Many thanks to sherlock for submitting this exciting piece of news. Please note that this is not officially confirmed yet by ES/MS and should be treated as a possible happening at this point. An Ensemble Studios or Microsoft employee at this past week's German gaming convention apparently disclosed to the German gaming site GamesWeb.com that there will be a demo (could be an open beta) of some sorts for Age of Empires III coming next month.

*Drools all over keyboard resulting in stknes*

It's supposed to be mid September from what I've heard, and I hope its true . Every Age game that had a demo, the demo was released before the game so it will most likely follow the tradition.

I have no idea when it's going to actually release (or what the form will be) as Marketing's got the ball on that, but we are almost to RC0 on the actual demo. I put out another version for internal testing last night (or was that this morning?)...

I hope you have a fat Internet pipe

Will the demo have any sort of MP?

Not that the SP isn't great, but I'd love to try some matches against my friends.

One more note as long as you're here.

Please give whoever made the Napoleon AI a big huge hug. He's the only AI ever in an Age game to beat me, fair and square.

Well freaken done.

OK!!!1 Now as to Elpea's question. Didn't AOM and AOK demos have multiplayer support? I'm not sure maybe it was just that there was a skirmish in there or something.

Anyways Good To hear.


If there is a sort of skirmish mode please provide the french as I hear that the AI is quite good as them. Wie?

Sweeeeeete.
This will allow me to see if the game will run on my old GF4 MX440 video card, and allow the comunity to form some good idea of what you need to run the game with all the gadgets on in 1600x1200 ... then I can buy a new PC before the full version comes out .

I wonder if they will include all the civs in demo version, and I wonder if it will have more maps than the preview version's 3.

Interesting stuff!

Nice, about time those of us who didn't get the preveiw disk got the demo.

Where will we be able to get it from anyway? AOE3Files or here?

Forgive me if that sounds like a dumb question, its just that i have not seen any hint of a downloads section being put together yet.

AOK/AOM demos had MP support. In fact, most game demos have MP support. It shall be interesting to see if ES gives us MP play. If so, there will be many a sleepless night ahead.

*giggles in anticipation*

Elpea, any chance of sending me the preview disk? For... safekeeping? I mean, it's not like I'd use it or anything.

Nice.

The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.

Proletarians of all countries, unite!

Just to clarify, earier in this thread ES_BigDog announced there will not be multiplayer support in the AOE3 demo.

Woot! Demoooo! I'm as giddy as a school girl! And if it doesn't have multiplayer, I won't be heartbroken. Bloody 56k...

I'm glad the demo is ahead

I just hope it will be based on the last build available.
I think it is very logical the (beta)demo will only have SP. That should be enough to get a feel for the game and decide if you wanna have the full version (I want it.., i know already..).

CU,
