Ubisoft has announced that the latest iteration in the seminal fantasy strategy series, Might & Magic Heroes 6, will get a closed beta starting up on June 28. The announcement trailer for the beta is posted after the break and, as you can see, it features plenty of updated mechanics and gameplay systems, new graphics, and lots of strategy nerdery to geek out with.

Pre-ordering the game early will get you access into the beta, which means you'll get to see both single- and multiplayer content before the game arrives in stores on September 8.
