Download arx_demo_english.zip or arxdemoenglish.zip (153 MiB, md5sum: 3c59a5799e1237b1b181c96e8c09155a)

The following sites work without a login and don't wrap the .zip file in an annoying .exe at the time of this writing.

Nordig Games also host a different variant of the demo that is packaged in a self-extracting RAR archive: arx_demo_english.exe (155 MiB, md5sum: fd03149f402b84d23145b39d12403dc8)

Under Windows, just install the demo normally and then use the Windows installer for Arx Libertatis.
