Conquest demo released

Your chance to try out the former Digital Anvil game

French publisher UbiSoft has released a demo version of Conquest : Frontier Wars, a space-based real-time strategy game which was originally being developed by Digital Anvil. Late last year though the game was dropped by publisher Microsoft, who then went on to buy the ailing developer, leaving Conquest in limbo. Since then the game's producer has been working on completing the title at Fever Pitch Studios, and our latest information is that it should be released some time in September, a couple of years later than originally anticipated.

In the meantime you can find out whether it's been worth the wait by downloading the demo, which weighs in at a relatively modest 41Mb. The demo features a random map generator, with both skirmish and six player online modes for you to tackle as any of three unique races.
