Here's what many gamers have been waiting for: a Batman: Arkham Asylum demo.
This week, gamers will be able to preview Rocksteady Studios' superhero action game for themselves. On Friday, August 7, a demo will be released on Xbox LIVE for the Xbox 360, PSN for PlayStation 3, and Games For Windows LIVE for PC. If you plan to try this on PC, the official website will have instructions on how to download the GFW LIVE version.
The demo will go through the beginning of the game, as seen during E3 and Comic-Con. You'll get a glimpse of other characters like Commissioner Gordan and the Joker, while experiencing that FreeFlow combat we keep hearing so much about. Wanna be sneaky like Batman? The Invisible Predator mechanic will help you strike fear into the hearts of criminals from the darkness. Otherwise, you could always just run in waving your arms -- whichever works best for you.
Until Friday comes, entertain yourself with some reading material, like our full interview with Arkham Asylum director Sefton Hill at Comic-Con Internation 2009. Feed the hype!
