SEGA and wholly owned buddies Creative Assembly have released a demo version of Medieval II: Total War, the duo's forthcoming highly anticipated real-time strategy sequel.

The mighty 488MB download should give you a taste of the Battle of Hastings, which serves as a tutorial, along with the Battles of Pavia and Agincourt.

The full game can handle up to 10,000 dynamic characters in battle at once, and features a completely redesigned multiplayer component to consider as you strike out across Europe and the Holy Land, in between discovering the Americas and boffing the Aztecs on the head.

Due out on 6th November, if the last title - Rome - was anything to go by, it should be a sight to see. See for yourself by checking out the latest Siege Warfare video on Eurogamer TV.
