    The demo was supposed to be released yesterday (Thurday February 26th) but Ubisoft has delayed it to correct a gamebreaking bug.

    EDIT: Also the game is sponsored by ATI :rockout: finally some biased performance for the red team :roll:

    EDIT: The demo has now been released. You may download it from any of your favorite game demo sites.

    Idk I was looking at the game but I'm not much of a plane guy. I see it's sponsored by ATi, that's always good. Crossfire support outta the box maby :toast:

    There's a button for that :p jk

    Probably still have to wait for whichever Catalyst is released after the full game to get crossfire support. Hope not but only the demo can tell us now.

    I was just kidding. :)

    I hope this game is good. I think it will really be a good game to play on my TV. I'll try to sit really close so it feels like the IMAX. :roll:

    I've been in need of a good flight combat game. Now I just need a space combat one.
    *prays to game gods for Freespace 3*

    This game looks enticing though. Good find on the delay

    I want this game so bad

    I would commit homicide for Freespace 3, so long as I could play it in prison.

    Demo should come out on March 2... which is completely retarded IMO.

    Friday + demo = awesome

    Monday + demo = waiting all day to play... Mondays suck enough already. :shadedshu

    So I'm trying to find out which sites will have the demo for download. File Planet is letting subscribers pre-load the demo which is lame because it makes me think they they have an exclusive release of the demo.

    If you register for free you can use the download manager to reserve the download (your place in queue i think) but they make no mention of when it will actually let you start downloading.

    No other sites appear to have the demo available....

    It's not a huge title. It's unlikely any of the cheese sites like Vile Planet, will need to secure the rights to it, in order to gain web-hits.

    Gamershell should have it when it's available, and they are still the best(and free) gaming demo site around.

    You're right, it's not a huge title but I do think it will be pretty big. vile planet seems to think it will be pretty popular if they are even bothering to have a pre-load available.

    Ubisoft has also gone out of their way to include support for pretty obscure hardware only die hard flight game enthusiasts would own.

    Gamershell is a pretty good site, I usually go to fileshack since I get 1mb/s on every file.
