The following information is largely based on extrapolations about a work-in-progress project and largely unconfirmed. The finished project may differ greatly.

Day of Reckoning is an unofficial expansion on the same level as Armageddon's Blade, Shadow of Death, and Horn of the Abyss.

Day of Reckoning (or DoR) is a comprehensive expansion for Heroes of Might and Magic III, designed as a continuation of the classic RoE/AB/SoD expansions and akin to HotA.

The project aims to complete the story of the Heroes III game by introducing elements tied to the Reckoning event, the cut Forge content, and fill story gaps such as, for example, what Adelaide did during her stay in Vori or what happened between Dragon's Blood and Clash of the Dragons. In the spirit of the official expansions, it adds new features that both reference other Might and Magic elements and increase the depth of the gameplay, aiming to stay true to both the canon of the universe as well as the design philosophies of the game. The Forge-related elements are designed in consultation with Heroes III lead designer Gregory Fulton to stick as close as possible to the original concept and intent of the faction; including the ability to disable it outside of campaign maps.

Just as Armageddon's Blade introduced elite units (the Enchanter and Sharpshooter) and Shadow of Death introduced combination artifacts, Day of Reckoning introduces alternative units in the fashion of Heroes of Might and Magic IV. For example, a Palace town can produce either Nisse or Vikings, but not both. Pre-existing factions also get alternative units, such as Dryads for Rampart and Wood and Metal Elementals for Conflux. Pre-existing neutrals such as the Enchanter and Sharpshooter will be added to certain factions—not to recruit—but to fit in lore-wise and to negate the morale penalty with mixing factions.

A few elements have been derived from previous works of members of the team, such as the Tides of War mod or some of the Mod Design Team towns. Any such element, however, has been reworked to fit better with the concept of the expansion.

Unlike In the Wake of Gods-based mods, Day of Reckoning's new towns are added to the game without replacing any existing towns. The mod requires Shadow of Death or Heroes of Might and Magic III Complete to run.
