Strategy gamers, go on and get your free, new, updated demo of Empires of Steel. Try it out here.
The demo does have some limitations compared to the full version. First off, you can only play on two maps. You can use the full-featured map editor, but you can't load or save any maps. You can search through the online file exchange service for mods, maps, and other user created content, but you can't access any of it. You will, however, be able to use the auto-update function to download the latest beta demo updates over the next few weeks.
The beta demo expires automatically after 180 days.
