Crackdown 2 Demo Lands on Xbox 360

10
The 1GB demo for Crackdown 2 has arrived in the Xbox Live Marketplace, giving a taste of Ruffian's sequel to Realtime Worlds' open-world super-powered crime-buster.

"This demo features accelerated Agent leveling, four player co-op, and the ability to earn Achievements to be awarded once you play the full version of Crackdown 2," Microsoft explains. As ever, the demo is initially exclusive to Xbox Live Gold subscribers.

Crackdown 2 is headed exclusively to Xbox 360 on July 6 in North America.

    4-player co-op in the DEMO!?! FUCK YES!!

    also, the ability to unlock achievements from the demo is a new one for me.

      That's a nice feature, actually. Would be great if that applies to the whole save profile on top of the achievements. The PC version of Prey had save game compatibility with the full version, but no one else really does stuff like that.

        yeh, it often puts me off playing the demo any more than i have to as it doesn't contribute to anything once you get the game. I didn't play much of the reach beta after i played it enough to know it was awesome (and then a little more to make sure) as i knew anything i unlocked would be taken from me anyway.

        I think most XBLA games have it in their demos.

          It's kind of different on XBLA, the option is usually between 'stop playing' and 'buy now and continue playing'.

      Is the coop limited in time like the single-player?
