Dark Reign II Single Player Demo
This demo contains two single player levels from Dark Reign II, a real-time strategy game that features a fully 3D engine supporting multiple levels of elevation, line-of-sight restrictions and cool graphic effects. Dark Reign II also utilizes Intel’s MRM (multi-resolution mesh) technology, adjusting performance to make full use of your machine’s processing power. The game's story takes place in an apocalyptic, ecologically devestated future ruled by a repressive world police force that guards the world's domed cities. After a catastrophic event, a group of "Sprawlers" that live outside the domed boundaries rise in rebellion. You get to play one of the two groups. In this demo, some units are unavailable to the user, though they may be available to the AI.
