The Wizardry 8 demo features the first level of the actual Wizardry game. Players will start with a preset party since the level itself has been modified to be more advanced than the level in the full game. This was to allow players to see a greater sample of monsters and magical spells. Characters will gain levels as they play through the demo giving players the opportunity to see some elements of character development.
In the demo, players will be able to experiment with the complete flexibility between phased and continuous combat modes, character formations and Wizardry 8's unique magic system with unique targeting characteristics that make for a combat experience exceeding anything previously seen. Characters will be able to pick locks, disarm traps and experience a small glimpse at some of the initial puzzles.
