Dungeon Siege 3 Demo

Dungeon Siege 3, an upcoming action role-playing game for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. Since Tuesday, the demo for the third game in the series Dungeon Siege has been out and available for Xbox 360.

The demo offers players the choice of two out of the four characters: Lucas, the Guardian and Anjali, the Archon. Both characters have a wide range of abilities that they can learn over time and equipment to carry. As well, they each have two separate fighting stances that they can enter into in order to have access to different abilities and equipment.

Lucas at first feels like a typical grunt or warrior character that is a staple to the action RPG genre, able to wield big swords, wear heavy armor and generally soak up and deal a lot of damage. His first fighting stance is more defensive, being that of a sword and shield, while his second is more aggressive, allowing him to wield a two-handed sword that sweeps at enemies all around him.

Story:The game will be returning to the Kingdom of Ehb and focus on the 10th Legion. The legionnaires protected Ehb during the War of Legions and at the end of the war, the commanders of the 10th Legion established a new and independent kingdom of Ehb. The Legion continued to provide stability and protection while the ruler-ship of the kingdom was left to the monarchy.

The Legion became powerful with its influence matching the monarchy. Thirty years ago, the Ehb's king was murdered and the blame was cast upon the Legion. Led by Jeyne Kassynder, the people rose up and the 10th Legion is on the verge of being wiped out.

With the fall of the Legion, the kingdom has broken into smaller states, with Jeyne Kassynder controlling the Church and eastern Ehb. The monarchs have retreated to the mountain of Glitterdelve.

Only a few groups of the Legion descendants managed to survive as most of them were hunted down and slain by Jeyne Kassynder - while others fell victim to the mobs. One of the groups that managed to survive is led by Venerable Odo - believed to be the last surviving legionnaire.

Odo initiated a gathering and asked all the Legion descendants to assemble in northern Ehb, in an attempt to rebuild the Legion and take back their kingdom from Jeyne Kassynder. Dungeon Siege 3 will be released on June 21 2011. (source)
