For eons, the planet Natrolis was controlled by the magic of the reptilian Sorin race. But when a fleet of tech-powered humans arrives to colonize the surface, they awaken the unimaginable - the Dreil, a hyper-evolved insectoid warrior race hibernating deep within the planet's core. Now, all three forces collide in a mortal struggle for domination. The Dark Planet demo allows you to play as the Human Colonist race, while learning to use the basic units in the game. Your mission is to explore the planet Natrolis and rescue your missing commander, a captive of the mysterious Sorin race. In order to find, and escort the commander to safety, you must gather resources and build an effective group of ground troops. This demo includes a multiplayer component.
