The Xbox 360 demo will include two-levels: Assembly Place and Shanty Town. It will be available for one week on January 26 and can be played solo or cooperatively offline or on Xbox Live.
A trailer, which was shown at Tokyo’s Game Show last year, is scheduled to be released on Xbox Live this Friday, Jan. 16.
