Demigod incorporates elements of RTS and action RPG games. Players choose their demigod and turn the tides in epic battles fought in ancient arenas. Single player revolves around the player working through a tournament style ladder to ascend to godhood. Multiplayer forces teams to work together to destroy the opposing forces and their stronghold.

Demigod uses the Supreme Commander engine to achieve a sense of scale unprecedented in a fantasy game. Colossal giants send armies flying off the edge and into oblivion in all-encompassing ancient battlefields.
