The Settlers 7 Demo, Specs

The Ubisoft Forums announce the availability of a playable demo for The Settlers 7, the next installment in the long-running strategy management series (thanks Xirix). The 2.6 GB download is on German website Pfanni, but word is it is a multilanguage demo, and a mirror of the demo is now available on AtomicGamer, FileFront, Fileplay, Gamer's Hell, and WorthPlaying. On a semi-related note, the Mac edition of the gam is now available for preorder from Macgamestore, which will come with a free copy of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Hard Evidence. A set of system requirements accompany the demo, which are clearly for the full game, including mention that Ubi's DRM requiring a persistent online connection is present in both the game and the demo. We've run the specs through Google Translate and posted them below.

A PC demo from Ubi?. Inconcevible!

Still has the same POS DRM that the game will carry, so no thanks and fuck you Ubi.
