Can't be bothered to go down the shops? Interested in playing Heroes of Annihilated Empires? Then you might want to download Steam, as GSC Game World's using it to digitally distribute the game later this month.

From 22nd November, anybody with Steam will be able to download the first chapter in the RTS / RPG hybrid trilogy and play through it for US$ 39.95, with lots of information and a trailer already accessible through the service.

Or you could check out some screenshots and trailers here on Eurogamer. Depends how much you like us.
