For those of you anxiously anticipating PSXE's Killzone 2 review, please be patient. We assure you, it's coming very soon…in the meantime, we have good news for our gaming buddies across the pond.
According to D-PAD magazine, SCEE has officially confirmed that the KZ2 playable demo will be available on the European PlayStation Store on February 5. If the Monday doldrums have you zoning out this morning, we'll remind you that the 5th is this Thursday. This demo will boast the first two sections of "Corinth River," which is the first level of the game, and players will also receive the initial tutorial sequence included in the final retail version. Here in the U.S., you can gain access to the playable demo by pre-ordering the game at GameStop (provided they have any codes left to hand out), or you can wait for it to arrive on the North American Store. Maybe it'll pop up this Thursday here, too. We had heard rumors that Sony wouldn't release the demo in the U.S. until just before the game launched on February 27, but that news didn't go over too well, if we remember correctly. The bottom line is that the earlier you get to play this awesome FPS, the better.
We'll keep you informed, but for now, you Euro gamers should be pleased. In only a few days time, you'll be able to sample what is certainly the best game of 2009 so far and also one of the best titles of the entire generation.
