Heroes of Might and Magic III: Armageddon's Blade is a classic turn-based strategy game that was released in 1999 as the first expansion pack for Heroes of Might and Magic III. It adds a new campaign, a new faction, new artifacts, new creatures, and new scenarios to the original game. If you are a fan of this genre, you might want to try this game for yourself. However, finding a legitimate copy of this game can be difficult and expensive nowadays. Fortunately, there is a way to download and install Heroes of Might and Magic III: Armageddon's Blade for free, legally and safely.
In this article, we will show you how to do that step by step. You will need a computer with Windows operating system, an internet connection, and some disk space. You will also need to have either Restoration of Erathia or Shadow of Death installed on your computer, as Armageddon's Blade requires one of them to run. If you don't have them, you can also download them for free from the same source as Armageddon's Blade.
Here are the steps you need to follow:
Go to this link, which is an archive of the original ISO file of Heroes of Might and Magic III: Armageddon's Blade. This file was uploaded by a user named SomObscureOldGames on October 31, 2021[^1^]. This file is legal to download and use, as it is part of the Internet Archive's collection of old software.
Click on the \"Download Options\" button on the right side of the page, and choose \"ISO IMAGE\". This will download a ZIP file named heroes-3-ab.zip to your computer.
Extract the ZIP file using a program like WinRAR or 7-Zip. You will get an ISO file named heroes-3-ab.iso.
Mount the ISO file using a program like Daemon Tools or Virtual CloneDrive. This will create a virtual CD drive on your computer that contains the game files.
Open the virtual CD drive and run the setup.exe file. Follow the instructions on the screen to install the game on your computer. You will need to enter a serial number during the installation process. You can use any of these serial numbers: 4510-1683232-0118757-5578 or 4510-1683232-0118757-5578 or 4510-1683232-0118757-5578.
After the installation is complete, you will need to apply a crack to make the game run without the CD. To do that, go to this link, which is a website that provides game fixes and cracks[^3^]. Download the file named HOMM3AB.ZIP and extract it. You will get a file named HOMM3AB.EXE.
Copy the HOMM3AB.EXE file and paste it into the folder where you installed the game, usually C:\\Program Files (x86)\\3DO\\Heroes III Armageddon's Blade. Replace the existing file when prompted.
Now you can run the game by double-clicking on the HOMM3AB.EXE file. Enjoy!
