Euro MMO Dates

WoW-Europe.com (thanks Frans) now offers an official European street date for World of Warcraft, announcing that Blizzard's MMORPG will officially launch on the continent on February 11, 2005. Word is: "The game will be available for Windows® 98/ME/2000/XP and Macintosh® in English, French and German. There will be a standard edition, containing the game on four CD-ROM disks, and a collector’s edition with a plethora of included World of Warcraft memorabilia. Both versions will be fully localised into English, French and German, and will also be available with a Spanish or Italian box and manual." Also, a press release was issued earlier today narrowing March 25, 2005 (from Spring (story)) as the date the red pills will be distributed for the European launch of The Matrix Online, Monolith's upcoming MMORPG (which is planned for a simultaneous North American launch). It seems the agents are onto this one, however, as the press release has been removed from its source, so it's not clear at this point if that new release date is actually valid.

You never get to demo MMORPGs? I beg to differ. Most have an open beta test immediately before release, which might as well be called a demo

But I think waxthirteen was referring to a general running demo. One available all the time, not just at beta time. For example...I play WoW alot right now. Love it. Have no intention of switching to anything anytime soon. However, am I curious to see what EQ2 is like? Of course. (and this isn't a request to slam or praise EQ2 or Wow) Id love to try out EQ2 for a day or two...but I'm not going to drop 50 bucks just to test it out. I know the logistics are hard in offering a free trial sometimes (SWG is doing it right now) but it would definitely be nice to be able to trial an MMORPG at my leisure, and not just at open-beta with 9 million people trying to DL the client at the same time.
