Bionic Commando Demo Coming Soon

Let’s be Bionic…. online!

Capcom is excited to announce that
the demo for Bionic Commando will launch on Xbox Live in the coming weeks!
Focusing on Bionic Commando’s exhilarating online multiplayer mode, the demo
will feature “Vertigo,” one of the game’s 16 multiplayer maps where 8 players
will go head to head in an all out Deathmatch. But this is no ordinary
Deathmatch. Swing through the air while showering your opponents with hot lead,
use the grapple to zip to safety before a grenade explodes at your feet and
laugh as enemies plummet from the tops of skyscrapers following a well aimed
zip-kick to the chest!

The full version of Bionic Commando
will feature Solo & Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag. But make no mistake,
multiplayer is just one part of the new Bionic Commando experience.

In single player mode, Bionic
Commando sees the return of the bionically-enhanced Nathan "R.A.D." Spencer.
Time has not been kind to Spencer: Five years after his heroic defeat of the
Imperials, he has been betrayed by the government he swore to serve, imprisoned
for crimes he didn’t commit, and sentenced to death. Bionic Commando transposes
the much loved swing-and-shoot gameplay of the 8-bit original onto a stunning 3D
environment of towering buildings, suspended roadways and monorails, deep
canyons and sheer rock faces, which are traversed using swinging, scaling,
climbing and wall-walking techniques.

The retail version of Bionic
Commando will ship for Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3 on Tuesday May 19th! Until then,
check out the online multiplayer demo available to download later this month.
