THQ have let TheSixthAxis know that there’ll be a playable demo of Darksiders released next week – the demo contains the entire first dungeon encounter from the game, the sprawling Twilight Cathedral.
This “engaging and challenging” level represents a cross section of Darksider’s key features, and contains puzzles, equipment and two boss battles – the monstrous demon Jailer and the savage bat-winged Tiamat. The demo is expected to take players 90 minutes to complete.
“We are really pumped to be bringing a playable demo for Darksiders to Xbox 360 and PlayStation3,” said David Adams, General Manager of Vigil Games. “We really wanted to give gamers a true idea of the variety of gameplay that the game offers and so rather than just making a standard 20-minute demo version of the first few levels, we decided to give away this massive level and reveal the true essence of the game.”
The demo will become available to download from Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network on 25 February.
