is now available in North
American stores and for worldwide digital distribution, though the
action/strategy game has actually inadvertently been available for a
. Here's the announcement:
PLYMOUTH, MI (APRIL 14, 2009)
- Stardock (www.stardock.com) announced
today that its much anticipated PC real-time action strategy game, Demigod is
now available for purchase at most retail outlets in North America as well as
available worldwide digitally via Impulse (www.impulsedriven.com)
at the same price ($39.95) no matter where the person is located.
Developed by renowned gaming studio Gas Powered Games, Demigod lets players take
control of an immensely powerful being whose goal is to defeat his brethren in a
series of epic arenas in order to ascend into the pantheon of the gods. During
the course of each battle, players gain experience, purchase equipment, learn
magical spells, capture key resources and upgrade their Citadel while working to
lay waste the opposing faction.
Demigod battles take place in spectacular environments that are visually
stunning and yet still run well on relatively older hardware thanks to a new
technology developed by Gas Powered Games that optimizes the way rendering is
executed on most video cards.
“Demigod in many ways captures the combined spirit of two hit Gas Powered Games
titles – Supreme Commander and Dungeon Siege,” said Brad Wardell, president &
CEO of Stardock. “In Demigod, the player controls a massively powerful unit who
in some ways is like the commander in Supreme Commander except here, like in
Dungeon Siege, the character can purchase equipment, buy items, and go up in
level as he gains experience to access more powerful skills.”
In single player, Demigod provides both a skirmish mode for individual battles
as well as a tournament in which players choose a Demigod and compete against
other Demigods controlled by the computer to gain the most favor points with the
gods in order to ascend.
In multiplayer, players can compete in online skirmishes in which matches
players together based on their skill and experience or participate in the
Pantheon, a persistent online tournament in which players choose a faction and
earn favor points to through victory in the arena. Wins, losses, experience and
much more is available.
Demigod is also the first PC title to make full use of Stardock’s new
development platform, Impulse Reactor which provides Demigod with its in-game
community features (friends, chat, tournaments, matchmaking, and more).
Like all Stardock games, the retail version of the game contains no DRM or copy
protection. It includes Impulse to allow users to update to the latest version
or even re-download the entire game. Players can install the game on multiple
computers via Impulse without a hassle.
