A demo of Empire: Total War will be released later today, Creative Assembly has confirmed to the game's community.
You'll be able to get you hands on Sega's RTS trial from 4pm this afternoon - but only if you're on Steam, it says. UPDATE: It's out.
No details have been offered on what exactly the trial will contain, but if demos for previous Total Wars are anything to go by we're expecting a tutorial and a handful of campaign maps at least.
The full game's out on March 4.
