Lords of EverQuest demo released
Lords of EverQuest, Sony's MMORPG derived strategy game developed by Rapid Eye Entertainment, has been released in demo form, giving players the chance to try out a tutorial mission and then battle for control of the demo map over the Internet using two of the Shadowrealm lords. The demo weighs in at quite a hefty 373MB and you can grab it from 3D Gamers and GameSpot amongst other mirrors.
For those who missed out on the game's announcement in April, Lords of EverQuest is a real-time strategy game with RPG overtones. Like WarCraft III's heroes, the 15 lords of the title are special units, which can gather experience, levels and new abilities throughout a 12-mission campaign. Rapid Eye president Mark Caldwell said at the time that the developer wanted "to create the new king in RTS gaming". Has it happened?
