Gas Powered and Stardock announced on its official forums that an update for Demigod will be made available today.
Patch 1.19 fixes loads of bugs, has some changes, and has removed the multiplayer Skirmish mode, but don’t worry – it will still be available for the single-player bit.
Another patch is due out next week and Stardock CEO Brad Wardell has promised more patch updates in the future along with the addition of a mod SDK for the game as well as the possibility of new maps.
It’s all through the official forums.

RTS is still finding its place on consoles, Gas Powered Games CEO Chris Taylor told VG247 at GamesCom last week, but at one time so were shooters.
The developer, currently hard at work on Supreme Commander 2 for both PC and 360, told us that not all gamers wish to go out and purchase a gaming rig just to play an RTS: therefore, the genre must come to them.
“Think about GoldenEye on the N64. I liked it, but I didn’t love it. Like, I didn’t die for it,” said Taylor.
“It’s like, I thought, ‘This is pretty OK’, but I fought with the controls a little bit. Nobody at that time would have said, ‘Shooters? On consoles?’ Now, some shooters do better on the console than they do on the PC. Halo, for example. Wow, we’ve come a long way.
“I keep remembering that if you can go into that market, and you can solve it, there is an upside there.”
Back in June, Taylor assured fans that more development time and more resources were being poured into Supreme Commander 2 on 360 after the first port received such a lukewarm reception.

Gas Powered Games CEO Chris Taylor has assured fans that more development time and more resources were being poured into the Supreme Commander 360 sequel after the first port got panned.
“We’re doing it [the port] in-house and giving it a lot more time and a lot more resources,” Taylor said.
“I would be very surprised if it didn’t do as well as the PC version.”
Look back at the first game Taylor told Joystiq at E3: “I felt bad [for] the developer who did the Xbox 360 version just did not have the time or the resources.
“It was a hair on fire mission.”
The initial reception for Supreme Commander 2 has been mostly positive. Here’s hoping it lives up to the early promise.
