Dark Messiah video feature

See how the game begins.

With Dark Messiah of Might & Magic out today on PC, Eurogamer TV is running a special exclusive introduction to the war-town land of Ashan, with a sneak peek at the game's opening story sequence, and a run through of all the game's key features.

The three-part video preview (one, two, three) should give you an idea of how good the game's looking, and if that's not enough you can always read our 8/10 review.

As the review itself says, Arx Fatalis developer Arkane's latest title is a linear, first-person fantasy action role-playing game, but with the emphasis on action. Bearing comparison in some areas to the likes of Oblivion and Thief, using Half-Life 2's Source Engine as a basis, it's quite a handsome bugger too.

But then, you'll know that already if you're watching the preview, so why don't I just be quiet?
