Ik lees hier net op Gamespot dat de Age of Empires II: Age of Kings demo op het net staat! Hier heppie de buzz:
The demo you've all been waiting for has finally arrived! Microsoft has improved upon the original Age of Empires and delivered one of the year's best strategy games. The basic details of the demo are listed below, and we've also posted the readme.rtf as a download (it'll come through reaaaallly quickly) in case you want to know everything possible about the demo before downloading.
The contest being held through our upcoming Gigex download will start shortly, within the next hour. We have 20 copies of the full game to give out as well as about 20 posters signed by designer Bruce Shelley.
Included in the demo:
The William Wallace Learning Campaign - Whether you are a master at Age of Empires and Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome or completely new to real-time strategy games, the William Wallace campaign will teach you the basics, plus you'll see what's new in Age of Empires II. To play the William Wallace campaign, click Learn to Play on the main menu.
A Sample Random Map Game - This is the heart of Age of Empires II and the variations are endless. You start in the Dark Ages with just a Town Center, three villagers and a Scout. Build your empire to eliminate your two computer-player opponents. To play, click Random Map on the Single Player menu.
Four-player multiplayer game - Using another sample Random Map, you can join your friends and battle your enemies on the MSN Gaming Zone. To play a multiplayer game, click Multiplayer on the main menu.
