Battlestations: Pacific Demo Next Week

Square Enix Eidos announces plans to release a single-player demo a week from tomorrow for Battlestations: Pacific, the World War II action/strategy sequel. The demo will be released on April 30 on both the Games For Windows LIVE and Xbox LIVE marketplaces, and here's the outline of what it will offer: "Players will experience one war through two epic sagas, enabling gamers to be a part of history or to dramatically alter it. The full game features an historically accurate US campaign alongside an historically possible Japanese campaign, spanning a total of 28 missions, five new multiplayer modes that can be played with up to eight players and over 100 air, sea and undersea units." The full game is currently expected for Windows and Xbox 360 on May 12 in North America and May 15 in Europe. There's a preview of the demo on GameSpot.
