Capcom has announced that the demo for the upcoming sci-fi shooter Lost Planet 2 will arrive on Xbox Live from 19 August.
Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be the first to have a crack at the title, while Silver members will have to wait until 26 August.
Capcom advised that the demo will revolve around a "desperate battle against the enormous G-Type Salamander Akrid boss". Players will have multiple ways to beat this nasty, with the option of tackling the beast by "shearing off its legs" or "being swallowed and fighting their way out from the inside". Each option is sure to bring about its own unique challenge.
Lost Planet 2 is set to ship out to stores on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year.
