Heroes OAE open beta

Of Annihilated Empires.

GSC Game World's offering PC gamers a chance to sample its upcoming real-time strategy and RPG cross-breed, Heroes of Annihilated Empires, by way of an open beta release.

Basically it's a one-mission demo, weighing in at 209MB. Allegedly it's available from the official site, although we can't access that at the moment so try a mirror instead.

Minimum specs for the demo are a 1GHz, 256MB RAM, 64MB video card system, although you'll need something with a 2GHz CPU, 1GB RAM and double the video RAM to meet the recommended specs. DirectX 9.0c is a prerequisite.

"With this beta version we deliberately lay a spell of enjoyment on you!" the readme file rather giddily declares. Judging by comments we've read about it, it's not working, but let us know what you reckon eh?
