In Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, players will discover the world of Ashan, the new universe that will be present in all future Might & Magic games. The players will embody the young Sareth, trained in the arts of magic and war to fight the prophecy of the "Dark Messiah." They will be able to choose to become warriors, mages or killers, each having a special arsenal of weapons and spells to be used in combat. Through combat, players will develop Sareth's experience level and unlock new skills and new equipment. Armed with new combos, hits, spells and other combat techniques, Sareth will be ready to brave his fate.

The demo includes one tutorial level and one level from the full game.
