Stardock Finally Spawns Demigod DemoS

Three and a half months after its release, Stardock has finally figured out how to give PC gamers a small taste of Demigod gameplay with a multiplayer demo.

The problem that Stardock seemed to be having with releasing a demo for the action real-time strategy title was figuring out how to limit things while still giving players a good idea of what to expect from the title gameplay wise. What they've come up with is a demo with one map, four playable Demigods (Regulus, Rook, Sedna, and Lord Erebus), and all multiplayer modes.

Seems like an elegant solution to me. Allowing the player to experience multiple Demigods is key. The maps don't matter as much from a demo standpoint as letting players know that each Demigod they can pick offers them a completely different set of skills and powers to accomplish your goals in each game mode.

Check out my review from way back when - ignoring the now fixed networking issues - to get an idea of what to expect, or better yet, just head over to FilePlanet and download the damn thing.
