THQ Announces Massive Darksiders Demo

February 16, 2010Written by Sebastian Moss

Darksiders, a new IP developed by Vigil Games, may have already achieved rave review scores, sold exceptionally well, and be guaranteed a sequel, but that’s not enough for publisher THQ, who seems intent on pushing the new franchise. A 90-minute demo of Darksiders has been announced by THQ for the PlayStation Network, as well as the Xbox Live Marketplace.

The demo contains the entire first dungeon encounter from the game, the sprawling Twilight Cathedral. The level is said to provide a representation of the key facets of the game, and is set to contains puzzles, equipment and two boss battles, one with the monstrous demon Jailer and the other with the savage bat-winged Tiamat.

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.”

The demo will release on February 25th, will you play it? Tell us in the comments below…
