Split/Second Demo Coming This Week [UPDATE]

Nick Baynes, the director of the upcoming ‘Split/Second’ racer has revealed in an interview with Major Nelson that a demo is coming exclusively to Xbox LIVE Marketplace this week.

Speaking with Major Nelson on his podcast, Baynes said:

“There’s a demo exclusively out on Xbox, which is out this week I believe, so everyone will be able to play the airport track very, very soon on Xbox 360″

In Split Second, players take part in a fictional reality TV programme where participants race for money and glory. Throughout a race, players can build up their “powerplay” meter by performing stunts such as jumps and precision driving such as passing very close to objects and drifting.

A recently released trailer is shown above to give you an idea of gameplay.

Split/Second will be released in North America on May 18th and in Europe on May 21st for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

[UPDATE]

Within the last few minutes the demo has appeared on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace already.

Awesome! Queued up ready for later, have been looking forward to this for a while. Hopefully it will live up to expectations.

I just downloaded it and gave it a go. It’s pretty darn awesome if I do say so myself. Oh, and for racing purists out there, there is an inside the car view. Something that had me worried for a while. Can’t wait for the full game now! This or Blur…
