Tyrantsaurus Hex: WWII Global Conflict Demo

By Kieron Gillen on March 5th, 2010.

By Kieron Gillen on September 21st, 2009.

I see no ship jokes left to say
Are you excited about the forthcoming turn-based wargame from Battlefront? Here’s a chance to continue to be excited (and/or be crushingly disappointed). Are you not aware of it? Here’s a chance to have your expectations created. Are you still reading this paragraph? Well done. The beta demo of Empire of Steel can be downloaded from here. As the name says, it’s beta, so expect issues, but it includes two full maps to play, with no restrictions, and a chance to nose at all the other features. To get a feel for the game, there’s a game footage video below…
