Earlier this month, THQ and Vigil Games announced an upcoming Darksiders demo. What's so special about a demo, you ask? This one is an estimated 90 minutes long.
The Darksiders demo is now available on Xbox LIVE and PSN, and as previously stated, it covers the entire Twilight Cathedral area, which includes boss battles against the Jailer and the oh-so-attractive bat-queen Tiamat. Of course, you'll also get a taste of Darksiders' puzzles, though it's really a small sample of what the full game offers.
So far, Darksiders has sold 1.2 million copies worldwide across both consoles, and the team is hoping the demo boosts that figure. THQ's Travis Plane basically said as much:
“We are delighted with the reception Darksiders has received to date and are pleased to offer gamers the opportunity to experience the title for themselves. We believe this new demo on Xbox 360 and PlayStation3 will help to further increase the success of this game and engage new audiences.”
Hey, it received mostly high marks. We strongly urge you guys to check it out.
