This is just a quick heads up that Square has posted a demo
of Dungeon Siege III
on Xbox Live today (PC and PS3 owners will have to wait until June 7th to try it out). I'm kind of interested to see how the port of the game from the PC to the console as gone given how much of a PC game the previous two games were. I didn't get a lot out of the executive producer of the game when I talked to him last year
so I'm hoping we'll score some more info on the game next week.
Dungeon Siege III Demo NOW AVAILABLE ON XBOX 360
Demo of Action RPG from Obsidian Entertainment Hits Xbox 360 today;
PlayStation®3 system and Windows PC via Steam on June 7
LOS ANGELES (May 31, 2011) – Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in the Americas, today announced the availability of the demo for the company’s highly anticipated action role-playing game, Dungeon Siege® III. Developed by Obsidian Entertainment®, the Dungeon Siege III demo is now available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and will be available on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC via Steam® on June 7.
In Dungeon Siege III, players assume the role of one of four heroes, fighting for the sake of their fallen comrades to restore the land of Ehb. Conflict is constant in this action-RPG and decisions have lasting consequences, allowing players to alter the storyline. Choose to battle along with a companion or fight for honor with up to four friends via online co-op play. Dungeon Siege III allows for two players to experience the story from start to finish in local co-op mode. Thanks to the robust AI, Dungeon Siege III’s co-op multiplayer mode allows players to seamlessly drop in and out of battle without interrupting the action or impacting the campaign.
Torn asunder, the delicate balance of power between the kingdom of Ehb's powerful factions has fallen apart. As one of the few remaining members of the disgraced protectors of the land, the 10th Legion, it is up to you to rebuild the once great Legion and stop Ehb from falling into darkness. Joined by a group of unique companions, you will travel through the striking land of Ehb defeating all manner of villains and beasts through a combination of heroic abilities, screen shaking magic and pure cunning.
