I played the awefull beta, like you all did! I was just wondering, what will be the difference in this demo, and the beta we all saw? will there be more gameplay option or?

Is very simple, the beta is the full game but with some options disabled (campaigns, single player and other things) and usually has bugs.

Demo is a Demostration of the finally-early final game with no many bugs (like our HoMM5)

I hope this could help you http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Bard2000, read through this http://www.celestialheavens.com/viewpage.php?id=511 and see if your thoughts change. The open beta was ridiculously stripped down, older portion of the game and a ton of changes and enhancements have been made. The demo is a portion of the complete game and will work VERY different. The "proof is in the pudding" tomorrow too, try the demo http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

This is exciting! Even if I was on the beta and fixed so I could play it in sp, I was so disturbed by the music(wich was bugged) that I hardly played it at all. Hope the music works in the demo! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
