Command & Conquer 3 demos planned

In addition to showing off fresh views of the Brotherhood of Nod faction, executive producer of the blisteringly good-looking Command & Conquer 3 brought good news for both sides. He confirmed that ravenous PC gamers will be given at least one demo before the game's 2007 launch. No word yet on sneaking a peek on the Xbox Live Marketplace yet for console gamers on the 360, though.

A single-player demo has been promised and a later multiplayer version may also be released, depending on the main game's schedule - strategy fans will want to keep their fingers crossed for it. The final C&C3's multiplayer is intended to be a step forward for RTS titles, offering a tournament mode that allows hundreds of players to sit on the sidelines as spectators and watch the action.
