Square Heroes 1.5 Demo has been released on Steam. Demo players are able to create and jump into online matches, so expect an influx of new players! The online modes are a huge part of the game, but we can't give everything away for free. The demo has these limitations:

  • Single player tournament
  • 3 out of the 19 Single Player levels.
  • No Achievements, and hence no stat tweaking hats!
  • XP Level capped at 5 rather than 30.
  • 5 default weapons plus 4 weapons to unlock.
