Tribes of the East has its own installer. You can find that game in the Porting Kit as well. When you don’t own the Windows game yet, then the WSI file will supply you the link to the game page where you can purchase this Windows game. Click “Download” to download and create the Wrapper. For questions and help check the Help/FAQ tab in the Porting Kit.

Heroes of Might and Magic 5 is a turn-based strategy game in which you can build cities and besiege them, train troops and slaughter them, and explore new lands – and crush them under your iron heel. You directly command your armies on the battlefield and aid them with your character’s abilities as well as your own strategy skills. With six unique factions to choose from, each with its own set of buildings and creatures, Heroes of Might and Magic 5 provides gamers with the strategy and detailed graphics that the series has been known for.
