If you felt a bit burned by the initial buggy release of Elemental War of Magic
the folks at Stardock have good news for you. Not only are they working on a patch to fix all the issues with the game they are going to be giving away the first two expansion packs for the game to everyone who purchased the game by October 31st.
Stardock hasn't released details on the patch (which will go into beta testing in November) or what will be in the expansion packs but if it's anything like what we saw for Galactic Civilization II
gamers are in for a good deal of high quality content.
The big question now is if you can trust Stardock to deliver the goods on the patch. Personally I look at Stardock as one of the really good independent game companies who just hit a major bump. They've learned from their mistakes and they are taking action
to fix the game and their image with gamers. You can purchase the game online via Impulse
, their digital distribution center.

Elemental: War of Magic opens a world of magic and ancient lore as players begin the game as one of the few beings in the world still able to channel power from shards of magic – a series of mystical artifacts left over from a great cataclysm. You must decide how much of your power to imbue into your heroes as you build cities, explore dungeons, learn spells of ever-increasing power and negotiate with friends and foes.
