XIII Preview, Demo Plans

GameSpy.com's XIII Preview looks at Ubi Soft's upcoming cel-shaded Unreal-engine shooter based on getting to check out the game's "final alpha" at the recent CPL extravaganza. Included is word that a follow-up to the oddly distributed French demo (story) is forthcoming: "A single-player demo should be available around the middle of August, with a multiplayer demo following a few weeks later."

You guys need to play the demo, I agree that the movies are not extremely impressive. I really did enjoy the demo however.

I'd like to think I'm not getting jaded on shooters, as I am really looking forward to HL2, but when I saw the video of this I though 'jesus, same shiat'. Didn't excite me in the slightest.

Cartoon game = No thanks.

I'm sure there are plenty of comic book dorks out there who will enjoy it though.

Is the French demo available anymore? I must've missed the original story, and I can't find the demo on the linked site now. Google reports nothing too. I'm really eager to try this.

You guys might be missing the point - the game is trying to put a MASSIVE emphasis on style... something that is rarely done in the video game world. Its based on an actual comic book about conspiracies and whatnot - so the storyline will probably be somewhat intelligent and enjoyable (unlike 90% of FPSs).

The cell shading is done to keep the game looking EXACTLY like the comic... not as a gimmick.

After you guys mentioned the french demo was out, I found it through a simple search at yahoo.com. Very interesting. Graphics are pretty neat though if you see through them, it's nothing new. Felt a lot like No One Lives Forever to me. Well, I'll give the English demo a go also incase theres differences besides the language. L8r.

...want to try this one out. I originally wrote it off as a "Hey, loook at me! I may not be good, but I am cell-shaded." game, but it does seem to be getting some positive spin.

I just wonder if it really is great, if it just has some charm (cell-shading, the multi-panel, slow motion deaths, etc.), or if it is the game I originally thought it would be.

Coming in fresh; having never read the comic,
Ray

I installed it just fine, except the mouse input was all screwy, so it wasn't very playable.

Did anyone have trouble downing the French demo? I tried, installed the spyware they wanted me to install, then clicking on the "play for free" button just looped me around to the same page.

Final alpha? What? And they're putting out a demo this month? When is this game supposed to be released?
