Empire: Total War Demo Released via Steam

The demo provides a short glimpse of the kind of epic engagements available in the full version of the game
Valve announced today that a playable demo of Empire: Total War, the next installment in the Total War RTS franchise, is now available on Steam. The demo offers players the opportunity to take on the American Army and the French Navy from The Creative Assembly's own "home" side, playing as the British Empire in the "Battle of Brandywine Creek" and the "Battle of Lagos". In related news, those who pre-purchase Empire: Total War on Steam receive The Creative Assembly's game Rome Total War Gold Edition for immediate download. Empire: Total War will hit the store shelves in early March 2009.
