The Lost Planet 2 co-op demo is now available through the PSN!
PlayStation 3 fans rejoice! The Lost Planet 2 co-op demo is officially available via the PlayStation Network beginning today, September 24 2009. Squads of four will make their way through three playable missions in the lush jungle of E.D.N III collecting precious thermal energy from the bodies of the Akrid which inhabit the planet. With a huge arsenal of weapons and utilizing robotic Vital Suits, players will encounter Akrid of all shapes and sizes leading up to the desperate battle against the enormous Category G Akrid which has made appearances at E3, Comic Con, and GamesCom.
The demo is a brief glimpse into the world and possibilities of Lost Planet 2, highlighting the range of weaponry available to players while showing off the high definition graphical capabilities of MT Framework 2.0, the latest version of Capcom’s proprietary 3D game engine. The first generation of MT Framework powered Capcom games like Dead Rising, the original Lost Planet and Devil May Cry 4, while an updated 1.5 version made possible the award-winning visuals of Resident Evil 5.
The Xbox 360 Brutal Legend demo is now available to all Xbox Live Gold members. Previous, it was only available to those who pre-ordered the game (which seems to essentially defeat the purpose of a demo, to me). Regardless, more details here (Slightly off topic, and I know it’s not exactly a brand new feature, but I like how you can add items to your queue and they start downloading once you turn on your 360, great for adding stuff at work so you don’t forget later). I can’t wait to finally try out the game.
Sony confirmed today that the E3 demo for God of War 3 will be included with the God of War Collection, which is scheduled to be released on November 10. The game will come with a voucher code to download the demo from the PlayStation Network (since it’s not on the disc, that might indicate they plan to release the demo to everyone sometime in the future). The PS3 collection runs $39.99 and seems like a pretty good deal if you haven’t played any of the series, especially with the God of War III demo included.
It’s Left 4 Dead news day, apparently. At a press conference held in Tokyo, EA announced that a Left 4 Dead 2 demo will be out October 27th. No details on if the demo would be for the PC, Xbox 360, or both.
