Mirrors Added For Shogo Demo

Macgamefiles' hosting of the demo of Shogo: Mobile Armor Division has been a resounding success, with nearly 3,000 downloads in the first 24 hours -- but this level of demand puts extreme pressure on the server, resulting in slow downloads for some users. In response, MGF has added two mirror sites to decrease the demand on individual servers; they hope to add a European mirror to help those overseas and 'down under' to grab this file faster.

Shogo: Mobile Armor Division is an anime-inspired first-person shooter that features the much-hyped Monolith’s LithTech engine. In the game you play the role of Sanjuro Makabe, a young security officer at the United Corporate Authority Security Force, who is caught in the middle of a war that costs Sanjuro his family and friends. Now he’s bent on revenge against ‘The Fallen’, a mercenary terrorist group led by Gabriel.

The purpose of the demo of Monolith’s Shogo: M.A.D is to give you a general idea of the basic concept of the game. While the demo remains limited to 2 levels of single player and 2 levels of multiplayer, you can still get a good idea of both types of situations, the first being the M.C.A (Mobile Combat Armor) mission and the second being the Human mission. Certain features can only be accessed when in the M.C.A mode. Both game types have different weapons, although not all are included in this demo, you can still enjoy both side of the game.

Be sure and post your reaction and experiences with the Shogo demo in MGF's user reviews and in the IMG forums!
