Here’s a stupid question: Do you want an early taste of what it’s like to pull off ridiculous acrobatic maneuvers while grappling off moving cars, blowing up buildings and shooting dudes while parachuting off mountains in Avalanche Studios’ open-world stunt-tactular Just Cause 2? Told you it was a stupid question.
What’s not so stupid though is that Square Enix has announced that a demo for its upcoming sandbox action title will be released on PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and Steam on March 4. The demo will let players explore and wreak havoc across a 35 square mile portion of the game’s Lautan Lama Desert. (In case you were wondering, the full game map is 400 square miles. And yes, that is crazy.) as they hunt down and eliminate one of the game's 50 bad, bad military colonels.
General manager of Square Enix’s London Studio, Lee Singleton, calls the demo “simply massive,” and says, “It’s easily one of the biggest freeroaming demos of all time and for fans of open world games, it’s unmissable.”
Hard to argue with that. Just Cause 2 releases on March 23.
