A month and a half after it's release, THQ have today released a 90-minute demo for Darksiders
, allowing you to "get to grips with Darksiders’ true essence."
Whatever that means.
The demo contains the entire first dungeon encounter from the game, the sprawling Twilight Cathedral. This engaging and challenging level contains dozens of puzzles for players to solve, new pieces of equipment to discover and epic boss battles against the monstrous demon Jailer and the savage bat-winged Tiamat. Representing a cross section of Darksiders’ key features, the demo will take approximately 90 minutes to complete for the average player.
David Adams, General Manager of Vigil Games commented:
“We are really pumped to be bringing a playable demo for Darksiders to Xbox 360. 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.”
Personally, I'm pleased to see such a lengthy demo for this. It's one of those games that you hear mixed things about, that some people love and some loathe, and that you only really know if it's your cup of tea by trying the game out for yourself. And be able to try a whole ninety minutes of the game for free? Awesome.
I say free, the demo is currently exclusive for Xbox Live Gold members. Check the link below to download the demo via the Xbox.com Marketplace now.
