DreamCatcher Interactive has released a self-running demo of Hegemonia: Legions of Iron, its upcoming real-time space strategy game.

GameSpot Complete users can download the demo from the links below, and it is also available for download from the game's official Web site.
Hegemonia is set in a time when the people of Earth and Mars are threatened by an invading alien force. The real-time strategy game features three different races and a variety of different types of spaceships. Players will have to manage their fleet of ships, terraform and colonize planets, manage their resources, and research or steal new technology. The game will include two different single-player campaigns, as well as cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes for up to eight players over Internet or LAN connections.
Hegemonia is being developed at Digital Reality, the Hungarian studio that created Imperium Galactica and Imperium Galactica II, and it is scheduled for release this fall. For more information, take a look at our previous coverage of the game and download the new demo.
