90-minute Darksiders demo coming next week

THQ will release an extensive demo for Darksiders on February 25. The 90-minute demo features the first dungeon in the game, which should provide enough puzzle-solving and combat to either convince you the game is worth buying, or that it’s too much of a copycat. We enjoyed the game, for what it’s worth.

The demo features the entire Twilight Cathedral level, which includes new weapons to discover and two bosses. The demo will be available for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

“We are really pumped to be bringing a playable demo for Darksiders to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3,” said David Adams, general manager of Vigil Games. “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.”
