Vigil games has announced plans on releasing a demo for the recently released game, Darksiders. It's a little late considering the game has been out since January 5, but if you're still on the fence, then the demo should pique your interest.
This isn't your typical demo. Instead of playing through the first 20 minutes of the game, players will be able to take on the game's first dungeon, Twilight Cathedral, in its entirety. This dungeon, packed with 90 minutes of gameplay, contains dozens of puzzles, new pieces of equipment, and two huge boss battles against the demon Jailer and the bat-winged Tiamat.
This demo promises to represent all of the key features of Darksiders. Hopefully this means that if you liked the demo there will be no huge changes in the full game like there were in Brutal Legend and its demo (The demo revealed typical hack and slash gameplay with some vehicle combat while the full game almost immediately shifted into real time strategy where the demo ended.)
David Adams, General Manager of Vigil Games commented:
“We are really pumped to be bringing a playable demo for Darksiders to Xbox 360 and PlayStation3. 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.”
If you're already interested, you can ride on over to any local retailers and pick it up for about $49.99. But if you're still not sure, the Darksiders demo will be available in the Xbox live marketplace on February 25th, 2010.
For your convenience, here are a few local places that Darksiders can be found.
