THQ Announce extended DARKSIDERS™ demo

THQ have today announced the release of the Darksiders demo, but this is no ordinary demo.  To show off the true content they have decided to create a 90 minute (yes one hour and a half!) demo so that players can really immerse themselves in gameplay and get to grips with the challenges available.

Keep an eye out for our full review coming soon.

Here is the press release:


Over 90 minutes of gameplay coming for both Xbox 360® and Playstation®3

AGOURA HILLS, Calif. February 16, 2010 – Gamers will be able to get to grips with Darksiders™’ true essence in the upcoming release of a 90-minute game demo for Xbox 360® and PlayStation®3 based on THQ Inc.’s critically acclaimed action-adventure game.

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. The demo will become available to download from Xbox LIVE® and PlayStation®Network on 25 February.

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.”

About Darksiders 
Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of mankind, WAR – the first Horseman of the Apocalypse – must return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those responsible. War must take on the forces of Heaven and Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vengeance.  Players harness the apocalyptic power of War, combining brutal attacks and supernatural abilities to decimate enemies who stand in his way.  With an extreme arsenal of weapons, War blazes a trail of destruction, and emerges even more deadly atop Ruin, War’s fiery phantom steed.  Darksiders is now available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.  For more information, please visit www.darksiders.com.
