Atlus has released The Cursed Crusade demo today, a good two weeks before the full game is released on October 25. The download is around 670MB, which is actually surprisingly small even for a demo.
The demo covers the "Assault on Castle Biron" mission, and cuts off in the middle of a boss fight. The difficulty is locked into "Crusade" (Easy), and cooperative play is currently unavailable, both online and local, meaning you'll just be playing as Denz de Bayle.
The voice work isn't the best, but the inclusion of era-appropriate weapons is definitely a lot of fun. Last we checked, the demo has only appeared on Xbox LIVE, though we're expecting it to pop up on Steam and PSN fairly soon.
As always, Cursed Crusade will launch at a lower price of $40.
