Civilization Revolution joins the demo party this Thursday on the PSN [Update 3]

June 4, 2008 Written by StalkingSilence

According to 2K Games, we will be getting a demo of Civilization Revolution this Thursday on the PLAYSTATION Store.  Hopefully this doesn’t turn out like the NASCAR 09 demo from last week where EA Sports announced it was coming out but didn’t check with Sony first!

Either way, this Thursday is shaping up to be pretty great.  In addition to the first ever episode of Qore (presented by PSN, but not a “paid subscription by Sony” as so many other gaming blogs falsely reported), the Civilization Revolution demo should join demos for Battlefield: Bad Company and NASCAR 09.  We might even see a demo/full download for Fatal Intertia EX.  (Update 1: Plus NOVASTRIKE) (Update 2: and Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3!)

Add on top of that the confirmed 6 Rock Band songs, a possible Army of Two FREE map pack, and the Guitar Hero III cross-promotional God of War song (Update 3: + Motorhead Track Pack), and you have quite a week shaping up!

Remember, this content is always subject to change (there’s definitely more content we haven’t heard about yet and some of the content could always be pushed back).

  • Qore – Episode 1 | Confirmed
      • NOTE: Qore is “Presented by the PLAYSTATION Network” – keyword “presented” – and the content put up there are negotiated outside of the regular PSN Store group.  SOCOM: Confrontation beta invite is similar to the MGS4 beta invites or accessing the Battlefield: Bad Company demo early.  My understanding is that this is promotional, early demos will be released like normal on PSN, etc.  Not sure why this is causing so much resistance.
