Any clues as to when the keys will be sent out? Like, will it be within the next 7 days?

Should be *sometime* next week. We'll make sure anyone who's set an alert or is tracking us gets the first heads-up

how publishers handle demos nowadays is retarded. hey you want a demo? sign up here or preorder the full game.

IT'S A FUCKING DEMO! you're advertising your game with it, just release the damn thing to the public. if you don't want to advertise you game then fine, i don't give a fuck about your game.

If you get a demo key for the PS3 you have to claim it with an EU account.

Got mine. I'm lucky I didn't check only the french site though.

Yeah, I know it's not factual, but MANY in UK still consider themselves to not be part of europe (specifically the EU).

I thought it was because right now they're available for the UK, but the rest of Europe still has to wait.

I know the giveaway was announced for April 9 on the french site and it didn't happen somehow.

Same for the 360 version. It's clearly written.

Please note, these keys are region-locked to European Xbox LIVE and PSN accounts - they are not valid in North America or any other country outside the EU.

Wat ? It's happening right now but there's no way to access this page on the site :lol

On the UK THQ site there's a big huge red "PLAY THE DEMO NOW" on the front page, but on the french one there's just now way to access this page if you don't browse NeoGAF.:lol

Holy shit! This game is incredible!


Its like Lost Planet, but with an insane amount of destructibility. There was a two story building and I placed satchel charges all on the ground floor, then detonated them for the house to crumble inwards, and come crashing down like a house of cards.

Someone please GIF that shit.

is it possible to activate 16:9 (with black bars) on a 4:3 tv in the final build? the game is fullscreen but a lot of information is missing on the sides of the screen.

besides that, the demo is awesome, love the hammer.

The demo is short if you do teh objective but wow, the walker is a BEAST!

You feel so powerful just breaking through the whole camp.

great example of a demo, totally hyped me on a game I wasn't fussed about and now will buy.

Back off to tit around in the level with explosives now.

The demo isn't cleared for release yet in Germany - it's still being age rated. Sorry :(

which is stupid: the game has almost no blood and should get a 16 or 18 rating without a problem. "should", since the killing spree a few weeks ago, the german rating board is a little sensitive...
@NIN90: you got pm.

Hm, don't know...destruction is neat but everything else is a bit meh. What's up with the ultra ugly floor textures? "Sharp" is not always a good choice regarding style. Imagine a bit red sand combined with some nice wind effects instead.

Anyone able to compare 360 and PS3?

OK, the enemies are super dumb and super ugly. Also they are respawning and annoying. Desctrution is the only thing which is good about that game, I guess it's a 75% title.

I'm playing the 360 version, Very impressive demo everything is solid,no tearing that i've noticed controls are very good,smooth as hell as well going from cover to shoot the enemies was cool not many games get that right they either make it too sticky or not sticky enough.

Destruction was a laugh first run through i went straight for the walker,and tore the area a new asshole,second run through messed around with the weapons a bit really like the feel of them meaty but not too overbearing.

Games on my to buy list now.:D

DO you need a UK PSN or XBL account?
Probably to sign up for the site (doesn't take much effort to set one up), but after that, the codes are universal. It DLs just fine on my US Live account.

edit:
I should note that although I signed up with my Euro PSN account, it still asked me what console I wanted the key for. So you're free to choose what you want.
