Opening Cutscene: Top Half is missing
I just bought this game on steam recently. When i start the game up the opening cinematic starts to play. However, it is split in half: I can see a portion of the cinematic on the lower half of my screen. The top half is completely blank. The gameplay portion seems to work fine. But i'm only able to see half of the cinematics on my computer screen. Has anyone experienced a similar issue? If so were you able to fix it? Thanks.
I am using a computer with a GTX 480 graphics card.
I have the same issue as well and i also bought the game via steam.
Have you contacted support?
If not, Please do - remember to send them a detailed DXDiag output from the PC you are using to play the game:

EDIT: Found the solution from the bug thread (don't know, why it didn't come up with the search). Just uninstall this patch:

Thanks for noticing - we're going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon. Click here to go back to the home page."
Edit: I have the complete edition retail (no steam), if that matters.

Did you try removing the Windows hotfix? It breaks the video codec used by Heroes VI. Worked like a charm for me.
I'm afraid I'm not very tech savy Slendo82. I read the article you linked, but it doesn't tell you how to remove the patch.
Any chance of a guide?
Control panel -> Programs -> Programs and features -> Click "View installed updates" on the left. Then find the one that has KB2803821 mentioned in the name. Right click that and uninstall. Reboot and you're ready to go. Hope that helps.
