Hi Guys!

Have żou already seen an official Statement wether or not there will be map Editor (that will be as easy to use as lets say the HOMM3 map Editor) coming with the game? I've used the search Funktion of the Forum and didnt come up with something conclusive.

The closest thing to an official statement I can find is the Community Q&A (https://mmh7.ubi.com/en/blog/post/view/community-q-a-our-answers-p1) from January. The good news is, that's a very clear answer:

"6. Will there be a map editor for Heroes VII?
Yes, and more. It is too early for us to share all information on this topic but we are constantly improving our tools and already started to test them with selected M&M VIPs :). Our goal is to provide accessible tools that everybody could use to create maps in a few minutes but also many options and features for power users."

So, yes, there will be a map editor and yes, it will be easy to use.

There's also this from Part 2:

"6. What was the hardest part of this development?
We think that this question should be answered regarding two aspects:

Philosophy: with Heroes VII, we really wanted to offer the best of Heroes experience, focusing on core gameplay strength of the series. To do so, our Game Designers spent months and months to identify what would be for H7 this magical recipe and how to really implement it in the game.

Technology: definitely it would be the map editor. We have as any Heroes fans, huge expectations for this tool and we did our best to follow this vision. In addition to a great Heroes experience, the map editor is the one key to make the game live longer and longer."
