Overlord PC Demo Now Available

OverlordFor an early peek at Overlord before its June 26th debut on the PC and Xbox 360, click over to www.codemasters.com/overlord and download the newly released playable PC demo from Codemasters. In the demo, you get a brief chance to see what it’s like to rule the lands with an evil streak by commanding a team of loyal minions to perform your wicked desires, including destroying farms and wildlife, sucking life-force from poor little sheep and smacking some Halflings around.

I just finished playing through some of the demo myself and I must say I’m impressed with its unique play mechanics and beautiful visuals. If you aren’t a PC gamer, Codemasters also released a demo for the Xbox 360 version on the Live Marketplace this past Friday. Either way, I’d highly recommend giving the game a look if you haven’t already. I’ll definitely be looking forward to getting my hands on the final release here in a couple of weeks.

While you’re here, be sure to watch our stream of the latest Overlord trailer footage to see more of what this promising title will have to offer.
