Medieval II demo released
A demo is out for the historical RTS game by Creative Assembly. At 487.56 MB, the file includes a tutorial at the Battle of Hastings (Normans vs. Saxons), as well as full-scale scenarios at Pavia (Hapsburgs vs. French) and Agincourt (English vs. French). Absent is the full game's turn-based grand strategy mode. You can find mirrors for the demo here, here, here and here. A warning: according to Shacknews, a CPU with SSE2 support is required. This leaves out owners of Athlon or Athlon XP processors (Athlon 64 is supported).
