Dark Messiah is Steamed up

Friday 1 September 2006
First-person action-RPG Dark Messiah of Might and Magic will be available to download from Valve's Steam service in October at around $50 (or roughly £26) - saving you at least a tenner on the price of a shop-bought copy of the game. "I just can't wait to play it," says Valve honcho Gabe Newell. Neither can we, Gabe, neither can we.

To tempt non-Steamers into an offline purchase, though, publisher Ubisoft will release a limited edition of Dark Messiah of Might and Magic that'll only be sold by high street retailer Game. It'll include four new weapons in single-player and a DVD with a Making Of feature, 10 audio tracks from the game plus a 'grained' paper map of the Multiplayer world. Geographic-a-licious.
