For Liberty! Demo Released

Game publisher and Hungarian developer Hussar Games are excited to release to the public the demo of the game For Liberty! 

Released July 4th, last week in honor of the 230th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, For Liberty! offers exciting turn based strategic planning and tactical combat during the Revolutionary War from 1775-1783. 

This Windows demo has a filesize of 97 megs and can be downloaded immediately from here. 


Demo Info:

The For Liberty! Demo features a hypothetical southern campaign from April to October 1780. You must stop the raiding Indians and also fight a full British brigade. Most gameplay features are enabled in the Demo, and you can even play the tactical battles! 


TCP/IP and PBEM multiplayer are not available in this version, but if there is interest we will release a multiplayer enabled demo in the future. 

In addition to the American Revolution, don’t forget that the full game also features an entire other theater of operations: Hungary during the Rakoczi Independence War. This was the eastern conflict that occured during the Spanish Inheritance War (1703-1711). It is a completely different experience from war in the colonies and features fort sieges and much more fluid use of cavalry.
