XBLM Update: Dark Messiah 360 Demo Goes Live


If you’ve logged onto the Xbox Live Marketplace at all today, you’ll have noticed that Ubisoft has launched a demo for Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements, the enhanced and expanded 360-exclusive port of Arkane Studios’ fun but exceptionally buggy PC RPG from last year. At 689 MB, the demo comes packed with both single-player and online multiplayer modes to try out. Warrior and Mage classes are playable in the solo demo, but I believe all classes are open in the multiplayer — I’ve only tested out the single-player thus far, so I’m not positive on that. Overall, the 360 version appears to be shaping up well. I think the more action-oriented play style works better on a console than PC, and as long as all the bugs have been ironed out this port should be MUCH better than the original. We’ll know soon enough, as Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements is only a few weeks away from its January 10th retail debut.
