Releases Demigod v1.2, New Demigod Added

Stardock and Gas Powered Games are
pleased to announce that Demigod v1.2 is now available for download. The new
version includes improvements based on player feedback and adds a new Demigod to
the mix – the Demon Assassin. Demigod is a real-time strategy game that combines
action and role playing elements. In the game, the player takes on the role of a
demigod, a single powerful being whose goal is to ascend into the pantheon of
the god. The demigod does this by earning favor points with the gods through
combat in a series of arenas (

The single player game includes both
a skirmish mode as well as a “pantheon mode.” Online, players can choose to play
custom games with an endless combination of options set by the host (with new
options added in v1.2) or play in the Pantheon in which the players choose to
fight for the forces of light or the forces of darkness in an effort to gain
enough favor points to allow their side to win.

Demigod multiplayer “epoch 3” is set
to begin next week in which player rankings and records from epoch 2 are added
to the pantheon vault and new stats begun from scratch.

A list of new features and fixes is

  • New Demigod added: The Demon

  • New AI option in multiplayer: The
    host can set what the death of an AI player does in terms of how much gold and
    XP players receive.

  • New AI option: How much HP do
    Demigods get by default (very high, high, normal, low).

  • Modding Manager. Demigod now
    supports modding. We will be releasing mod samples in the next couple of weeks
    to get the ball rolling.

  • Mod System. Mods are treated in
    the game like options. If all players have a given mod installed and the host
    of the game has it enabled, it is used in the game.

    connection. Throughput is an important factor as well. For best online
