Honestly I don't see anything worth salvaging from Heroes at this point. The brand has nothing going for it any more. Gameplay has peaked in three and any attempts to shake up the formula failed so far. So one might as well stick to playing Heroes 2, 3 or 5 for that. There's not even any interesting lore left which could warrant another game. Ashan is a horribly dull setting. So the brand is left with gameplay that can't evolve in a stock fantasy setting. I guess they could hit the reboot button again. Make Heroes 8 in a different setting with the gameplay more similar to Heroes 4.
