Demo Roundup: September 10th, 2013

By Ashley Woodcock, 6 years ago
From crawling through dungeons to sprinting on the football/soccer field, three new demos look to take up some of your time and impress this week with Blizzard Entertainment, EA, and Konami releasing demos for their released/upcoming titles.

First up, we have Diablo III. Released last Tuesday for the Xbox 360, this role-playing title has been well-received by our community here at TA with 195 votes giving the game a current rating of 4.7/5 Stars. It's still early days for a solid figure on the game's TA Ratio, but it's currently looking like a difficult completion with the 1000G offering a meaty 4535 TA points! The demo is packing 1.28 GB and can be downloaded right here.

Twenty years have passed since the Prime Evils were defeated and banished from the world of Sanctuary. Now, you must return to where it all began—the town of Tristram—and investigate an omen that the End Times have begun. The demo version of Diablo III includes all five powerful Hero classes, local and online multiplayer, and game progression up to the Skeleton King. Demo saves can be carried forward to the full game.
EA aim to calm the cravings of eager football fans with the fresh release of the demo for the upcoming and highly-anticipated FIFA 14. FIFA 14 will be releasing on the Xbox 360 on September 24th for North America, and September 27th for other regions. The Xbox One release is set for November 22nd. Weighing in at 1.51 GB, set the demo to download right here, and then check out this trailer while you wait:

Feel the emotion of scoring great goals in FIFA 14. The game plays the way great soccer matches are contested, with innovations to the award-winning gameplay that inspire fans to build play through midfield, dictating the tempo of a match. Feel the tension as chances are created, and experience the thrill of hitting the back of the net. A new feature called Pure Shot and a brand-new ball physics system will transform shooting, making every shot attempt feel real, and when players connect with the perfect strike, feel exhilarating. FIFA 14 delivers engaging online features and live services that connect fans to the heartbeat of the sport—and to each other—through EA SPORTS Football Club. FIFA 14 is football's social network, where fans connect, compete and share with millions of others around the world.

Lastly, Konami will have a demo releasing later this week for their upcoming sports title, Pro Evolution Soccer 2014, which will be available for Europe on Thursday, September 12th. For you eager gamers in North America, however, you guys can get your hands on the 1.80 GB demo right here, right now!

The demo will be a full representative of the final game, allowing users to play as several teams within a full match scenario, and to experience the individuality PES 2014 offers in terms of player movement and skill. The demo will also include a tutorial element, to help familiarize users with the overhauled controls.
The full game is still scheduled for release on September 20th for Europe and September 24th for North America. Be sure to check out the recently covered details and screens on every game mode for PES 2014.

All three demos are exclusive to Xbox LIVE Gold Members for one week. After the week is up, the demos will be downloadable and playable for all.
